I'll bring the beautiful sound of the classical guitar to your venue. Your guests will enjoy a range of Classical, Spanish, and Latin American guitar favorites. I have a small portable sound system to ensure the best sound for both intimate and large spaces. Perfect for restaurants, weddings, art galleries, dinner parties, or any event!
Devin played for our wedding including Ava Maria at my wife’s request in memory of her parents. She was very professional in the entire process, asking for our thoughts and providing suggestions for parts of the service we had not considered. Afterwards, some of our guests said they had never thought a guitar could be used to play music for a wedding she played so well.
If you live in the Billings area and have a need for a classic musician, even for an event you would not think could be done on guitar, you should contact her. We are so glad we did.
Response from Devin Matthews- Classical Guitarist:
Thank you for the kind words, Rosemary! It was a pleasure playing at your wedding.

What to Expect
-I play a varied repertoire of traditional classical guitar favorites spanning from the Baroque period to the present day. Pieces by Bach, Tarrega, Chopin, Barrios, and many others provide plenty of music to choose from for any type of event.
-Classical guitar is well suited for background music as well as concert settings. With an excellent sound system, I can tailor the sound of my guitar to suit your space even in a large or loud room.
-Great for small, intimate settings. With my small setup, I won't take up much space. The sound of the guitar is excellent for soft background music as well.
-As a soloist, I can provide top-notch music for your venue or event at a fraction of the price it would cost to hire a whole band or string quartet.
Weddings may include:
- 30 minutes of pre-service music
- Processional for bridal party
- Bride's procession
- a special musical selection during the service, as needed
- Up to 10 minutes of post-service music as guests exit
The musical selection for wedding receptions and casual events is elegant and beautiful music that your guests will enjoy hearing in the background during your event.
Extra charges for: Travel outside of 40 mile radius extra, certain special music due to extra time or cost to acquire, attendance at rehearsal)
For events other than a wedding ceremony, I will take a 10-15 minute break after every 45 minutes to 1 hour of music.
