Every musician was first and foremost a fan of music. My love of music began when my mother took me to a performance of Beethoven's fifth symphony when, coincidentally, I was five. From that point, I started fervently listening to my mother's records (those are the huge, black monstrosities th

A godsend. Matt is super approachable and got me launched back into playing in a meaningful way. Widely knowledgeable, he never missed a beat and was able to help with everything from details of technique to overall approach, and successfully introduce new and challenging music. When it came time to learn recording he was always ready a couple steps ahead to show efficient ways to get things done.
Alex
Matthew helped me work on pop and bossa nova songs for guitar. He is a patient and easy-going teacher who helped me at my own pace. We went over finger style techniques and rhythmic exercises. I have been enjoying lessons and I look forward to studying more with him.
Lisa
Matt is great! He is very patient and explains things step-by-step in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner. And best of all, he never makes you feel like any questions you ask, is irrelevant or repetitious. I highly recommend Matt, and plan on continuing to take lessons from him in the future!!

"Ahmad is great. I started with him in November last year and have been seeing him weekly since. He's that perfect blend of very, very smart about guitar+music, but down to earth in his style and methodology. He's also a great guy and makes lessons fun. I discovered Ahmad from the Internet then found out that a close friend had learned guitar from him a couple of years ago. She raves about him. Bottom-line: if you're looking for quality guitar instruction from a genuine and very capable teacher you can't do better than Ahmad."

"I've been studying classical guitar with William (at his location) for almost 3 months now. Initially, he helped me find an instrument that would meet my needs and taught me how to care for it. I'd call him a connoisseur of classical acoustic guitars! He know how they should sound and has valuable guidance to provide for beginning guitarists like me who may not be as able to see or hear the differences. I'm glad I got his advice before making a commitment / investment on a particular instrument.

I am 46 and have a musical background (I already play both piano and trombone). William has very effectively adapted his teaching to fit with the skills I already have. In some cases that means speeding up and in other cases going back to basics to make sure I have the fundamentals down.

His knowledge of music and musical instruments enables him to very effectively describe to experienced musicians how the guitar is different from what they are used to and what they'll need to pay attention to.

William has been very focused on the details of correct technique, preferring to slow down and work specific things rather than moving on or cutting corners for the sake of getting through the method materials. If you want to learn how to play completely, correctly, efficiently and without hurting yourself William is your teacher.

One of the things I appreciate the most is William's patience. He's a stickler for correct technique so he doesn't let errors slide, but he corrects in a way that is both helpful and encouraging. There's no bit of guidance that he's given me that, when I put it into practice, doesn't dramatically help my progress. I've learned in a very short time to really listen to him. He knows what he's talking about.

I can wholeheartedly recommend William to anyone wanting to learn to play guitar. He's one of the best music instructors I've ever had!

I'm happy to answer anyone's questions on my experiences with William or this review."

The lessons are very productive while still being very enjoyable. I'd recommend him for both for students who are learning a new instrument or already have a musical background."
