May 2009

My name is Matthew K. I am a 30 year old musician and music lover.
I started playing the piano and drums about 15 years ago. I began writing my own music as a teenager. In school I took private lessons on each, piano, voice and drums. I am experienced teaching on each of these instruments as well. I love working with kids and all age groups and getting people excited about music and all it's possibilities!
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

Private Lessons

I gave private guitar lessons out of the students home to two sisters, ages 6 and 10. They were the children of a family member's co workers. Being younger students and new to the instrument, much of our time was spent on very basic exercises that apply to learning any instrument.

I took my first lesson with Matthew and he is very patient and pleasant individual. Took time to explain what was being taught and why. Helped me better understand my equipment and how to set it up and get it in tune. I appreciate his effort.

Matt communicated very well prior to my lesson and was prepared to review the areas I asked to focus on. He is encouraging and flexible to adjust the lesson as I progressed.
