Matthew S. Levittown, PA

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university. I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine. *** Lesson Details *** For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my ...

I have been having a great experience with Matt as a teacher. I have been taking lessons with him online for a little while now, and have been very much enjoying it. I have played the piano for a number of year, and when I was younger was not much of a theory student. I can say that I have learned a -ton- of theory already with Matt, which I really enjoy!

About Michael

Michael C. was eleven years old when he began to play the electric bass guitar. He decided to get an electric bass because it was the one instrument needed to start a band among his friends. In addition to playing the electric bass, Michael enjoyed time practicing on the guitar and piano in high school. Transferring the knowledge and finger technique to the guitar came easy because of the similarities between guitar and the bass. And growing up with an upright piano in the house always lead to tinkering and eventually became a proficiency after college. In 1996 Michael enrolled at the the Philadelphia University of the Arts. He was awarded a presidential merit scholarship and a university grant based on his entrance audition. During his studies Michael was recruited for a student ...

Original Gift Idea

I purchased 5 lessons from Michael as a Christmas gift for my wife. It was a fantastic idea- she loves her lessons! Michael is a very skilled teacher and I have already noticed improvements in my wife's playing.

I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking for a music teacher.

As well as teaching, I have had a lot of experience aiding and tutoring my fellow bas majors in college. Hand technique on upright is important as well as getting a good ear. I plan to focus on these aspects while incorporating tunes and pieces according to the students style and ability.

About Mark

I am a soon to be graduate of Rowan University, studying bass with a Jazz Studies degree. I have been playing and studying music for 16 years starting with piano at the age of 8. In the 4th grade I picked up clarinet for the school band and played that until graduating from high school. When I was 12 I switched from piano to electric bass and have been playing it ever since in various styles from rock to jazz to classical and so on. After graduating high school I started learning upright bass in college. I started teaching friends various instruments and general music theory as a freshman. After performing my senior recital at Rowan University I will officially be done with schooling and devote myself fully into playing and teaching music. I like to take an individualistic approach to ...
