I take pride in delivering professional service to my customers and sharing the love of music with my students. Read what some of my satisfied customers have said!

“We came to Matt with a vague description of our ideas for a casual mix of acoustic melodies that wouldn't be overpowering but would still be heartfelt during our wedding, and all we can say is that Matt has exceeded our expectations tenfold.

Our families and friends all walked away saying that his talent absolutely made the atmosphere of our wedding exactly what we wanted it to be."

Angela & Jake


"Thank you so much for playing at my ceremony. It was beautiful. The whole moment was perfectly tied in with the music.

My now husband said as soon as he realized it was Fast Car he was no good inside. The only reason he had it semi together was because the baby was tugging at his pant leg.

Words can’t describe that moment. You're very talented. Thank you again!"

Allie & Stephen


"Matthew was great – his variety of music was appreciated and enjoyed by all...and he certainly fit the setting – that being said I think he would fit into any setting.

Plus he’s personable and presents himself well – a part of the equation too when hiring someone. The suggestions he made fit the wedding perfectly."



"I've always wanted to walk down the aisle with the backdrop of a classical guitar. Your Cavatina was perfect and it created just the atmosphere that we wanted for our ceremony. It connects a truly vivid emotion to that memory.

Thank you again for sharing the gift of your beautiful talent with our family and friends. It was one of the real highlights of our special day!"

Kelly & Corey


“Tristan and I couldn't go without expressing how much all of our friends and family loved your beautiful performance and how honoured we were to have you play at our wedding! So many guests wanted to know how we found such a talent and they paid compliments to you, too many to relate in this short thank you.

Your fingers must have been so tired after hours of playing but it never showed in your music! Instead, everyone could hear your warmth, your enthusiasm, and your talent. You created such a joyful and memorable atmosphere for us on our special day. Learning our favorite song, in just a week, to play at the ceremony and reception was the icing on the cake. My family said it was as if we were having a private concert! Thank you again so much for your abilities, flexibility, and professionalism. You added the magic to our special day."

Tristan & Andrea

"Thank you so much for giving our son a wonderful first year with his guitar. He is very proud of being a guitar player. He has great plans to bring his guitar on our upcoming camping trip and "sit on the tailgate" and play his favourites.

The recitals were extremely beneficial to his self-confidence, and we are glad you encouraged his participation. He really looks up to you and we look forward to September. Have a great summer!"
