I've been teaching guitar for the past 12 years, and more recently bass, ukulele, piano/keys, voice, percussion and studio recording as well. I have taught students ranging from child to adult, as well as working for two years as a caretaker with mentally challenged and special needs individuals. Being a teacher involves much more than just following curriculum out of a book. Each student has their unique way of absorbing information, and we should always remain sensitive to that. My aim is to identify what makes music exciting to the student and ultimately, in turn help them create music that will excite them as well.
Matthew has patience and is able to teach even the tiniest of tots. He worked with my 6 year old and managed to get him excited about coming to each lesson. He has a structure which enables the child to function at their own pace and understands each student is individual in their learning techniques. Thank you Matthew!
Matt is an outstanding and very knowledgeable teacher but that's not all, he is always kind, extremely patient and positive, never, ever a negative comment no matter what. He always propels my learning forward with positive comments and ideas and as a beginner guitar player I simply can't ask for more. Do yourself a favor and give him a try, you will be happy you did.
Matthew is a great as a piano teacher and has been teaching my daughter for a while now. It’s also been great with him working around our schedule when we can’t make it to our scheduled weekly sessions. I highly recommend him.
My 16-year-old is loving her weekly piano lessons with Matthew! She had never taken lessons before, but felt comfortable with Matthew right away. He's a great teacher and has a very pleasant demeanor. It's also very convenient, as he accommodates us in his home studio for the lessons. Thank you, Matthew!
Wonderful teacher, I am new to guitar and so far I have been enjoying all the lessons and can’t wait for each new lesson that awaits.
Great teacher in home lesson, Really appreciate you working around my schedule thanks,!see Matthew once a week making great progress,Really professional, teaches me songs and power chords And always open to teach me what I want to learn thanks!
I wanted to start soloing and get better at struming and Matthew wrote down scales and tabs that would help me after the lesson so I could practice at home! He is also always open to learn and teach any song/style and is super nice!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
