About Matt

I have been teaching guitar to students on the East and West Coasts of the United States for over 20 years. I was always interested in music and made my first “recording” at the age of 2 and a half. I got serious about playing the guitar when I was 10 years old after hearing the legendary Randy

Saxophone:
A family of woodwind instruments, saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. Like the clarinet, saxophones have holes in the instrument which the player closes using a system of key mechanisms. When the player presses a key, this typically causes a pad to close over a hole. There is soprano, alto, tenor, bass and baritone saxophones. The great thing about learning saxophone is it is almost the same fingers as flute and clarinet! We will start with the basics of learning finger placement, breath control, notes, reading, rhythms, songs, theory and improvising.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.
John J Conlon
Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Playing guitar is super fun, and my goal is to help others not just to learn, but to enjoy the learning process and unlock the joy of music in their lives. In addition to gaining an understanding of how the instrument works, you'll learn some basic terminology and even a bit of music theory while also learning to play your favorite songs. Then you can take what you learn and even try writing your own songs!

When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!

Max is a very patient and experienced teacher. I enjoyed my lesson with him and will be back for more.

All student's aren't the same, and it is important you find a teacher who teaches in a way that speaks clearly to you.

Austin was great. I hadn't picked up the guitar in years, and he made restarting the learning curve approachable by adapting to my needs and specific learning desires. He is competent, easy to talk to and walks you through each step using the technology platforms, his knowledge and specific examples to learn the best techniques to achieve your goals. I'll be back again for more.

I have studied Flamenco for over 20 years. During that time, I've had the opportunity to perform with many of the top artists in the Bay Area, as well as study with masters from Spain.

I have studied all of the parts of the art form to varying degrees: toque, cante, baile, palmas, cajon, but my areas of specialization would be toque (guitar) and cante (singing).

Mariano
I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general.
George McKale
Simply put, David is a great teacher. His lessons incorporated the perfect blend of theory and patience while opening up new horizons on the fret board. His style of teaching is very flexible so that one can hone in on what excites them. For me, that was jazz and David made a huge difference in my creativity.
Selina
David did a wonderful job, teaching me bass via Zoom with a lot of focus on what I wanted to do. Even though my interests ranged from technical to classical to theoretical to funk, he always had something he could show me and proved to have great knowledge of the instrument as well as of music theory and history. I would recommend him to anyone.
