Learning an instrument, and learning music can seem like a chore, or something
that takes energy....
I'd like to help you find a way to do it that gives you energy.

Here's what some of my students are saying:
" Matthew is the one you want to study guitar with and play music with. His ability to communicate one on one is incredible. I have had the pleasure to study with Matthew as well as tour with him and my experience has been wonderful, fun and deeply illuminating. Study guitar with him. You will enjoy it immensly."
"Matthew is a skilled, experienced guitar teacher and a sincere, conscientious human being. He listens to my specific musical aspirations and creates engaging practices to help me meet them. Matthew says that guitar practice needs to be fun. His teaching is done in this spirit. I have been studying with Matthew for 7 years and, like my barber and auto mechanic, I am staying with him"
"Matthew is a truly excellent guitar teacher. Not only is he a complete expert in all elements of playing and musicianship, he was able to respond exactly to my needs and wishes about how to improve my playing. He's patient, clear and also a lot of fun to work with! I give him my highest recommendation and would definitely send anyone who wanted to learn guitar to him for lessons."
"Basically, I called him, told him what was bugging me (for the past 6 years) about my playing and he showed my how to fix it the first lesson. He has made music theory make sense to me and has a lot of awesome ideas on how to make practicing enjoyable. A+++++ "
" As a student of jazz guitar.Matthew was able to help me breakthrough musical barriers with his superior teaching methods.He will ask you what you want to learn,and set up a program that is tailored to your level.I have studied with many teachers but none more able to communicate musically as Matthew"
" Matt makes lessons fun and easy, he's the wright teacher"
" Matthew is THE BEST! A wonderful teacher in the best sense of the word: he listens, he's patient, he's focused, and goes with his students when + where they are capable of going! Not too many people can play beautifully + teach well! (He's been my teacher for 3 years)."
I have played a variety of styles professionally since the age of 11. I studied at the New Orleans Center for the Create Arts, and at The University of New Orleans in the Jazz Studies program.
When I am not teaching, I record and produce music and tour internationally with the Guruganesha Band.
