Overview

Hi, I am Matt Shewmaker. I have been a band director in the Fort Smith AR area for 5 years now and have recently decided to return to teaching private lessons. I have a strong music theory and ear training background, so if you need some extra tutoring trying to pass the AP music theory exam, or just want some extra help on your all-region auditions - I am here and happy to help. My instrument through college is euphonium, but I am comfortable giving lessons on all wind instruments and guitar.
