Matt is a fantastic instructor! The lessons were fun, creative, and absolutely increased my knowledge of the guitar as well as inspired me to play and practice more. I think that is ultimately one of the best qualities of a music instructor, that they make the subject fun and inspire in their students a hunger to practice and learn. I hope to take more lessons from Matt in the future. I would recommend Matt to anyone and everyone. I’ve never had a better time learning something new!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matt. We were looking for an instructor that could do it all; lessons in guitar, singing, songwriting, keyboards... a tall order, it seemed. But we were so very lucky to have found Matt, because he does it all - and more! He approached working with my son with great enthusiasm, and totally customized his lessons according to my son’s interests - which are a bit eclectic. He is incredibly knowledgeable, but also really knows how to work with kids and bring out the best in them. My son absolutely loves his lessons with Matt, and looks forward to them each week. Thank you, Matt, for all your wonderful work!!

Matt is great with my 13 year old son who is a bit on the quiet side. I see him making great progress with the piano and really enjoys learning with Matt! Matt has a great ability to connect with students, provides encouragement as needed, is patient, and carefully explains things in a manner you will remember them. I highly recommend him!

Matt has a fun approach to teaching my son, who is 11. The lessons are enjoyable for my son and Matt is very patient, yet challenges him when necessary. He sets clear expectations for practice and is very approachable.

Matt also has great communication with me (the parent) in regard with status updates in addition to reviewing with me what was involved in their lesson time together. My son says Matt is his favorite piano teacher that he’s ever had!

Matt was perfect! Better than I anticipated it would be. Got straight to work, no time was wasted. Usually when I have a first lesson in anything new that I’m learning the teacher takes that whole lesson talking about logistical theoretical fluff, but with Matt it was like learning on the job; all hands on. I immediately learned new chords, tricks and finger styles that I had only heard of in passing. Granted that could probably be because I’m somewhat considered “intermediate” at guitar, but nonetheless I felt like I learned more in that one lesson with Matt then I learned with some teachers in three! Also an all around motivational coach to have!

Matt is a great instructor. I’ve never played an instrument and have learned so much in just a few lessons so far. He’s dedicated and flexible, generous with his time, and makes every lesson equally instructive and fun. Looking forward to many more!

Matt is a great and very supportive teacher. I never played a string instrument and he helped me to start with a fun learning experience. I highly recommend Matt!

My experience was phenomenal. I learned so much in only 45min!!! I recommend take lessons to everyone, I guarantee you will love it as much as i do.

Matt is great! I knew absolutely nothing about the guitar and I was able to play chords and such after our first 45 minute lesson! He’s a fantastic teacher and extremely accommodating =)

Matthew was great. Quickly picked up on my strengths and weaknesses and found a way to address both. He has also been very accommodating with my schedule. Looking forward to future classes with him.
