I've known Matt for a long time and in addition to his extraordinary skills as a bass player, I've come to know him as a fantastic teacher. He has led many clinics at colleges around the country, taught privately to individual students, and attended one of the best universities in the country for jazz performance (UNT). That being said, he is so much more than a jazz bass player. He plays regularly with bands ranging from electro-pop to folk to salsa on electric bass and upright bass. He has one of the most creative musical minds I've ever had the pleasure of working with and is patient and compassionate both with his band members and students. I highly recommend Matt as your future bass teacher!

Kyle H. Nashville, TN

Upright bass is a very versatile instrument. It is used in classical, jazz, bluegrass, country, pop, funk... Just about every genre! It's amazing that such a historical instrument can have so many uses today.

About Kyle

Having been a musician his whole life, and a bassist since the time he was 15 years old, Kyle elected to attend Berklee College of Music on partial scholarship after graduating high school. This allowed him the opportunity to study with the likes of Whit Browne and Anthony Vitti. Summer breaks from school allowed Kyle to complete professional contracts as a working bass player, including playing in Hersheypark’s “Frontier Frenzy” (2010), Holland America Cruiseline’s “The Neptunes” (2011), and Boston’s “The Honeymooners” (2012). After graduating Berklee Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Music Education (December 2012), Kyle decided to move from his childhood home in Connecticut to Nashville, TN to further his career as a bassist and ...

Kyle is a great bass teacher. He always made sure that I understood the material and what I was supposed to practice during the week. I progressed more with Kyle than with either of my prior 2 teachers. He also always has a smile on his face! Take lessons from Kyle!

Kyle was great!

I just took my first guitar lesson with Kyle and he was awesome. Very patient, even when I got frustrated with myself. He taught me how to solo on the blues during my very first lesson and got me using a pick for the very first time. Kyle's lesson was engaging and enjoyable.
