Matt B.

Denton, TX

About Matt

I love learning, and I love sharing and developing the tools for learning. I began as a self-taught pianist at age 12, and from ages 14 to the present I have had the experience of studying with some of the most phenomenal teachers of this generation. George Katz, former chair of the Drake University Piano Department and student of the legendary artists Alfred Cortot and Marguerite Long; Jerome Lowenthal, also a student of Cortot (and William Kapell) and former chair of the Julliard piano department, and Jose Feghali, winner of the 1985 Cliburn Gold Medal have been my most influential teache
rs. From them, I learned how to learn, how to teach, and how to teach learning, which I believe is the most important skill.

As a winner of the 2000 Interlochen Concerto Competition, I had my orchestral debut that year with the World Youth Symphony Orchestra at 16. Following that, I have given concerts all over the U.S., some parts of Mexico, Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden, and in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Having become keenly interested in technology and recording engineering, I have produced many CD's for renowned artists, such as Joseph Banowetz, Jose Feghali, Mike Morey, Paul Tuntland Sanchez and Vladimir Ashkenazy. I also worked for two years as the recording engineer for the Fort Worth symphony, where I was exposed to dozens of symphonic scores and new works, and was able to study them while I was preparing the recordings for radio broadcast.

My interests expanded even further when I became interested in the study of memory. I felt that I was still a slower learner, and wanted to counteract this. Having taken up research into the functions of memory and retention, I became a student who, instead of spending 6 months perfecting a Haydn or Beethoven sonata, could learn a monster like the Ravel Trio and perform it in just over a week. It's these methods that I offer to my students, in full confidence that any one of them who applies themselves can, in time, equal and surpass my own efforts.

Anyone with an Xbox will quickly learn that I'm an avid gamer, and I am exploring using games in the fields of epistemology; i.e. using the naturally evolved need for socio-mental stimulation and the non-linear hypotheticals presented in games to affect the individual's study of rational and critical thinking.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a tool for the discovery of critical thinking as well as art, i.e. an excellent way to ready your mind for nearly all problem solving and learning. Even if you have been a prior music student, I will be able to help you advance your practice technique far beyond its current potential; my methods are original, new, and can be empirically shown to work in no uncertain terms.

I am now a Steinway partner; my students will have twice-yearly opportunities to perform at Steinway Hall, Plano, should they feel ready. These recitals will usually be held during winter or spring breaks.

For younger students, I prefer parental involvement in the lessons. The parent of a student will have more influence on their progress on a weekly basis than I can. They will be asked not only to help the student practice, but to help them practice correctly. The results of this approach can be profound. For these reasons, I ask that the parents follow the student's progress so that they can provide support for the 6 days of the week that I do not get to see the student.

I tailor my curriculum to the student, and their learning habits and interests. I draw from a wide variety of curriculum, as well as sometimes writing original pieces that focus on weak areas that must be quickly developed.

Lastly, the student's input will ALWAYS be heard and carefully considered when choosing pieces for study. The most important part of studying music is the joy of music itself. I do my very best to make sure that lessons and practice are both fun and engaging, as well as productive.

Important Note: Right now I am only teaching classical music for voice. That doesn't mean that I am not willing to supplement lessons with other styles, but classical vocal training and technique is universally applicable and should be the pop or rock vocalist's foundation regardless. Please only sign up for voice with me if you are prepared to study primarily classical repertoire. Broadway songs are also acceptable.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Steinway Concert Grand

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in training memory, technique, artistic sensitivity and the development of a musical mind. I am familiar with many methods and use them where appropriate. I will observe you (the student) and find out how you learn best, and tailor lessons accordingly, thereby using your preferred method of learning (aural, visual, or kinesthetic) to strengthen any weaknesses. Lessons with me are very fun and challenging.

Great Instruction Technique

I've been working with Matt for a few months now and he has really helped me step up my understanding of best practices, chords / scales, music theory and improvisation techniques. I have been extremely impressed with the wealth of knowledge that he possesses. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to enhance your piano playing abilities.

Excellent Singing Coach

Matt is a wonderful singing coach. He has a great understanding of music theory. He made me feel comforable right from the beginning, and I had not had a lesson in over 15 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Best teacher ever!

I've been taking lessons from Matt for a couple of years now and have performed in 2 recitals. The recitals Matt offers are an excellent motivator for reaching goals and growing my skill level. I'm very pleased with my progress and so appreciate Matt's attention to detail and his encouragement.

Jennifer J.

Frisco, TX

I've been teaching Piano for 5 years and my students have gone on to playing in recitals and doing multiple performances. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music and learn fingering techniques and as time goes on you'll be able to play some of your favorite songs. I specialize in classical piano and chord reading, typically use the Alfred books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Jennifer

Hi! My name is Jennifer J. I graduated with my Masters in Music from the University of Redlands. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Through my college career, I was able to perform in many musical productions. Some of these roles include: Yvonne in Miss Saigon (Louisiana Lyric Opera), Mother in Hansel and Gretel (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Erma in Anything Goes (University of Louisiana at Monroe), Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice (University of Redlands), and Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica (University of Redlands). There are many performance comin
g up this year, also!

During my time in Undergrad, I had the opportunities to study abroad for two summers. I was accepted into University of Miami's Salzburg program (2009), and the following summer did Westminster Choir College's Florence Voice Seminar (2010). Throughout both of these experiences, I was able to work with world renowned teachers and coaches. These programs helped me grow as a teacher and a performer.

I am a member of NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing), Texoma Region.

With the experience I have, I hope to start teaching you someday!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to have fun in lessons, but also get things done and help my students grow. I do require my students to record every lesson, therefore helping them practice during the week. All in all, I want you all to feel comfortable in your learning environment, and have fun learning!

For voice, I teach multiple breathing exercises and techniques. Also, I will organize the individuals warm-ups according to the songs we are working on and voice type.

With piano, I use the Alfred book series. I learned piano using this series and I absolutely love the visuals and techniques. It makes it easy for parents to help with their kids.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio with Yamaha upright piano. Lots of stickers and fun stuff for young students. Parents are welcome to sit in the room or are welcome to sit in the living room during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide the books, piano students need to pay $8 a book.

*** Specialties ***
In voice, I work the Alexander technique methods. I believe in releasing bad tension and freeing the voice.

In piano, I start with the Alfred Series. Once the student is in level 1B, I incorporate the use of a theory book. The understanding of theory is key in music!

Jennifer is an excellent teacher. Her attention to detail and technique cannot be matched. She has the ability to pinpoint exactly what needs improvement, and she is able to re-train the bad habits you have. I've seen a huge improvement in my voice in just one year. Now, I'm singing with a larger range with a much more healthy sound. This is important because I want my voice to last. I highly recommend Jennifer.

I teach all levels & all ages we will have a lot of fun together
! I feel it's important that students learn letter names & that a student should practice counting. I will at times havea beginning student say letters, counts, & words out loud. I will have you tell me what styles & genres of music you like then we will set our goals to attain that. I have a nurturing & relaxed approach although I do not like to hear wrong notes! We will try to have a minimum of those! I use the Faber & Faber method I think the pieces in these books are very interesting & musical. After about 6 months your pieces will really start to sparkle!

My daughter likes him. He is not too strict, but is able to still get things done. For my daughter's personality he is perfect!
