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.

Ear training is important when it comes to being a good overall musician and singer. I work with students to be able to identify chords, chord progressions, pitches, and more! This can also be a part of piano and singing lessons depending on the students level and goals.

Lynzi has done a great job with helping me write a song for my wedding. She has helped me with the melody and given me ideas with lyrics. She has given me he and has kept me accountable. Which I love because I need the extra push sometimes. I highly recommend her for voice and song writing lessons.

Reading the detailed "About" section below should give an aspiring singer/songwriter all the information relevant as to how and what I teach, with regard to vocal performance and technique. I have associated with published songwriters my entire 40 year career, and have gathered viable and pertinent knowledge of the craft that I can now pass along to a new era of writers. We will unpack the secrets of good songwriting, and we will write songs. We have the capabilities in my studio to record and mix your songs as well. I have co-written songs with my students that have been nominated for rewards in Nashville. Look at our sessions as practical, relevant clinics that will produce original musical material that will be heard, as you absorb the knowledge you need to be successful in this genre. To capsulize my mission statement as an instructor: You WILL be a better singer/songwriter and performer. THIS I GUARANTEE!!

Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the ho

I have taught, tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and at the college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time-efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

About Jamone

A godsend. Matt is super approachable and got me launched back into playing in a meaningful way. Widely knowledgeable, he never missed a beat and was able to help with everything from details of technique to overall approach, and successfully introduce new and challenging music. When it came time to learn recording he was always ready a couple steps ahead to show efficient ways to get things done.
Alex
Matthew helped me work on pop and bossa nova songs for guitar. He is a patient and easy-going teacher who helped me at my own pace. We went over finger style techniques and rhythmic exercises. I have been enjoying lessons and I look forward to studying more with him.

Matt is great! He is very patient and explains things step-by-step in a very comprehensive and easy to understand manner. And best of all, he never makes you feel like any questions you ask, is irrelevant or repetitious. I highly recommend Matt, and plan on continuing to take lessons from him in the future!!

A life-long learner myself I understand the need and satisfaction of continuous progress! Helping my students to learn and advance is one of the biggest rewards of lessons. Tutoring includes: Technique, music theory, reading, ear training, and more. All lessons are geared to the type of music you like to play, but what you'll learn can apply to all styles of music.
I'll set-up (adjust your instrument so that it plays as easily as possible) I’ll also teach you basic set-up and maintenance so you can keep your bass in top condition.

Contact me to discuss your interests, specific needs and to schedule lessons!
The lessons could be given at my home or yours, and any school/college rehearsal room or venue location in New York.

"I Am Learning How To Use My Voice Like An Instrument

Margo’s vocal training technique helped me to become a more consistent vocalist. I use to reach for notes when I was concerned about hitting the wrong note. She taught me where to place notes in my mouth by using my Jaw, head, body, etc. In addition, Margo taught me how to phrase the songs that I like to sing more beautifully.

Thank you :-D"

"I love Fawn! She's a great piano and voice teacher. My daughter started piano with her at 5 1/2 years old, and I was so thrilled at how Fawn was patient with my daughter's wandering interest. She works within my daughter's personality which makes it so much easier for my daughter. I feel Fawn really tries every angle to interest the kids, even using the iPad to guide kids through rhythmic games. My daughter also started improving immensely in her reading and writing at school once she had started piano lessons. It really was quite profound - and true what the studies say about music lessons improving academic performance! We just started doing vocal lessons and I love Fawn's individual approach. Speaking with Fawn, I can say I am completely taken with her enthusiasm and supportive attitude towards the kids and their musical development. I drive out of my way to take lessons at her studio, but she is worth it! On occasion we have done online, and that works fine too. Don't hesitate to go with Fawn! You'll be so happy you did!"

What is the Suzuki Cello Method?

The Suzuki method, founded in 1945 by violinist Shinichi Suzuki as the Talent Education Movement, is one of the most enduring teaching methods, or pedagogies for young string players. Suzuki’s main goal for his music education system was to give students a “noble spirit,” which would instill respect and cooperation through his method. The method was brought to America in the 1960s by John D. Kendall, and today the Suzuki Association of the Americas instructs new teachers and studen …
