Matt was amazing! These lessons were a first for my 10 year old daughter, and Matt's style and demeanor were perfect! He's very knowledgeable, kind and patient - characteristics I was looking for in a vocal coach. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has a child with a passion for singing and wants to develop it.

Mathew is an awesome singing instructor. He is able to describe how you should sound vocally as well as describe what you should be feeling (physically) while you practice. He incorporates a variety of different exercises that help significantly to produce a great sound.

I've noticed that my voice has improved significantly over the last couple of months. The sound is clearer, more powerful, and my range has improved a lot.

I would highly recommend Matthew as your next singing instructor!

Matthew M.

Huntington Station, NY

About Matthew

My father, Al Miller, was a prominent drum teacher on Long Island who taught hundreds of people throughout his career. My musical background began in the early 70's. From the time I was five, I would go on almost every gig my father played and sit right behind his floor tom. I began sitting in as much as possible and played my first paying job at nine years old. He entered me in the drum corps where I learned a lot about playing with other drummers and also entered me in various drum competitions. I came in first place in the state for the Louie Bellson National Drum Contest when I was 11, but failed miserably when my sight reading was not good enough to get me to the next level. I worked real hard to get my reading up to par after that. I received full scholarships to Berklee ...

Met with Matthew at my home for my first lesson after an earlier phone chat to
discuss my background and goals.

Matthew is well spoken, motivated, friendly, and experienced in playing jazz, blues, and rock.

Lesson was a good sign of things to come. Matthew helped right away with a few tips on playing styles, kit setup, and hand grip to improve my speed and articulation.

Next few lessons will be addressing hand- foot independence and perhaps even a little jazz improve, or more advanced rock beats.

It was great to have a teacher like Matthew with both music education and field experience observe my playing and suggest improvements that work for max
effect! He's quite a drummer himself, and briefly sat on my set and illustrated a few concepts.

Exceptional Teacher

Often an accomplished musician might not make the best teacher. Matthew, however, is both an outstanding teacher and musician. The son of a well known drummer/teacher, Matt has clearly learned what it takes to be a successful teacher himself. Coupled with his personal accomplishments as a drummer, Matt has what it takes to teach drummers at any level...novice to expert. I really enjoy my lessons with Matt and know that if I stick with his instructions, I will reach my goals.

1st Lesson

My 1st lesson with Jason was very relaxed & professional. I learned more in 45 minutes than the last 5 months on my own in regards to reading music, rhythm, timing and playing the notes on the staff. He is very patient and knowledgeable. His diversity in music provides an understanding of where you are at and where you want to go with music. I look forward to my next lesson with Jason.

Jason knows the classical guitar.

I have been teaching myself for the past 1 1/2 year using an online course. Although it is a beginner course Jason has chosen to use the content of that course. He has been able to take the music and increase the skill level to an intermediate level. He has also introduce me to the modern guitar music that this course would not address. Lessons were so helpful I initially increased my sessions from 30 min. up to 45 and then up to the full hour.

Closer to home, you may have sung in a choir, or even attempted singing lessons, but became frustrated as you found that your voice didn’t match up to your expectations.

Learning to Read Music: An Introduction for Singers
Learning to read music can be a daunting task for beginner singers! Here, Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R. shows you how to get started...   Not to point out the obvious, but as singers, we don’t have keys on our instrument. We don’t have buttons that emit the same pitch every time they are pressed. Most of us don’t have perfect pitch, either. This makes learning to read music quite different for singers than for other musicians. Not only do singers deal with learning how
