Hi BBB,

From memory--you ended our lesson early. I offered you follow-up free lesson time and free suggestions via e-mail. I do not think I offered you paid lessons, as we didn't complete our first free lesson. My offer to pickup on our a free lesson(s) for you remains and I would appreciate a second chance to meet with you.

You are correct that you didn't like my advice--you took a few strokes at the table only, as you were uninterested in my pool advice. Normally the student does most of the shooting during my lessons and takes many shots during our hour together. When I've received lessons from others, I try what they suggest at the tables, while they watch.

Folks have nothing to lose via a free lesson except some free time. I'm happy to meet anyone in person or online for a free introductory billiards lesson (one hour).

Matt Sherman - pool instructor

Matt Sherman was a guest in one of my Gospel Trick Shot shows in Florida with Tommy Kennedy. Tommy did some of his amazing trick shots and ball juggling during the show. Matt did a short instructional clinic for the fans during his segment of the show and it was well received. Matt is a highly qualified instructor who has taught billiards on the college level and he is an excellent communicator. He has also written many billiard articles for many years for various publications. I highly recommend Matt for both group and individual instruction. Yours for pool, Steve Lillis www.gospeltrickshot.org

Matt's a good guy and a skilled writer/communicator.

I've worked with Matt on and off over the last 15 years. He's helped me work out some technical details. His communications skills are clear and concise - quickly responding to requests for granular information.

I recommend Matt as an instructor for the long-term. When table situations arise that are a bit puzzling, work with him to figure out the solutions (lots of these have more than one way of getting the job done).

When you work with him on lessons - make sure you have a very specific set of items you want to work with. AND, you had better put his recommendations on the table. Otherwise, you won't "own the shot".

There's a big difference between intellectual knowledge (however true or false) and the precision you develop when pushing balls on the practice table.
+++++++++++++++
And, by the way, here's a hard-learned tip: don't practice a shot up until you are successful once. Practice the shot until you are successful 4 out of 5 attempts (pros always work for 10 out of 10).

Good luck & shoot straight!

You still giving lessons on that 10 footer out back. I got an introductory lesson from you a few years back. I might come by for a couple lessons if you've got time.

Matt Sherman helped me a ton with problems like my aiming, vision, stance and answered any question, no matter how "amateur" the question itself was. He gave me my most immense boost in the basic learning phase. Now I know that I'm on the right track, thankfully for him.
