About Matthew W.

My strong suits are teaching rhythm guitar, jazz chord chart comping, fingerpicking/fingerstyle/Travis, easy-to-intermediate classical technique, improvisation, composition/songwriting, music recording, music production, music theory, learning songs by ear, and music memorization. ...I can’t teach speed metal solos, sorry.  I wish I could!

I taught Music Technology courses at American University as an Adjunct Professor for well over a decade; mainly teaching the industry-standard recording software Pro Tools. 

*** Lesson Details ***
If you know where you want to go I can get you from point A to point B efficiently. I'll get you where you want to go. I structure lessons based on a student's specific needs and ability. I am a laid-back fellow, and very patient, but if you need frequent encouragement and nagging I can do that too.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electronic drumset, bass amp, bass, guitar amps, guitars (electric, nylon, steel-string, 12-string), ukuleles, keyboard, upright piano, etc.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar, ukulele, bass, and amp.

*** Student Equipment ***
I am happy to help a new student pick out an instrument at a local music store, but I no longer provide instrument rentals. I recommend students purchase the following accessories before or soon after the first lesson:
Capo: Schubb C1
Clip-on Tuner: Snark SN-1X
Guitar Picks: Variety Pack (thin, medium, and heavy)
Method Book: To be determined after the first or second lesson

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: beginners, rock, pop, oldies, beginning to intermediate jazz and beginning to intermediate classical, improvising and finger style guitar
