Matthew enjoys sharing his love for music by teaching and tutoring students in music. His instruction is fun and friendly with an academic approach, in which he emphasizes the importance of learning to read music, proper playing techniques and good practice habits. He specializes in teaching guitar, but offers beginner lessons on the banjo, mandolin, ukulele and electric bass.
"Having been self-taught on the guitar for close to 6 years and reaching a personal stagnation point, I hired Matt to help me reach beyond my known personal capabilities and limitations. While I was excited to receive formal instruction, I was quite adamant that I would not able to read music or understand music theory. Matt quickly extinguished my apprehensions and self doubts through his friendly and relaxed attitude, and extremely dynamic and broad scope of musical knowledge. Not only has my technique in playing grown by leaps and bounds, I can also proudly say that I can already play multiple pieces of sheet music. Matt is a master of his craft and it will rub off on anybody who recieves instruction from him."
