Highly Recommended!

Matt's a great teacher. He's really good at articulating, and helping you visualize, the different things that are going on when you sing. In the past few months I've noticed a big change in how I look at, and approach, singing.

Really looking forward to continued growth with this teacher!! Highly recommend him!

Amazing Learning Experience

I've had lessons for many different instruments and different teachers in the past. I would say Matthew is the most patient and thorough teacher I've had. Being a beginner at drums, we heavily focused on good technique and are gradually moving forward as I learn everything 100%. I feel very confident that as I continue taking lessons with Matthew I will be a pro. He gives me the right tools so I can go home and practice what we learned in the lessons and I feel myself getting better and better every week. Overall, I have really enjoyed my experience, Matthew is very professional and has great energy!

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.

Kyle is a wonderful voice teacher! He is extremely talented himself and is skilled at identifying what a student needs to work on/improve and how to do so. Often he uses fun, effective vocal/physical exercises (doing them alongside you so that you don't feel silly) to overcome whatever issue may be in the way and teach our body to produce the vocal sound it was made to produce. You will come away from lessons with Kyle stronger and more confident as a vocalist. Furthermore, he's just fun to work with -- extremely personable, friendly, and funny. Don't miss out on lessons with him!

About four years ago, following the death of my wife of 47 years, I decided to take voice lessons with the young woman who directed the church choir in which I sang. My decision to do this was based on a desire to become a better choir member, and, more importantly, I saw it as an additional way to manage the grief I felt following the death of my spouse. The young woman I chose turned out to be extremely proficient technically, kind and very important for a man in his 70s, patient. After a year, I was disappointed to learn that my instructor would move to New York City with her husband. Where will I ever find someone as suited for me as she was? I asked myself. She answered the question for me by referring me to Kyle. After my first lesson it was apparent that he was every bit as kind, technically excellent and patient as the teacher I had lost.

Typically a lesson with Kyle began with some stretching exercises, followed by breathing practice,singing notes, and then singing selected pieces. Although Kyle's training and performance is in classical music, he was able to help me with church music and other songs. Best of all, occasionally, after one of our lessons, he and I would go out for appetizers and a glass of wine. This provided not only an opportunity to review what we had covered in the lesson, but also to become better acquainted with each other. Which in turn helped him to be better able to understand some of the issues I faced and to help me overcome them through music. It was quite unusual, I thought, for someone as young as he to be willing and able to mentor me in that fashion.

Although I was saddened when Kyle left for Yale, I continue to feel blessed that Divine Providence brought him into my life just when I needed him, and I lend unconditional support for him as a music teacher.
