“Matt Cowe’s depth of experience covers all the bases. From music theory, live performance, improvisation, and recording. He has highly developed music transcription skills at a level of accuracy that constantly surprises me. Matt has transcribed guitar works over a wide variety of genres including classical, jazz, blues, ragtime and fingerpicking and I’m sure that has contributed to his great depth of practical exposure and insight into those genres. Matt is also a great guitarist technically – one only needs to listen to him for five seconds to work that out.
Best of all, Matt is a great teacher with a lot of formal musical education of his own behind him and he patiently provides lessons and materials that have greatly assisted me. His mentoring and tuition via Skype is the best thing I’ve done musically in years.”
