Ms. Whitney is an incredible teacher and an outstanding flutist. Every week I look forward to lessons with her and enjoy taking time from my day to learn from her. I learn something new every week and she always knows how to help me improve my playing.
Selina
My daughter took lessons from Whitney for several years, and Whitney was an excellent fit for her as teacher. She provided the right balance of structure and flexibility that allowed my daughter to advance her skills and still have fun with non-Suzuki music as well. She is kind, patient, encouraging, and fun-loving. Highly recommend Whitney as a flute teacher.

Piano needs to be fun especially for beginners. Matthew teaches with the "Piano Adventures" series. These books (available on amazon) give the student a comprehensive look at learning piano. In these books you learn how to read music, and you will be playing songs on your first lesson! As for older students I offer a review of music theory that can help you play/hear some of your favorite songs and most of all have fun! Matthew's method is based on each students individual goals and their level of proficiency on the instrument.

About Matthew

HELLO! My name is Matthew Smith and I love music and I love to teach it even more. Although my upbringing is in jazz and classical music, I am very fluent in latin, hiphop, rock, pop and more world music as well.

It was a very musically enriching experience for each of my kids, who are litle by little growing as violinists.
Sofia provided a great variety of recommendations through her knowledge as interpreter and teacher as well as cautivated everyone in the room with her passion and energy for music.
Sofia is definitely an excellent guide to learn how to play violin and the musical skills it entails.
