Matthew V.

all styles, dexterity, muscular independence, stick technique, snare drum rudiments, drum charts, drum notation

About Matthew

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 e
xperience 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 voice and theory at Wyoming Seminary Institute in Wilkes-Barre, PA during the Summer, teaches voice at Fairfield School of Music, and owns and operates a full service analog and digital recording studio.

*** 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.

Matt has been such a great teacher. I have only seen him for a short 4 months and I can already hear a huge difference in my voice. The learning environment is always positive and I look forward to his lessons every week.

I thought Matt was excellent. He not only taught the subject clearly, but he also provided a lot of encouragement - something a new singer really needs!

Barry S.

Danbury, CT

About Barry

Hi! My name is Barry and I have been teaching for over 10 years in the Fairfield County, CT area. I have had success teaching all ages, styles and abilities, from the most gifted to the physically impaired. I grew up listening to a tremendously wide range of music, and have studied classical flute, rock, jazz and classical guitar, and even the japanese shakuhachi, with some of the great minds of the instruments. I graduated high honors from Queens College with a Masters' in composition, and have had works performed by major acts in the contemporary classical scene. In jazz, I have shared the s
tage and recording studio with the likes of Marc Ribot and William Parker; I have quite a bit of experience as a performer that I bring to my teaching. My passion for music is addictive; I have turned the least motivated students into consummate music lovers. My goal is to find a student's personal musical voice so they have the opportunity to discover where THEIR musical passion lies. Whether it be country, rock and roll, or classical, the long term goal is to both teach the student what they love, as well as expand their musical horizons to discover things they may never have thought they would love.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach in a fairly laid back style with an emphasis on technique, theory making the most of your practice time. Starting with a set curriculum, the material moves into more student chosen songs as the lessons progress. The idea is to communicate the connections between music with the goal of expanding the students ear and teaching them to listen; not just in music but in every aspect of life.

*** Studio Equipment ***
room in basement piano, drumset, mixer seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have their own instruments and amplification for electric guitar, music stand and place to take lessons in their home. If they don't, I am knowledgeable of the local music stores and can recommend places to either buy or rent instruments. I provide practice sheets and curriculum.

*** Specialties ***
In general, for each instrument I teach I have a cirriculum for the primer/beginning level. Once that level is reached, the direction becomes more student driven; that is if the student responds to classical music (for instance), we will focus on that. As the students interests change, the lesson development changes and the student grows as a musician. That being said, I am primarily a classical pianist, and a jazz/rock guitarist/drummer. While I am a classically trained flautist, much of my gigging and recording experience is with rock bands.

Very good experience.

Barry has great patience....I enjoy my lessons, but I don't always practice as much as I should so I'm not as good at this as I might otherwise be. He makes the learning experience very worthwhile. It makes me want to stick with it. He definitely gets an A+!!

Max T.

Easton, CT

Hi! I've been teaching drums for 14 years. My goal is to teach students the fundamentals of drumming so they can express themselves fully on the instrument.

Curriculum:
Stick control & reading notes. (on pad)
Next you'll learn the 26 rudiments followed by these three books:
Syncopation - Reed
Advanced Techniques - Chapin (drum set)
Modern Rudimental Swing Solos - Wilcoxon

Like any good teacher I strive to get to know my students and teach each one according to his/her strengths.

About Max

Hi,

My name is Max and I'm a drummer. I've lived in NYC since 2000 when I moved here to study at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. There I was fortunate enough to study with many of the greats including Joe Chambers, Charli Persip and Cecil McBee among many others. Also at The New School, I also met my mentor, Michael Carvin.

Since graduating I've played with many bands including Francis and the Lights and Dinowalrus.

I first began teaching at a summer camp back in 2001. In the past year I've started teaching again and love it! I'm a very patient teacher and I acc
ept all levels. If you have any interest in drumming I can help you get where you want to be.

"I've had 12 lessons with Max T. I now feel confident in the basics and excited to learn more. Max is patient, kind, and intuitive to my level of learning each week. He appreciates and understands where I’m at, and is able to direct and inspire me for the next lesson. Max is knowledgable and talented, but most important, I feel like he gets me and my potential, while keeping me grounded. That’s what keeps me motivated. And playing. I recommend anybody who wants a start at expressing themselves on the skins to take a dive into it with Max. You won’t be disappointed."

As an adult, I had previously taken piano/keyboard lessons prior to meeting Mr. Blackwell. He is very patient, teaches at a comfortable pace, gives a reasonable amount of homework (assignments can easily be completed between lessons) and has a gentle spirit. You would be fortunate to have him as an instructor.

Daniel B.

South Salem, NY

Having performed jazz, funk, rock, pop, blues, and Brazilian fusion, among other genres, I use the fluidity between these inform each of my lessons. Whether a student is a beginner looking to play their favorite song on the radio, an intermediate looking for some rhythm theory to give them more options in their playing, or an advanced player looking for improvisatory techniques, I tailor each session to the desires of each student and their learning style.

About Daniel

I'm a gigging musician and teacher who graduated from Oberlin College in May 2015 with a degree in Musical Studies and Physics. I was on the Division III tennis team there for two years as well. I pride myself on patience and empathy no matter what I teach, whether it feeling the pulse of a complicated drum groove or solving a challenging physics word problem. For music lessons, I strive to bring in a context of genre fluidity and history, so that a student knows where and what to explore on their own even when I am not in the room to show them. Overall, my teaching is all about inspiring stud
ents to do well and make their strengths work for them, rather than dryly coming up with the "right answer" or playing a tune the "right way" to get from point A to point B.
