Introducing Matt McCarthy

After studying a Bachelor degree in Music many years ago, I developed a whole new love of learning for the guitar. So much so, that I knew passing on my knowledge and passion was going to be an important part of my life journey. That’s why I’m here – to provide you with the highest quality guitar resources and coaching possible, so that you can become the guitar player you’ve always dreamed of being.

Aside from teaching, I also compose and arrange music. My latest projects include an album of Stardew Valley (video game) acoustic guitar arrangements, and a video game that I am composing the music and creating the art for. Keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested in seeing the results of these projects!

I play guitar for The Lighthearts playing gigs all around Brisbane and surrounding areas including Eat Street, Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and more! 

I also play guitar in a wedding duo with my good buddy Declan! We’ve arranged over 50 songs to perform for the couples very special day.

As you can probably tell, my life is pure creativity and I LOVE IT. If I’m not creating I feel extremely out of purpose and misguided. Sometimes I feel trapped by staying indoors to work on these projects so you can also catch me hiking and adventuring through our beautiful country with my guitar shooting videos for my fingerstyle arrangements.

I’m am honestly so grateful to be playing music full-time and guiding others on their guitar journeys. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing right now.

It’s an exciting journey, and I hope to see you join me! 

To your success,

- Matt
