Get your shred on!
If you’re looking to increase your technical skills on guitar, I’m your guy! I began studying music in 2006 and earned my degree in Music from University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. I also Minored in Digital Media, focusing on classes in digital audio. I have studied under 7-time Grammy nominated Music Educator and Progressive Rock Hall of Fame inductee Alex Campbell and Alek Darson. Alek graduated from Berklee and has recorded with Jordan Rudess of Dream Theater. Additionally, Matt performed on bass with Cincinnati-based "The Grove" through 2017. My approach focuses on two things. First, simplifying the array of complex motions required to play guitar into concepts that are easy to remember and easy to execute. Second, I emphasizes properly structuring practice so that you can quickly build your skills. If you like stuff like Dream Theater and Symphony X... This is your dojo.

Matt is wicked knowledgeable not only about the mechanics of the guitar, but also the mental game of music. He knows how to help you transcend thinking about picking or chord shapes and get to the point where you're actually saying something with your music! An absolute gem.

Matt is great at explaining musical concepts in a way that anyone can understand. I always enjoy watching his lessons on guitar picking technique. I highly recommend taking a lesson with Matt as you will find he is patient and will teach each lesson in small bite size pieces!
