"Before studying with Dr. Matt I garnered awards as a jazz guitarist and had degrees from the New England Conservatory, plus my PhD. I studied with John Scofield, Wayne Krantz, and many other jazz legends. THEN I studied with Matt. WOW! not only is Matt and outstanding player, he's easily the best teacher I've studied with." - Dr. Roland Davis

Che Bonilla, MWG Member

This shy guitarist learned to comp, solo, & build chord melodies over standards.

Before MWG

  • Struggled with soloing over standards.
  • Didn’t know how to build or use jazz chords.
  • Couldn’t play scales, modes, or arpeggios.

After MWG

  • Soloing over standards with sidestepping, enclosures, & more.
  • Nailing chord-scale relationships and how to solo with modes.
  • Creating chord melodies over jazz standards.

“Being a part of MWG is like having a personal guitar teacher who shows up regularly at your home, whenever you need them, to clarity every issue. Matt's always there to answer ANY question, regardless of level or how simple you think the question is. The amount of material on MWG is enough to maintain your music education for years. On top of that, All Access members are the most helpful, warm, and kind folks out there. I started out shy, unwilling to post videos. Now I post almost daily and the support I receive has taken my playing way beyond my expectations.” – Che Bonilla - USA

"After teaching thousands of students over the past 25 years, I honestly believe that with the right guidance, creative workouts, and a supportive community, every guitarist can learn to play jazz and have tons of fun along the way." - Matt Warnock Founder MWG

Harvey Willensky, MWG Member

Classical guitarist falls in love with jazz, improvising, and chord melodies.

Before MWG

  • I wanted to improvise and play more freely.
  • I'd never played with a group or backing track.
  • Rhythms when soloing and comping were a struggle.
  • I got lost in the form and couldn't hear chord changes.

After MWG

  • I can improvise over standards in real time.
  • My timing & rhythm has improved dramatically.
  • My arrangements and chord melodies have improved significantly.
  • Listening to jazz is more enjoyable. I now understand what I’m hearing.

“I’ve been playing classical guitar for 60 years, and jazz for 5. MWG’s structure, material, and support has given more experience and growth than any other musical learning experience I’ve ever had. Not only has MWG improved my jazz playing, it’s improved my classical playing as well.” – Harvey Willensky - USA
