MIchael K

Instruments:

Michael first picked up the guitar at the late age of 16, and spent the next five years teaching himself how to play the instrument. He formally began study in 1987 when he enrolled at The Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) in Hollywood, California. The experience at GIT provided Michael with the opportunity to pick the minds of legendary guitarists such as Joe Pass, Joe Diorio, and Tommy Tedesco. In 1993, Michael began private study with world-renowned music educator Dick Grove. Their student-mentor relationship turned into a friendship that lasted up until Dick's untimely passing in 1998. Michael has additional studies at the University of Hawai`i and holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Technology & Music Education, and a Masters of Education (MEd) in Educational Technology. As a music instructor, Michael had provided group and private instruction through the non-profit organization Introduction to the Arts (ITTA), King Intermediate School, Honolulu Community College, Kapiolani Community College, The Hawai`i Music Institute at Windward Community College, and The Word of Life Christian Academy. He is currently teaching privately and through the non-profit organization Introduction to the Arts.

I moved to Honolulu in 2010 where I have been teaching 30-40 private guitar, bass guitar and ukulele students. Before that, I taught for 4 years from 2007-2010 at Xinghai Conservatory of Music in Guangzhou, China in the Jazz Studies Department after earning a Master's in Jazz Studies and a Master's in Music Education from University of North Texas in 2005. I have also been a guest lecturer at University of Hawaii at Manoa for their World Music Course on the topic of early African American Music Research. I have studied with jazz guitar guru, Corey Christiansen over the past 2 years and have performed locally at University of Hawaii at Manoa's Orvis Auditorium, Blaisdell Concert Hall, The Bishop Museum and Honolulu Museum of Art. I teach students of all ages and am equally passionate about my teaching as I am about performance. Please visit my website: http://www.landonmattox.com to listen to my music.

More Information About Guitar Lessons

For young beginner students, it is recommended that they start their guitar lessons by playing on a half or three-quarter sized acoustic guitar. If they can do so comfortably, older students may like to start off with a full-sized acoustic or electric guitar. There are a variety of different student model guitars available that from new, will cost between $150 - $200. This price does not include the costs of amplification or guitar cables, which will also need to be purchased for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students are more likely to have fun learning the guitar if they find it easy to play. Consider purchasing the highest quality instrument possible as these often feel nicer to use and are easier to play.
Need to save time because of your busy schedule? Why not try in-home guitar lessons. A Musika teacher can travel to your home and provide excellent quality instruction in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
The most important thing is that students learn how to have fun when they are playing the guitar! It can be a challenge to master the basics, and it does take a lot of practice, but with the proper teacher, students can be playing their favorite songs without too much trouble. Topics covered during guitar lessons include: learning the notes, open chords, and barre chords, learning how to strum and pluck with the fingers and pick, and also sightreading techniques and music theory.
We recommend that adult students looking to start guitar lessons have a clear goal in mind - such as learning to play a few of their favorite songs. When you start lessons, a teacher will help you unlock the skills required to reach your goals. Keep in mind that you might not be able to start off with the exact song you want to learn - it could take months of study and practice to learn all of the notes and chords required to turn your dream into a reality.
Students can start as young as age 6 with a half size classical guitar (nylon strings), by playing simple songs on the top strings. Most students are able to form chords by age 7 or 8, and begin learning how to play and sing along with their favorite songs. Older students will graduate to being able to handle a full size guitar around ages 10-12, which is when many students become interested in learning rock guitar and want to get an electric.
