About Matt

After graduating from Juilliard, I have taught classical guitar and basic guitar in all styles (Beatles tunes included!). Whether the student is completely new to the guitar or an advanced player, engaging and growing their abilities and confidence is my main goal. Encouraging students to express their innate musicality whilst having fun learning the guitar is central to how I teach.

Classical and basics in all styles welcome and lessons are generally 1 hour at the student's home. 45 minute and extended time lessons are also available. Specific study materials are tailored to each student. For example, for a beginner student, we might focus on the basics of creating sound - holding the guitar, hand positions and strumming styles. For an intermediate student, we might have a class on tuning and changing the guitar strings or go on a field trip to the guitar shop to choose new music, strings and accessories. For advanced students, we might have extended lessons in preparation for a competition or conservatory recording session.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Guitar

I studied classical guitar with Goran Sollscher at the Malmö Academy of Music and then at the Juilliard School. Since I've been in New York, I've taught several private students in their own homes and found it very enjoyable.
