I've appeared on records with dozens of NYC area rock and pop bands, and perform as a classical and jazz trombonist in all five boroughs and New Jersey.
I listen to and play all kinds of music from Beethoven to Stravinsky, Arcade Fire to Beyonce, James Brown to Snoop Dogg/Lion. I have had the pleasure to share the stage with rockers Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), and jazz greats Maynard Ferguson, Jimmie Lunceford, Conrad Herwig, "Blue" Lou Marini, and Jeff Coffin (Flecktones).
I've played acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, trombone, tuba, French horn, violin, cello, and string bass in virtually all different styles. Some of my favorite recent projects have been:
-Quilty (Pavement-style hard rock band)
-The Nevermind Orchestra (brass band that covers Nirvana tunes; I play trombone)
-Chill Sons (my own band for which I write songs, play guitar, and sing)
-Manhattan Symphonie (an entertaining symphony orchestra featuring soloists on piano, violin, saw, urdu, and tap shoes)
I received a BM in trombone from University of North Texas, an MM in brass pedagogy from Ohio University, and am currently a DMA student in bass trombone at Rutgers University.
It is a treat to share music with others, and my lessons are fun, challenging, and engaging.
Thanks for stopping by to look at my profile! Let's hang out and do music things.
Piano, Music Theory
I'm a friendly, patient, enthusiastic, experienced teacher, joyfully instructing piano professionally since 1999. Music transcends words, and I have a deep understanding of music/ piano, both personal/ experiential, and technical/ academic which I truly enjoy sharing with my students.
A classically-trained pianist, Master of Arts in music theory and composition, I've been taking piano lessons since age 6 and playing "by ear" from early childhood. I continued to study piano throughout elementary school, high school, and college where I studied piano, music history and theory, music therapy, and psychology. In graduate school, I studied piano and music theory under David Holzman, world-renowned Grammy-nominated pianist and lecturer. I draw from my love of music, piano and my own vast experience as a pianist, piano student, and piano teacher to motivate and inspire my students.
I am currently a full-time piano teacher instructing Pre-K through 7 at an elementary school in addition to to private lessons in my home studio.
Singing, Broadway Singing, Music Theory, Opera Voice
I am fun, friendly, and outgoing, and I love to teach.
I have been making music since I first picked up a recorder in the 4th grade. Over the years, I've played flute, trumpet, and piano, and sung in choirs, cabarets, musicals, and operas. I recently received my Masters in Music (Vocal Performance) from New Jersey City University where I studied classical voice. Although I am trained classically, I love performing all genres of music, including Broadway, folk songs, spirituals, and jazz. In fact, my Masters thesis explores the convergence of opera and musical theater – these two genres have more in common than you might think!
Sharing music with others is a passion of mine, whether it be through performing or teaching. I firmly believe that anyone can sing! I work with all types of students, both beginners and more advanced singers, from young to old. Voice lessons should be both challenging and fun – in our lessons, we’ll work on developing a healthy singing technique … while exploring some great song literature.
I’m currently singing with a variety of professional choirs in the tri-state area, mostly performing sacred music; I sing with the First United Methodist Church in Stamford where I lead the alto section and perform occasional solos; I chant the evening compline service at the Christ Church in Greenwich, and I also sub for a number of local churches. I am also performing in the community theater production of Oklahoma! at Curtain Call in Stamford, which opens at the end of March. I’m also putting together a cabaret performance with two other singers, where we will perform a number of solos, duets and trios from classical and musical theater genres.
Thanks for stopping by, and keep singing!
Clarinet, Flute, Music Recording, Music Theory, Saxophone
Matt, 36 years old, has enjoyed working and teaching as a professional musician for at least 15 years. He began studying music and playing the saxophone at age 11. He currently lives and works in the New York City area after moving there from Philadelphia in early 2001, after graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 1999 with a Bachelors in Music.
Throughout his musical career, Matt has performed and worked in a variety of capacities including as a composer and recording studio engineer. His main area of expertise is performing as a jazz saxophonist on alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones, and he regularly plays throughout New York City in restaurants and jazz clubs.
Matt's area of expertise in teaching is beginner to advanced studies on the saxophone, beginner to intermediate studies on the flute and the clarinet, music theory, and jazz improvisation for any instrument. Whether he is teaching saxophone, flute, or clarinet, his teaching approach places emphasis on giving the student an in depth understanding of his or her instrument. He puts the utmost importance on explaining advanced concepts in the simplest of terms in order to insure that the student fully comprehends the objectives of each lesson. Such concepts that he covers regularly and places importance on are sight-reading, ear-training, and creativity.
As a regularly performing musician in New York City, Matt can be seen every Sunday night from 7 pm to 10 pm at Ba'sik (a new and very popular bar in Williamsburg Brooklyn, just off of the Graham ave stop on the L train) where he leads the open jazz jam session. A few of his adult students have even been able to reach a level in jazz improvisation that they've been able to come out and sit in with the band.
In addition to teaching woodwind instruments and jazz improvisation, Matt also has experience teaching Sibelius music writing software, and audio engineering with Pro-tools LE and Logic Pro.
PLEASE NOTE: Because the NYC area is very different geographically from other parts of the country, especially in terms of transportation, I may appear outside of your area in terms of where I am available to travel. If you are very interested in taking lessons with me, but you are outside of my travel zone, please feel free to follow up with a Takelessons counselor and have them contact me personally to see if we might make an exception. I am available to travel to virtually all areas of Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan as well as Jersey City and Hoboken. if my location in Williamsburg Brooklyn is not convenient for you, and you are unable to have lessons in your home, then there is also an option where I can most likely find a very affordable teaching studio in an area that is more convenient for you that we may rent by the hour and split the cost for your lesson.
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory
I began studying piano and music theory when I was 5. My father was an accomplished musician (classical and folklore) who played great role in my accomplishment as a pianist and teacher
While studying in Music College, I took part in various festivals and competitions. I performed several piano concertos with symphonic orchestra. Some of them are: Mozart Piano Concerto No 20 in D minor, Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor, Schumann Piano Concerto in A minor Op 54 pt. Parallel with my studies in College I gave piano lessons in classical music. I accomplished my studies with honors.
I traveled and taught music in different countries: United Kingdom, Central and Eastern Europe which helped me gain great experience how to teach students with different background
I got my MA from the Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA). My studies were focused on education administration and management. This helped me manage class in most efficient and effective way , plan lessons and develop curricula.
I would eagerly take students from all age groups and backgrounds and involve them in the most exciting process of self accomplishment.
