Matt Van Y - Guitarist. Teacher. Writer

Welcome to my site! Thanks for taking time out of your day and looking into what I do. I've been playing and teaching guitar full-time for 26 years now. In that time, I have had the privilege of teaching hundreds of students and performing more times than I can begin to count. While I cannot say that music is an easy career, it has been and continues to be extremely rewarding and fun!

Please feel free to check out the video I have posted above to hear a little more about my music and teaching business.

Check out WGO!  This is an outreach dedicated to the homeless and impoverished children of Honduras. My wife and I have traveled to Tegucigalpa twice and had the privilege of serving these children. I can tell you firsthand that it is an incredible ministry! Please consider sponsoring a child yourself.  It will change your life and theirs!


If you have a moment, take a listen to some of my students' songs on the playlist I've posted here.
