Matthew is the best music teacher I’ve ever had! I learn so much every week and am extremely grateful for his ability to break things down for me in a way that I can understand.
my first guitar lesson with Matt was a blast! he knew exactly how to get me up and running given my level of experience which is beginner but not zero. can't wait to continue working / playing with him. he also honed right in on my love of tom petty and we started learning face in the crowd. so much fun.
My experience with Matt teaching me the in's and out's of word-press is more than I could ever have imagined. I am not sure if I would be as far along in setting up my business if not for his teaching style. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
