I specialize in teaching beginning guitar students. The curriculum is customized for the student in regards to their goals and learning pace. Lessons with me are always fun and you learn the songs and techniques that YOU want to learn. All major styles are taught including Classic and Modern Rock, Alternative, Blues, Classical, Country, Progressive, Pop Top 40, etc. Acoustic, Electric & Classical guitars available for the student to use during the 30 or 45 minute lesson. All lessons are taught in my home studio in the OAK CLIFF, TX area.

Matt is a wonderful teacher who has helped me grow with my guitar. He's patient and very relaxed which definitely helps me. I would recommend him to everyone, beginner or expert!

Matt mixes in real songs with lessons that build early skills for someone just starting out. He also plays amazingly well and shows us how good I can be if I stick with it. Great time.

Matt is awesome! I've been learning from him for over 2 years and I couldn't have reached my goals without his knowledge. He is great at all styles and teaches me the things I want to learn!

Matthew has great teaching technique that keeps you interested & wanting to learn more. Helps you build a very good foundation to build on as a beginner. Keeps the lessons fun but yet informative. Knowledgeable about all types of music. Beginner to advance players can benefit from Matthew's lessons. I highly recommend him.
