My Background in Music:
My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work.
I studied and played guitar and autoharp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school.
When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and John Sayer.
When I was a little older I started studying at the Community Music School at Capital University in Columbus Ohio. I studied with Joan Hall Huet and enjoyed her style and training as well as Steve Caricciola out of Capitol who played organ and taught me composition. Those are only two of the wonderful teachers with whom I trained.
As I was studying, there came an opportunity for me to study and work with the founding member of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. He was Mr. Robert Buchsbaum of Coronet Recording Studio. I came into his studio to make a demo tape and he offered me a job.
He was a fantastic engineer as well as the finest of oboists. We talked music for nine years together. He changed my life in so many countless ways that it would take a book to explain what was brought to me musically at that time.
I continued to play as well as help in the studio wherever and whenever I was needed. I recorded and wrote many original pieces and became copyrighted as well as a member of BMI and ASCAP.
I won the USO talent show in 1985 and was offered the possibility of travel, but I chose to stay in Columbus. I was very blessed to have met and worked with many of the finest professors in the country as they were a part of our Artist-In-Residence Series in the studio.
People such as Rosemary Platt, a professor of Ohio State University, Paul Droste, TBDBITL and retired OSU marching band director. I came to Florida in 2001 and have expanded my musical adventures. I continue to play musically with a few local musicians and write music. I plan to continue to be an active force in the music field as well as teach other people how to be fine musicians.
I have been involved within the music industry for many years. My credits include working almost ten years in a classical recording studio of high reputation. I have trained with many fine teachers and have grown to love the music field more and more. My goal is to expand your knowledge into a lifetime love for the music field and not to frustrate you with seemingly impossible tasks.
Children and Adults:
I love children and have worked many years with all age groups as well as with adults. I have the patience and good disposition necessary to help you enjoy the musical experience.
The methods that I use while on a steady course with an accredited system will also include learning how to enjoy music, write music and read music. I have people who are devoted to music and who will have it in their lives always because of my guidance.
A Personal Note
My skills include many years of teaching and helping students become stronger and better equipped to face the best future that they can possibly reach. I have devoted my life to teaching people to read, study, write and perform well.
I have researched the many students that I have trained and I have developed quick and efficient ways to reach needed goals. I have tutored children in reading, writing and comprehension skills as well as contest preparation and test taking.
I have also been involved in many public speaking and performance opportunities. When I was a young child I had the privilege of training in phonics and in eighth grade was reading at a college level.
When my family moved to another community while I was in the ninth grade I was placed in twelfth grade classes and while I did not have the emotional maturity I did have the intellectual ability. I have been concentrating on teaching music for the last few years and have also addressed a need in raising the skill levels in other subjects.
I have also spent time teaching children to prepare for tests. That led me into training others how to develop study skills to help them in lifelong pursuits. I am a writer and love to use stories with a good solid moral point.
I have devoted myself to helping children and young people as well as adults and have many references and connections to my community. I have been published in syndicated newspapers and am currently a member of the American College of Musicians.
I have been listed in various Who's Who Publications such as Who's Who for Entrepreneurs and have even been listed in European publications. I believe that I have changed lives for the better and this gives me a strong drive and purpose to equip and strengthen others.

Cheers. My name is Matthew. It's a pleasure to meet you. I play guitar, bass, drums and percussion all on a professional, weekly-gigging level. I would describe my style as motivating, tactful, patient, and both traditional and up-to-date / modern. I teach all styles, but I most enjoy transitioning North American rock musicians into the world of jazz, and especially SALSA / Latin, believe it or not! I have a Bachelors in Psychology (University of Central Florida), have toured Japan with my band, and I also release solo music. I have recorded in famous Tokyo studios and actually ended up living in the Land of the Rising Sun for 4 years! I am Spanish, Japanese, and Portuguese speaking as well (English as my native language), having visited Colombia, Bali (Indonesia), Hong Kong, Japan, and more. I would love to teach you!
