Having an experienced and knowledgeable instructor is important for improving at any instrument! I am trained with two degrees from Berklee College of Music, in performance and film composing--where I studied with some of the best musical minds alive--and have been distinguished with several notable awards, on a national and international level.
The knowledge I've been able to glean over the years, from advanced piano voicings, to saxophone techniques, to writing for orchestra, spans over many different facets of music, and whatever you'd like to get out of your music lessons, I can give that to you!

Wisconsin cultured in 1983, I was born to a family of teachers and artists. In 1989, I started the Suzuki piano method, which I continued until 2001. As well, I sang high tenor in a barbershop choir, played organ and piano at my Catholic church and was interested in stage acting and musical theatre. But In 1996, my obsession with woodwinds was sparked by discovering my dad's alto saxophone. In 2001, I graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy in jazz saxophone and piano performance. I then went on to graduate Western Michigan University(BM,‘05) and the New England Conservatory(MM,‘08) for degrees in Jazz Studies.
I currently live in Astoria, NY (Queens), and have a conveniently located studio space available for lessons. I've been active as a performing and recording musician in NYC since 2008, and am enjoying learning more and more about music production. Instrumentally, I enjoy performing and recording on a plethora of instruments: saxophones, clarinets, flutes, piano and keyboards, and vocals. I am a member of several active bands in the jazz and indi-rock scenes: Dapp Theory, Zodiac Ensemble, and my own band, Education Reform.
I've performed at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival in NYC, the Toronto Jazz Festival, Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Oslo Jazz Festival, Chelsea Music Festival ('12), and the Beantown, San Francisco and Halifax Jazz Festivals. I've performed at the Chopin Festival in Luxembourg and and the Festival de la Medina in Tunisia. In my spare time, I like to learn new recipes and practice yoga.

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 7pm to 10pm 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.
