I teach singers of all genres (country, classical, pop, bluegrass, rock…) to sing with confidence and freedom!

I have a M.M in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach a technique that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Benjamin

Hi! I have a Bachelors in Music Education and have started many students on their instruments. I have 3 children so I decided to give up regular teaching to be with them.
Hoping to give the love of “playing” an instrument to many others!

My lessons are uniquely tailored to each student's goals, while rooted in brass fundamentals (air, time, technique). I ask upfront what short term and long term goals you may have, then build a personal practice routine to achieve those goals and set new ones.

I make my living performing a wide range of styles, such as funk & soul, big band jazz, top 40s hits & pop music, musical theater work, and more.

I look forward to hearing what you want to learn, how you want to sound, where you want to play, and helping you get there!

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."

Mark is a great teacher he has given me a great base to build from, Even though I have never read music his ability to add that into our lessons has helped greatly in understanding what I am learning. Mark is talented and easy to follow in his teaching. He tailors the lessons to your abilities while moving along quickly. Best of all he takes the time to review your progress and answer all your questions. Could not be happier with him as my teacher."

5 Reasons My Guitar Might Be My Best Friend

Music can be a very rewarding experience - and a personal one, at that. Most musicians spend a LOT of time with their instrument, often baring their souls in the form of melodies and lyrics. If you treat your guitar like part of the family - or your best friend - you'll relate to what Gresham, OR guitar teacher Ed P. has to say here...   Did you know that some of the old blues players named their guitars?  Some of them were even rumored to sleep with their guitars.  I’m not saying tha …
