About Me

Heralded as "œa smart, tasteful, and genuine singer" and "a consummate multi-instrumentalist," Matthew continues to perform and broaden his range of musical experiences through diverse engagement in both the classical and non-conventional realms. Matthew has had the great privilege of performing around the world and working with some of today's brightest and most acclaimed singers, ensembles, and conductors such as Leon Botstein, Dale Duesing, Karen Brunssen, James Hall, Warren Jones, Phyllis Hoffman, Pro Arte, Canticum Scholare, and VOCES8.

As an educator, Matthew's 10+ years of teaching experience in voice and drums has brought him to work with young musicians of all ages and skill types. Matthew's approach is technique driven, while at the same time, expressive, musically sensitive, and fun! Matthew's voice students will learn English and foreign language diction, ear training and sight-singing, proper posture, stage presence, confidence, and healthy vocal production suitable for all styles of singing. Drum students will learn the importance of snare drum rudiments, how to read drum charts, the nuances of various styles, as well as, develop dexterity and increase muscular function and independence. Matthew currently teaches at Wyoming Seminary Institute in Wilkes-Barre, PA during the Summer and is an Adjunct Professor of Music and Composition at Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, CT.

*** Lesson Details ***
Being a musician is exciting, challenging, and of course, rewarding. Musicians are communicators; instruments of expression. I'm a firm believer in diligent practice habits and learning the fundamentals of one's craft. From there, the music can happen.

I offer a relaxed, comfortable learning environment that is both fun and productive. A stuffy, tense atmosphere promotes timidness, and insecurity, the opposite of the environment I foster in my studio.

Whether you're a beginner with a passion, or a professional looking to fine tune your proficiency, I can help you get to where you want to be. Diligent, concise, uncomplicated, and fun! That's how I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Various keyboards, full 5 piece drum set, full production and recording facility, music scores/sheet music

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained vocalist, but can teach all styles and genres of voice. Recording engineer & producer. Versed in many styles of composition. Session drummer.

Chris J. Wilton, CT

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Theory, Percussion

About Me

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, and I am currently in classes towards my Masters of Music Education. With over 10 years of private teaching under my belt, I'm prepared to teach students of all kinds and ages.

At my studio I have 2 drum sets set up for teacher and student, headphones for play along, a library of books and music, and recording capabilities. I have an electric bass that I like to use to play along with students to give them the feel of playing with another non-drummer musician.

Students can learn their favorite music, or get help with music for school or other ensembles they're a part of.

I absolutely do NOT favor one style over the other. I simply teach music and approach it all with the same level of passion. Rock, jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban, rudimental snare, metal... it's all good with me.

Some previous students have gone on to pass college auditions and study music. ALL previous students have had a great time learning music in a fun environment with a caring, passionate, and knowledgeable teacher.

I have been teaching both percussion and electric bass lessons for the past several years.
