I teach beginning to advanced students. Beginning students can be the most difficult to teach, and this is a critical time to get a qualified teacher. I prepare my more advanced students to work professionally.
I teach most styles from rock to jazz to classical with a heavy emphasis on composition and improvisation. My students learn their scales and how to apply those scales to music. I also teach chord progressions and construction.
Hi, I'm Matt and I love teaching the Guitar! I have played now for 18 years and have experience in playing classical acoustic, steel string acoustic, electric guitar, and Ukulele. eight of those years I have been performing for New Promise Lutheran Church and teaching lessons, both privately at the St. George school of music and Resonance school of music. As a father of two, I enjoy and love teaching Children and beginning students. I am also able to teach players of all ages and skill levels with a solid and fun approach to the Guitar that will give you the foundation you need to not only learn, but to keep growing long after our time together has passed. I host private lessons at my home or I can come to yours. I look forward to hearing from you!
