Teaching Philosophy

Our Instructors’ teaching methods are modern, adaptable to students’ specific needs and aren’t limited to specific styles of music. We teach music as an art in an encouraging patient and positive way and focus on the skills students need to pursue their own specific or diverse music interests by emphasizing music fundamentals and basic skills that are needed to be resourceful and to study music independently and proficiently and play with creativity and expressiveness. We make use of vast libraries of digital music resources and online resources, multimedia, apps and other cutting edge technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience and to get students the sheet music, transcriptions and resources they need for success instantly.

Mission & Vision

The sad truth for most music lessons providers on Oahu is that students 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 Workshop is owned and operated by Landon Mattox who is also one of the teachers providing private lessons in Guitar, Ukulele and Bass. Our mission is to provide excellent teaching facilities to highly qualified and experienced teachers in a sustainable way where the teacher keeps the lion’s share of lessons fees, can earn a basic living and we all work together to share costs so that our instructors and therapists can focus on providing students and families with their best attention and quality lessons without having to worry about how they can make ends meet. This way, students can study with their favorite instructor for as long as they want without having a different instructor every few months or years. We feel that the instructors who are career lifelong professional musicians and teachers deserve that.
