Hey there, I'm Matt!

Like you, I’m a guitarist at heart. I’m also a passionate teacher who lives for people to discover their love of guitar and grow in the practice room.

Since 2011 I’ve published thousands of lessons for sites including Guitar World, Guitar Player, Guitar Aficionado, and my own website, mwgcourses.com.

I’ve also played over 2,500 gigs around the world, from solo concerts to big bands and everything in between.

I launched MWG courses in 2019 to give guitarists of all levels the absolute best learning experience possible through multimedia, video-based courses.

I believe that learning guitar and having fun are not mutually exclusive.

You can reach your maximum musical potential and enjoy your lifelong guitar journey…and that’s what I’m here to teach you.

"I've made more progress in one month than in years of other lessons ..."


"As a female guitarist, Matt Warnock and his "Play Jazz Guitar" FB group has opened up a whole new world for me - one of true inclusivity, encouragement and off-the-charts inspiration. Not only do I feel respected and motivated, but I've made more progress in one month than in years of other lessons. Matt offers an environment where you don't have to worry about negativity or ego, but can concentrate instead on musical growth and a mutual love of jazz!"

"I studied with Matt for four years - he taught me everything I know about jazz, how to be a well rounded musician and, more importantly, the art of musicianship on and off the stage. He also taught me how to teach, and thanks to this confidence, today I run a music school, The Goa Jazz Academy. Thanks to Matt’s financial support and coaching, together we run the GJA-GFL Jazz Ensemble Scholarship program offered to young musicians in Goa and across India - one of our Ensembles was even selected to open for one of India's leading jazz festivals - the Jazz India Circuit, 2020."
