I always try to be patient and my goal is always that you walk away with something new to work on, feeling empowered and able to work on it.

Matt is a phenomenal guitar teacher! He has the formal education and the passion necessary to be a truly effective instructor. After every lesson, he e-mails me a summary of what I need to work on.
