Highly Recommended!

Matt's a great teacher. He's really good at articulating, and helping you visualize, the different things that are going on when you sing. In the past few months I've noticed a big change in how I look at, and approach, singing.

Really looking forward to continued growth with this teacher!! Highly recommend him!

Amazing Learning Experience

I've had lessons for many different instruments and different teachers in the past. I would say Matthew is the most patient and thorough teacher I've had. Being a beginner at drums, we heavily focused on good technique and are gradually moving forward as I learn everything 100%. I feel very confident that as I continue taking lessons with Matthew I will be a pro. He gives me the right tools so I can go home and practice what we learned in the lessons and I feel myself getting better and better every week. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience, Matthew is very professional and has great energy!

Matthew is so kind and patient.

My 6 year old son, Dimitri, has Matthew as a singing instructor. Matthew is so patient and funny. Dimitri feels so comfortable at every session. It feels great to know that my son is with such a talented instructor.
