About Me

Heralded as "œa smart, tasteful, and genuine singer" and "a consummate multi-instrumentalist," Matthew continues to perform and broaden his range of musical experiences through diverse engagement in both the classical and non-conventional realms. Matthew has had the great privilege of performing around the world and working with some of today's brightest and most acclaimed singers, ensembles, and conductors such as Leon Botstein, Dale Duesing, Karen Brunssen, James Hall, Warren Jones, Phyllis Hoffman, Pro Arte, Canticum Scholare, and VOCES8.

As an educator, Matthew's 10+ years of teaching experience in voice and drums has brought him to work with young musicians of all ages and skill types. Matthew's approach is technique driven, while at the same time, expressive, musically sensitive, and fun! Matthew's voice students will learn English and foreign language diction, ear training and sight-singing, proper posture, stage presence, confidence, and healthy vocal production suitable for all styles of singing. Drum students will learn the importance of snare drum rudiments, how to read drum charts, the nuances of various styles, as well as, develop dexterity and increase muscular function and independence. Matthew currently teaches at Wyoming Seminary Institute in Wilkes-Barre, PA during the Summer and is an Adjunct Professor of Music and Composition at Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, CT.

*** Lesson Details ***
Being a musician is exciting, challenging, and of course, rewarding. Musicians are communicators; instruments of expression. I'm a firm believer in diligent practice habits and learning the fundamentals of one's craft. From there, the music can happen.

I offer a relaxed, comfortable learning environment that is both fun and productive. A stuffy, tense atmosphere promotes timidness, and insecurity, the opposite of the environment I foster in my studio.

Whether you're a beginner with a passion, or a professional looking to fine tune your proficiency, I can help you get to where you want to be. Diligent, concise, uncomplicated, and fun! That's how I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Various keyboards, full 5 piece drum set, full production and recording facility, music scores/sheet music

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained vocalist, but can teach all styles and genres of voice. Recording engineer & producer. Versed in many styles of composition. Session drummer.

About Me

Hello all. I have been teaching for about 10 years now. I have degrees from two universities, one for jazz performance and one for classical performance. I have played in multiple bands throughout my life ranging in styles from punk rock all the way to straight ahead jazz. If you choose me for lessons, we will work on developing your musical vocabulary, learning to read music, hand exercises, chordal structures, scales, tablature and so much more. I have a love for music like none other and a passion to share that with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson with me would start with some warm-up exercises. I then like to move on to any book material you may have had for that week. We will also work on chords and scales to use accordingly with any songs you're learning. Often we'll work on a popular song that you may want to learn. Also for the intermediate to advanced student there may be some music theory and aural skills training. Overall I tailor the lesson to the individual. I am thorough in my techniques. I also possess a great patience and will work with you on whatever you may be having trouble with until you and I both feel comfortable. You can expect rapid development with me. I promise I'll have you playing well in a short time.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide guitar, pencil, tuner, manuscript paper, etc. They need an instrument, music stand, tuner, metronome, book.

*** Specialties ***
I am well versed in ear training, music notation, tablature, and chord recognition. I have taught all age groups and all styles of music and feel confident in my ability to relate well to any material.

About Me

Hey all,

My name is Sam W. I've been teaching private music lessons for nearly 10 years, and have enjoyed meeting new students and helping them discover their love of music.
I've recently received my Masters of Music in Scoring for Film and Multimedia at NYU Steinhardt. Outside of giving lessons, I also compose music professionally for use in film, TV and the web.

I specialize in teaching guitar, piano and drumkit, as well as music theory/composition and audio recording techniques and software.

I look forward to helping you along on your musical journey!

About Me

Having studied with some fantastic teachers has been a true joy. I did also hone my craft whereby I sought a voice coach,a very different thing altogether. They do the fine tuning and every so often I do to this day go to a wonderful coach in NYC. I would also like to mention that quite earlier on I did study under the tutelage of Helen Yorke. She was a concert pianist for the renowned soprano Renee Fleming. How I discovered Helen I can't recall. By my early thirties I had derived incredible amounts of vocal knowledge. Performing on stage is like nothing else I have ever done before and it helped enormously to create desperately needed exposure...High school launched me into music performance where I immersed myself in all kinds of special choirs contingent upon a rigorous audition. NYSSMA was the organization which funded these extra-curricular choirs. Finally the spark was ignited. As I mentioned I have had the fortune to have studied under the so called creme de la creme when it came to voice teachers. All were situated on the west side of Manhattan. There is a veritable mecca of voice teachers and coaches all clustered in that particular area...that is just the way it was and still is today. Anyway, I was also lucky to have had the privilege of studying amongst opera instructors on the roster of the Juilliaird faculty as well; in essence a culmination of the mediocre to the exceptional.. Despite it all I learned and I developed what I believe to be a flawless technique which to this day allows me the ability to avail all other emotions that must come into play for an effective result. I have performed in NYC at an outdoor bandshell; a part of Central Park known as Damrosche Park; coincidentally also a stones throw away from Lincoln Center as well as other regional opera companies.

> Now a bit about me. I have had an extensive teaching background in voice instruction. I teach all genres of music whether it be opera, rock, pop, country, off-Broadway, Broadway or cabaret If someone just wants to sing solely for fun as a hobby or even go pro eventually with enormous patience and diligence they just might make the cut. Dreams can come true. All I ask is whatever you love to sing please bring the music the day of your first lesson. I can let you know what to expect when it comes to the competition as I have performed on the operatic stage and I will prepare you to audition with confidence and conviction. Once you develop your "own" technique the rest is easy, you'll see as we go along. I look forward to meeting you very soon. Thank you.

*** Specialties ***
My true specialty is and has always been opera. I say that because I have been given a very fundamental technique which carries me a long way. I have been teaching for over fifteen years and am confident and show expertise in the way in which I approach each student as an individual. Some students show more promise than some other might, initially however this does not mean that he or she can't learn. I teach you, the student never to give up on themselves. Since I have performed I show them what to expect and to compete with no-one but themselves.

About Me

I have studied voice for over 25 years and I have studied voice in both New York City and Paris, France. One of my teachers was the vocal coach of Renee Fleming and currently works with Denyce Graves. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and I am almost finished with my Masters Degree.

I believe that students should be taught in a positive and supportive atmosphere. I want my students to grow in confidence as well as musical and vocal skills. Everyone learns at their own pace and everyone has their own style of learning. I as your teacher will work with your style of learning and pace lessons so that they are both exciting and challenging but not so complicated that you will become frustrated. Everyone has a unique singing voice and I want to help you make that singing voice come alive.
