I took lessons from Landon for about a half of a year every week. He is very knowledgeable and is well versed in his music knowledge including music theory. No matter what songs I brought to Landon he always knew how to teach me and learn the song him self in a very proficient manner.
My son Hunter (age 9) took lessons with Landon over the last year. During our first lesson Landon assisted us with choosing a guitar that was the right body size for Hunter. I was able to sit in on the first few lessons with them so I understood what Hunter needed to practice. Landon's directions for practicing were very clear and easy to follow. Hunter showed improvement weekly when he practiced 15 minutes per day.
I have been taking weekly lesson with Landon for 15 months and I can't begin to tell you how fun, challenging and creative the lessons are. I had never picked up a bass before this and now I'm on my third bass book and creating bass lines. Dream come true.
My son has been taking guitar lessons from Landon for the past six years. My son's skills have improved and he is able to play some impressive pieces thanks to Landon. Landon is teaching him both the acoustic guitar and electric guitar. He is very patient and supportive. My son enjoys the lessons because of the supportive experience and I think Landon has helped him build a love for the guitar that will stay with him for life.
Three months in, learning what I could not teach myself, from an accomplished, patient, encouraging and gifted teacher. Really enjoying this experience!
Mr. Landon is a great guitar teacher. I have been taking lessons from him for quite a while now and I can tell you that I have learned a ton. Unlike most teachers, who will traditonaly force music on to you, he wants you to learn what you are interested in. All in all, very good teacher with lots of musical knowledge to back it up.
Taking as little as eight electric guitar lessons from Landon Mattox has taught me a lot. Landon is a great teacher that takes his time to teach you as much as he can at a pace that is comfortable for you. Landon also teaches fun songs to learn with and if you take the initiative to practice and learn, it will take you a long way. Also, Landon has great methods to improve your overall guitar playing experience. He makes lessons and learning the guitar very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him.

Mission and Vision
The sad truth for most music lessons providers on Oahu is that Student’s pay between $50 to $80 per hour for lessons, but the instructor doing all the work gets only between $15 to $25 per hour of that fee before tax and other expenses. Honolulu Music Lessons Co-op is owned and operated by Landon Mattox who is also one of the teachers providing private lessons in Guitar, Ukulele and Bass. Landon believes that the practice of paying teachers only a third of the lesson fee is wrong and exploitative and our mission as a co-op is to provide excellent teaching facilities to highly qualified and experienced teachers in a way where the teacher keeps the lion’s share of lessons fees and we all work together to share the costs of rent, web design and marketing so that we can all provide excellent service in the long term. Lessons providers that only pay instructors a third of the lessons fees suffer from the following problems: their instructors may not be qualified or experienced or have a degree in music and they have high turnover which means your teacher may not be the same person month after month and year after year, the teachers may feel unhappy and burnt out during the lessons since they aren’t being paid a fair wage and may not work hard to provide students and families with their best attention and quality service.
