Teacher: Matt Williamson

See Classes Taught by This Teacher »

Matt Williamson comes to NYC Guitar School from Alabama. As a child, every year he asked his parents for an electric guitar. After four years they gave in to what they assumed was a passing fancy. Within a year, Matt had formed a band and was playing in front of the school, in talents shows, etc. as he mastered rock guitar. He went on to get a degree in Music from the University of Montevallo, south of Birmingham, AL, where he intensely studied classical guitar technique, theory, ear training…and then jazz. He not only learned guitar, but taught thousands of guitar lessons for the community school of music and The Guitar Gallery in Pelham, Alabama. Now, a year after graduating from college, he has joined us in NYC in order to intensify and further his guitar experience. We are excited about landing him as a teacher and we know our students will benefit from his immense commitment to his craft.

Attended: Guitar I: Absolute Beginners

I learned so much in the last ten weeks, and it is broken down in a way that makes it easy to learn. I tried teaching myself originally, but that didn't work very well, so I decided to take these classes. From the first class, you play actual songs and gain confidence in your playing. I would highly recommend this class to any beginner or anyone who is thinking of beginning guitar lessons.

Attended: Bass I: Bass Guitar for Absolute Beginners

Great course, though I wish it were more than one hour a week!


Attended: Bass I: Bass Guitar for Absolute Beginners

This class is ideal for those who have little to no experience playing the bass or any instrument. Tia is very patient and the course is crafted around suggestions of the students based on interest and skill level. I highly recommend her as a teacher. She breaks everything down in a way that is understandable and fun to continue on and practice at home with. I will probably take another class with Tia in the future.
