About Matthew


Bio

Hello, I'm Matthew! I've been a private tutor and gigging musician for my band for over 7 years. In 2017, I earned a B.F.A. in Acting from Towson U which has seriously enhanced by ability to play live. These days, you have countless options when it comes to guitar tutors. If you want someone who spent years in college learning the "perfect" way to play guitar, you can find them! You could choose the Peabody Masters graduate with their own home studio, or perhaps the ancient professor of music...

Hello, I'm Matthew! I've been a private tutor and gigging musician for my band for over 7 years. In 2017, I earned a B.F.A. in Acting from Towson U which has seriously enhanced by ability to play live. These days, you have countless options when it comes to guitar tutors. If you want someone who spent years in college learning the "perfect" way to play guitar, you can find them! You could choose the Peabody Masters graduate with their own home studio, or perhaps the ancient professor of music theory. Most of these candidates have something missing though. These tutors will all teach you how to PLAY the guitar, at varying degrees. But who will teach you how to PERFORM with the guitar? Me!

With experience on hundreds of stages across the east coast for audiences ranging from dozens to thousands, I will surely elevate your playing to not only be graceful and beautiful, but also full of energy and emotion that will convey to any audience. Playing to an audience of one? No problem! Everything that comes out of your guitar starts within you, so exploring how to channel your music fluidly and creatively is critical not only to performing, but enjoying it as a hobby as well. Having fun while playing the guitar is the entire point and I like to focus on the fun!

My lessons include:
All chord formations across the fretboard (Barred and Open)
Scales
Octaves
Muting
Alternative picking
Harmonics (Pinch and Natural)
Hammer Ons and Pull Offs
Tapping
Triplets
Percussive Strumming
and much more!

I work with all age ranges and levels of experience. If you need some help coordinating your strumming and fretting hands, no problem. If you're trying to learn Eruption by Eddie Van Halen, I can help. What I've found to be most important is the desire to learn in the tutees! So if you are passionate about learning this beautiful instrument, or trying to improve your stage presence and performance, I'm your guy! If you have any questions, comments, or would like to schedule a lesson, feel free to message me!
