    Blues is one of the most influential styles that carries across to different genres of music.

At age 71, I had never learned to play a musical instrument of any kind but learning to play The Blues on electric guitar was on my retirement bucket list. Matt was recommended to me and I found him to be a very impressive and talented young man. I started learning some basics on my own from books and YouTube but since commencing lessons with Matt 18 months ago my I feel my playing has advanced in leaps and bounds. Matt lets me concentrate on the areas I enjoy but every week adds something outside my comfort zone so that I am constantly improving to the point where I feel I am now playing some reasonable Blues. I would highly recommend Matt as he is a patient and talented teacher and learning with him has far exceeded my expectations.
