Matt, you are such a good teacher and influence on her. I appreciate how you encourage her to take risks and put herself out there and have confidence in herself. Parenting a teenager comes with its own set of challenges, and I am grateful for all the positive role models in her life like you.

Will, he may have looked like a deer in headlights most of the performance, but he beamed the whole way home. What an amazing learning experience. Thank you for believing in him and guiding him through these practical lessons, inside and outside the box.

Dear Troy, my daughter has enjoyed music lessons so much with you, and it is so amazing to watch her learn and grow with your guidance. She comes home from her lessons with you with a smile that lights up the room and all she wants to do is play the guitar. We never could have imagined such a wonderful gift for her.

Dear Matt, I have taken lessons with many guitar teachers over the years, but no one has been able to help me smash the barriers I've been running into like you. I see how you are able to work with all kinds of ages and skill levels, and I just have to tell you that you have a special gift both as a teacher and as a musician.
