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.
Singing, Speaking Voice
In 1998, upon college graduation, I began teaching private vocal lessons. I have taught for two schools of music, First United Methodist Music School in Texarkana, Arkansas and Burbank Music Academy in Burbank, California. In 2007, I began offering vocal lessons online through Skype. My current home studio is located in Manhattan.
I have the honor of working with some amazing students in my studio including, American Idol finalist;Rachel Hale, Singer/Song writer, Sara Skinner: Actress Molly Quinn; Actor, John R Colley; Ark-La-Tex’s country star Klancy Johnson; singer/actress;Tara Clem and many more.
I am dedicated to helping people explore their vocal talents and skills in the entertainment field. My focus centers on treating your entire body - not only your voice - as a tool for performance. This not only includes lessons for voice (speaking & singing) but career and life coaching.In performance often your body will want to work against itself. Your body become tense, you over think, and worry. My motivation is to help you move to a place where you can over come your insecurities and fears by giving you an understanding of vocal production and its connection to your body and mind. My desire is to lead you to being your best.
Here are some examples of how I can help: increasing vocal range, eliminating "breaks" in your range, supported sound, natural breathing techniques, body alignment, conquering performance anxiety, stage presence, song interpretation, college preparation, smart goal setting, increased creativity, and positive internal reprogramming.
I've been a member of the National Association of Teacher's of singing for 6 years and am also a member of Actors Equity, SAG-AFTRA, NARAS (the Grammy's) and a lifetime member for the music fraternity Sigma Alpha Iota. I hold 2 Fine Arts degrees in Music and Drama as well as a Bachelor of Applied Arts; Sciences in Administrative Leadership with an emphasis in Psychology.
