House Concerts and Cover Gigs once COVID has moved on

While I normally just play original songs, this year, I'll be doing some cover gigs. I've got a ton of cover songs that I love and am looking forward to playing them. For more info, feel free to email me at mattyorkpembroke@gmail.com or call/text at 781-953-6177. I'll again be performing house concerts throughout New England. If you're interested in hosting one in the summer of 2021, please reach out to me and we can try and make it work. With the amount of clubs and small theaters that have already announced they are closing permanently, there's going to be a real need for concerts in places other than those places. House concerts are a great way to hear live music and I always enjoy playing them. If we book something for 2021 and things don't seem to yet to have returned to normal pandemic-wise, we can easily cancel/reschedule.

Guitar Lessons:

I began playing guitar when I was ten years old and have had a guitar in my hand ever since. Through the years, I've also taught guitar and have loved doing so. Now, with the pandemic canceling all live music for the foreseeable future, I've started teaching again. If you are interested in lessons, please feel free to email me at mattyorkpembroke@gmail.com or call/text me 781-953-6177. I'll be offering masked, in-person lessons for people in the Pembroke area and also Skype/Zoom calls. If you are an adult that owns a guitar and has always wanted to learn a few chords or more, I'd be happy to help. If you have a child that's interested in playing electric guitar, acoustic guitar or bass guitar, I'd be happy to get them started. In my experience, each student is different. Some of them want to just learn songs they hear on the radio, some want to become technical players and work from a guitar lesson book. Generally, I try to do a blend of both, but am happy to work with each student to find what's right for them. If there's one thing the pandemic has shown, it's that having a hobby is a nice thing and most of us have a lot of extra time on our hands right now, so I thought it'd be fun to start teaching again.
