Welcome to Silesia Guitars, the guitar repair shop in Shoreline that is dedicated to taking good care of your dear friend, the guitar. We are located in Shoreline, just 15 min north of downtown Seattle. Our work consists of repairs of anything from broken headstocks and cracked guitar tops, through replacing/installing electronics and custom inlays. Just need a set up or a string change? No problem! We try to accommodate any needs, big or small. Usually, the cheaper the guitar, the more it would benefit from being professionally set up. Evaluations are free, so stop by with your guitar today and let's talk about how we can help you get the most out of it!

We also offer guitar/bass lessons for all levels and ages. Ask us about our teachers, they are eager to share their skills.

Guitar Lessons

Seattle Guitar Instructor Charlie Shaughnessy

 

Matt Williams has been teaching guitar for 11 years and has been playing and performing for 15 years. Matt earned his Bachelors in Music at Cornish College of the Arts, and has played in various venues across the Pacific Northwest in styles ranging from Rock and Blues to Jazz, Funk, and Latin.

From Matt:

My teaching style promotes self-learning with structured guidance along the way. I like to help students reach whatever goal they are trying to obtain while inspiring them to enjoy the work they are putting into their instrument.

My curriculum is focused on the students' goals and what they want to play while introducing things that I feel would be beneficial to them.

Regardless of a student's age, I tailor the first lesson around their level of experience. Beginner students will learn about the parts of the guitar, how to read tablature notation and chord diagrams, and learn a few short songs and chords. Experienced students will discuss their current experience level and goals, and I will find materials that will help them progress, as well as introduce them to new concepts and techniques that I think will be of benefit.

My knowledge and experience from being a full time working musician lets me bring a unique experience to teaching guitar, as well as having amazing music teachers to learn from my whole musical life.
