About Matthew

I have been teaching piano, singing, and music theory/composition professionally to children and adults for over 15 years. I offer in-home or in-studio lessons to students of all levels. Instruction will start with an evaluation of the student's current abilities and a custom-tailored plan to achieve the student's goals, such as: - Playing Chords and Melodies - Reading Sheet Music Effectively - Learning Music Theory and Composition - Learning Performance Techniques *** Lesson Details *** I believe in making sure the student is comfortable and confident in the learning process. The learning musician must often be told what they are doing wrong, so a counterbalance is needed for all that negativity! Your learning environment will be open, non-threatening, and encouraging, so

Matt's been superb with my twins

My sons, now 15, have been taking piano lessons and music theory from Matt for about three years now.

Can't say enough good things about the experience. Matt is patient, thorough, flexible about days and times when needed, and from top to bottom comes across as an all-around great guy.

Gave four bars on teaching environment only because the lessons are at our house, and the rest of us aren't always quiet when Matt's teaching -- but of course that's not his fault, and he handles our disruptions with kindness and understanding!

One last cool thing about him is his contagious passion for music, not just as a teacher but as a performer, singer, and composer as well.

Highly recommended.

Learned a lot, and had fun!

Matt is very knowledgeable in music theory, piano and voice. He is very patient, explains complex music practices well, gives appropriate feedback, and lessons to help the student grow. He is reliable, flexible with a students schedule, and available on short notice. I look forward to many more lessons with Matt. Thank you.

Progressed so quickly!

Matt is just a great teacher. He focuses on getting the basics down, which is absolutely necessary but he has me playing fun music as well. I am very happy with my progress. I am an adult and my family is also very impressed with how well I can play and how I progressed every few months to new levels of playing ability.

Matt is also very pleasant and dependable making lessons a pleasure.

I also have taken some singing lessons from him. I like that he can teach both diciplines.

A talented musician and teacher, who is genuinely responsive to his students' needs.

My son took piano lessons from Jon at a time when he wanted to experiment with different types of musical expression. Jon was extremely responsive to his needs, and worked with him on everything from improvisation, to jazz licks to a Brahms ballade. Jon understands that teaching music is not a "one-size-fits-all" endeavor, and draws on his wide range of musical experience to tailor a program that's right for your child. He is an extremely talented musician and a dedicated, caring teacher.

Jon is superb

My stepson took drum lessons with Jon for at least three years. I was impressed with my kid's progress on his drum set. Jon is so passionate about music, and I could see my son really connect to Jon easily. Jon was very available to discuss schedule changes and is a very nice down to earth guy. I highly recommend him.

Amazing teacher and all around phenomenal artist!

I took lessons from Jon for over 8 years, twice a week, including Jazz/Blues piano, voice, theory, and even drums. Let me first say that Jon is an all-around amazing artist that can master many instrument or genre of music. Taking lessons with him was something I looked forward to every week. He was an expert in all things jazz and blues, and really explained the theory and techniques well. I learned so much from him over those years that I can never repay. Unfortunately, he moved away to Cali, and I have not yet found a replacement that even comes close. I highly recommend Jon for music lessons in any instrument.
Donato M. Los Angeles, CA

About Donato

It's a common misconception people have that when they take music lessons, they will end up with an awkward teacher who spends more time showing off than teaching them anything. This is actually true, but that's where I stand out. In addition to being an excellent instructor with 10 years experience at professional music schools, I am relevant. I keep up with new music, so you are guaranteed to learn more songs than Stairway to Heaven. I play in local bands, music is my life, and I love teaching it to anyone with the desire to learn. *** Lesson Details *** While I teach guitar, drums, piano, and bass, from beginner to professional levels, and I have tons of experience in songwriting, recording, social media, Protools, Logic, and Garageband, guitar is my forté.

Excellent teacher for all ages!

Not every talented musician can be a good teacher. Donato is both. He is a professional musician who has a deep understanding of his instrument, music theory and songwriting. He is also an encouraging teacher who listens and connects well with his students and makes learning fun--playing music should be!

I started taking acoustic guitar lessons with Donato just before I turned 40--it was something I always wanted to do. With no previous experience, I knew it would be a challenge, but he proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks! I told him I wanted to play music that I love and can sing along to, and that is what he taught me to do.

Donato always adapted to my ability level, personal goals and preferred style of music. His encouragement gave me the confidence to learn something new and even play in front of friends and family. Childhood piano teachers instilled a sense of perfectionism which inevitably led to feelings of failure. Conversely, Donato helped me find the fun in making music, playing through mistakes in stride and singing aloud with joy. What a gift!

I highly recommend Donato for students of any age and any level. He has the experience and talent to hone the skills of advanced students and the adaptability and patience to draw out the skills of beginning students, all the while sharing his passion and enjoyment of playing music.

Donato is a terrific guitar teacher!

I took lessons from Donato for about 3 years. He was a great guitar teacher - both electric and acoustic. Not only did he teach me the songs I wanted to learn, but he also taught me the fundamentals of guitar. He has an extensive knowledge of music theory and can easily communicate that to his students. Donato was always enthusiastic and supportive, and he made taking guitar lessons fun and interesting. He also plays drums, so sometimes he would accompany me on the drums while I played guitar, which was always cool. Any student, whether beginner or advanced would benefit from taking lessons from Donato.

terrific teacher!

Donato is a great teacher and a wonderfully talented and musical person. He's taught me bass and drums, and is knowledgeable about so many genres and styles of music, and adept at basically every instrument.

He has an amazing ear; he can listen to any piece of music and immediately identify and play the melody, harmony, and rhythms, no matter how complex. He is a terrific communicator and extremely patient and encouraging as a teacher.

He's also a fantastic singer/songwriter/performer -- you should take any opportunity to hear him live -- you will definitely be inspired. I recommend Donato wholeheartedly!

Anthony S. Los Angeles, CA

I'm very passionate about performance and really love to get into the character of music. I believe that if you really internalize what you're saying, the technique will shine through.

About Anthony

I started playing music at age 9, when my mom decided to put me in piano lessons. Much to her surprise, I fell in love with the instrument and played non-stop, sometimes skipping dinner to read through a new piece or practice for an up coming competition. After winning a few state wide competitions, I enrolled in an arts high school to practice my craft, and be around other creative high school students. While in High School, I started writing music and singing in a 16 member chamber choir. The summer before my senior year, I won the prestigious Berklee songwriting competition and was awarded a scholarship to the school, which I decided to decline to make my way towards the music mecca of Los Angeles. I received a Bachelor's degree from CalArts where I focused on contemporary ...

Awesome Anthony

I've been taking singing classes with Anthony for over half a year now, singing musical theatre. He has been very accommodating with my busy schedule. Anthony is awesome, not only in his teaching style, but his genuine interest in teaching. He is also an amazing singer!

I have classes with him once a week, and I look forward to every class. He's very positive and nurturing. I came in with zero experience, and was very shy about my voice. He has helped bring my confidence level up. Though my singing ability is still shaky, I feel myself improving, and I'm now willing to belt out my favorite songs in a car with my friends.

knowledgeable, dynamic, passionate, great musicianship, articulate, carrying, flexible, reliable

Anthony has been teaching our two teenage kids for the past 6 months. They are intermediate level and have both found in Anthony a great balance. He is capable to go from classical, emphasizing on techniques and theory, to Jazz and expose them to the intricacy of chords, to pop and sing with them. He is giving them his full array of knowledge in the most gentle, encouraging yet challenging way. And instills in them the notion of phrasing and composition by guiding them to think musically. He is wonderful with them.

About Kara

From childhood I considered myself to be a singer and entertainer. Feeling called to a career in music, I began my undergraduate studies in piano and voice performance at the Wheaton College Conservatory near Chicago, Illinois. I then spent two years in France studying voice at the Conservatoire de Nancy and was awarded the Médaille d’Or in 2004. I then returned to the United States to pursue my singing career. In 2005, I had the honor of being selected to join the Maryland Opera Studio at the University of Maryland. As a member of this prestigious opera program, I performed the roles of Sophie in Massenet's "Werther", Anne Sexton in Conrad Susa's "Transformations" and Rose in the World Premiere of John Musto’s "Later the Same Evening." My love of new music has lead me to collaborate ...

Wonderful!

Kara has been my piano/voice teacher for the past few years.
She is an absolutely wonderful teacher. She is always encouraging, and her advice has always helped me immensely to perform better. Thanks to her, I won a place in the All State Chorus, and also parts in the school musical productions. She is always warm and friendly, has a fantastic sense of humor, so it was always a joy working with her. You cannot ask for a better teacher.

I had the distinct pleasure of studying voice with Ms. Kara Morgan over the past five years

I had the distinct pleasure of studying voice with Ms. Kara Morgan over the past five years. Prior to starting with her, I had not sung for a long period of time and it had been even longer since I studied voice. With her knowledge of the human voice and her ability to communicate vocal concepts, my vocal ability has exceeded my expectations. With Kara’s leadership and training, I have gained skill and confidence and I am now singing regularly as a choir member and a soloist. Diane Archer

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!
