I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.

I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

For in-person lessons, we will meet in an outdoor setting to learn photography in natural light and existing light conditions. Online classes can be held in any location you have access to over Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.

I enjoy taking lessons with Sarah. As a beginner, she takes the time to explain every detail regarding the photography and the use of my camera. I learn so much after a few lessons.

Piano shouldn't be boring, it shouldn't just be Bach, and it shouldn't be endless, pointless exercises.

Piano should be fun, interesting, and practical. Theory, scales, and exercises should be helpful, practical, and directly tied into pieces a student is learning, and each student should get the opportunity to work on pieces they're interested in, not just keep to standard repertoire only.

I tailor piano lessons to each student, their goals, and their musical tastes. While I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, students are always welcome to bring in extra pieces to work on or ask for help finding something specific. Every student will learn the basics of sight reading, playing by ear, improvising, and harmonizing--then work more on whatever they are interested in.

As a professional pianist, I will teach practical skills that can actually earn my students money when they get advanced enough, such as reading lead sheets, playing with the timing of a piece, and accompanying

"An excellent teacher

I started taking lessons with Matt when I was 16 and when we started up again this year (I'm now 31) we were able to pick right back up where we left off. That should tell you all you need to know about how much he cares about his students.

He's an especially excellent teacher because he's so passionate about music and his instrument. You'll never run out of new things to learn because he's always learning new things himself.

Nobody will teach you to love the guitar like this dude!"
