Feb 16, 2016 - Piano Lessons (for adults)
I've only had one lesson, but it was great, yes, innovative compared to lessons I've had before, and personalized to my needs and desires. I love that Matt comes to my house!

We have had four lessons so far for my 10 year old son. He absolutely loves them. He raves that Matt is patient and understanding and "teaches so I can learn". He looks forward to his lesson each week and is really taking taking on the responsibility of practicing. I highly recommend this teacher.

Matt teaches my my daughter the guitar and me the piano in our home. He's patient and adjusts the teachings based on the learner. We've been working with Matt for several months now. He started with my daughter, and now I am taking lessons. I recommended him to my neighbor who is also taking guitar lessons, so of course I would recommend him to anyone looking for lessons.

I have had piano lessons from Matt Hartle for going on two years. Our whole family is doing it. He teaches us one after the other, 5 altogether. I am the oldest at 68; the other ages are 40, 10, 8 and 6. We are all having a really good time with it. Matt caters each session to the person he is teaching so our lessons are all different. Some of us practice quite a bit, others very little. But even those who do not practice are improving which shows how much they are learning during the sessions. This guy is really great. He is extremely patient, dependable, punctual and flexible. There is nothing that could be better. We feel we have the perfect piano teacher.

Matt is an incredibly talented musician and teacher, and I can't say enough good things about him! I highly recommend him! He makes learning music fun and totally accessible for my son, who's 15. Matt is easy-going, supportive, fun, kind, and teaches music skills and theory through songs that his students pick and are interested in. My son gets to choose the songs he wants to learn, so "practicing" is a non-issue, since he loves the songs and gets to enjoy playing with them until their next lesson together. I couldn't find a better fit if I tried. My son loves it that Matt is a celebrated local musician who he has seen play and can tell his friends about and be proud of. When my kid grows up to be a rock star, or someone who can sit down with an instrument and play and sing songs that he and others love, we'll have Matt to thank. On top of all that, Matt makes house calls and has affordable rates! Now I just have to find the time to schedule my own lessons with him... :)

Matt's approach to teaching is extremely friendly and easy to understand. From the basics to advanced theory, he makes it fun. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Matt has an extensive academic and professional background in music which sets him apart. He pushes me past my comfort level to learn new, more efficient guitar techniques while imparting some music theory. He is very professional, but he's fun to play guitar with. Great communication, excellent price, always on time!
