Diving deeper into guitar concepts, he studied under guitar masters Taimoor Saeedi and Sanjay Mishra, a student of the legendary guitarist Jerry Garcia. His background in traditional music theory was obtained under the tutelage of Dr. James Fay and Professor Rebert Webb. Matt was deeply humbled to learn that his analysis of Claude Debussy's Nuages was used as an example for future advanced music theory classes.
