Hailing from a small town in southern Oregon, Matt Krein picked up the guitar at age 12 instantly felt a spark. He went on to earn a Bachelors of Music Performance from the University of Oregon under the direction of fingerstyle guitarist Don Latarski, played hundreds of performances, became a songwriter, and has shared his talents with dozens of students. Matt currently lives in Portland, Oregon and teaches locally as well as online.
