ABOUT EGW

Welcome - so glad you stopped by! My name is Matt Ackerman, and I want to keep you rockin' in the free world. 

The quick and dirty: I've been a guitarist since age 14, been working on my gear since I was 16, and playing professionally since I was 18. Like many, for a time I set set the professional aspect aside and focused on the things people told me I should care about. And in 2020 I woke up an declared enough was enough. Life is short and this is my passion. 

 

Endorian Guitarworks exists to motivate and guide passionate musicians of all levels.

By combining superior equipment service, expert knowledge, and an inclusive community, Endorian Guitarworks supports your self-development process as you learn new skills, expand your comfort zone, and start gaining confidence to depend on and trust yourself.

SKILL

SHIFT - EGW Backstage

Musicianship can be lonely. 

 

It’s easy to lose inspiration, plateau, and become blind to opportunities. We get trapped in the stories we tell ourselves, and in the process start to believe doing it by the book is the only way that works. But doing it by the book is overrated. Claim responsibility for your progress, learn new skills, improve your craft, and get expert support so that you’re empowered to write your own book.

EGW is tearing up the old playbook and taking part of the musical journey in a new direction - creating an opportunity for musicians to network, collaborate, share, learn, and grow together through an exclusive online community and live weekly calls.
