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

It is beneficial for young students to start off by playing on a half size or three-quarter size acoustic guitar. Older students who can manage to hold their guitar comfortably may wish to use an electric guitar. A brand new student model guitar can be purchased for between $150 - $200. Amplification and guitar cables will need to be bought at additional costs for those wanting to play electric guitar. Students who enjoy and like playing their instrument will develop faster, so it is important to try and buy high quality instruments as these are typically easier to play.
Save time by having a teacher come to your home! No need to pack up and transport your guitar between lessons, and no need to guzzle gas either. Our teachers provide a private, customized one-on-one lessons for each student, and your home will be both a comfortable and safe environment.
Students typically start with the basics, such as how to hold the guitar, how fret notes with the left hand, and how to strum or pluck the strings with the right. Teachers will cover sight reading, guitar chords, and basic music theory, all of which are needed for students to perform and understands the inner-workings of their favorite songs. More advanced students can work on jazz improvization, classical technique, or rock or blues guitar solos.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the guitar do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favorite tunes, learn to compose your own music, develop a new technique or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality! Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can take time. With regular lessons and plenty of practice, you will gradually start to see improvements in your guitar playing, and will be well on your way to achieving your goals.
Students are able to start taking guitar lessons with Musika at age 6. For students this young, we recommend that they start off by using a half-sized classical guitar with nylon strings. Students in this age group will start by learning to play simple melodies using the top strings of the guitar, as will be able to progress on to forming chords and playing more advanced songs by the ages of 7-8 years old. Students are able to graduate to using a full sized guitar by ages 10-12, and will likely want to learn to play rock on an electric guitar.
