This week's teachable moment:
Student: I want to play this song but it has a bunch of "hashtag" notes in it.
Dr. Matt: Hmmm...Time for a lesson on accidentals!


My favorite recital of the year is today (12/20/15). The Music Factory's annual Holiday Recital. This year my students are performing holiday music at the Meridian Public Library on Cherry Ave. Show starts at 3 pm. All are welcome. Happy Holidays!


Sometimes my students say things that make me laugh and smile. Yesterday, when Logan came to his lesson I asked him, "Did you have a good week practicing your song?" He said, "Yes I did but remember, I'm no professional...but I think it sounds pretty good." Ha, now that made me chuckle.


Announcing The Music Factory Idaho's Spring Recital: Saturday, May 17 @ 3pm at Fresco Arts Academy in Eagle. Come watch the stars of tomorrow sharpen their skills. Free.

Yay! A new Sweetwater catalog. Just what I need to feed my GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). If you don't get these catalogs, you should. They are a great free source of info on gear for the whole band.

Highway To Hell - Bruce Springsteen - Perth Arena 8-2-14

Ok one more for today. This is a strange combo, Springsteen doing AC/DC, but I think if he works at it The Boss just might have a chance as a cover band. ;-) Of course, surrounding yourself with Nils Lofgren, Steven Van Zandt and Tom Morello just might help.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett At Guitar Center

Here's a pretty cool interview with Metallica's Kirk Hammett. I can relate to how he speaks of the guitar taking over his life and becoming his passion.

Metallica's Kirk Hammett At Guitar Center Kirk Hammett shared some pretty cool stuff with us in the Guitar Center San Francisco store. History, influences, and even a timeless riff he wrote when he w...

My youngest student, Eva (6), left me a message on my whiteboard yesterday. How sweet is that?


Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to play music and you feed their soul for a lifetime.
