Performance:
As a professional performing artist I help intermediate students adapt songs for performance and explore performance from a background in acting. From the moment you walk on stage the performance has begun. We discuss how to introduce a song, talk on the mic between songs, and how to deliver an energetic engaging performance.

Songwriting/Recording:
I work directly with students wanting to compose and write their own songs. We look a different techniques to help you get "un-stuck" and to widen your chord range and feel in songs.
Co-writing is included upon request.
I have with both beginner and intermediate students arranged recording sessions with professional studios to document songs in a professional environment complete with band and all!

Young Students:
I combine a both classical note reading/theory with learning by ear. I simplify chords to get students playing quickly and to reap fulfillment from the very first lesson.

Adult Students:
I provide you with the basics in the first three lessons and resources online to help you get moving quickly. We discuss your specific performance goals and track your progress weekly.

About Matthew

Matthew grew up in Austin, TX attending the Waldorf School and playing music of various styles on saxophone and guitar. For his musical education, he took 8 years of private lessons starting at age 12.

His first teacher was Billy Green aka Wil Greenstreet who currently plays a residency atop the Empire State Building. Green taught guitar and saxophone lessons to Kelly back to back and unleashed a powerful passion for music within. When Green moved to NY, Kelly was refered to Scott McIntosh, a world-traveled saxophonist and arranger from Quebec. For Kelly that was when it got real..

Aft
er 5 years of jazz theory and saxophone lessons with McIntosh, Matthew was invited to join a funk band in High School and the band's SXSW showcase at the old Alligator Grill was the beginning of his musical career.

Over the past 12 years Kelly has gone on to play with a long list of different ensembles across many state lines.

At age 19 he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and once there studied under virtuoso saxophonist Joshua Smith and master guitarist Andy Tran.

Kelly found a residency with a local San Jose group and did six months with The Craig Robinson Blues Band while he was gaining music students and slowly transitioning into a full-time music life. He also played with Lowfat an established Bay Area original dance band, was hired by the Darell Patrick Jazz Ensemble for private events and recorded for The Jake Makey Band before moving to Colorado in search of a higher chance of musical success paired with a lower cost of living.

In Fort Collins, CO Matthew sat in as a guest artist regularly with local jazz pianist Mark Sloniker at his residency at Jay's Bistro. Busking paid very well and helped keep the bills paid. Then Kelly could pursue playing 2 instruments in an original jam band The Hot Coal.

While in Fort Collins Kelly gave 6 months of guitar lessons to 2016 Scene Magazine coveree Elise Wunder to help her accomplish her performance goals. Today she travels the world playing her amazing original music.

In 2011 Matthew felt the need to return home. Knowing Austin is the real place to share the music and being from here, he rode his bicycle back here and eventually found the musical projects that he plays in today.

Just had my first lesson with Matt and had to come home and immediately write about it. Matt is a fantastic teacher with loads of music knowledge. He truly has a soul for music and can easily break down complicated musical teachings to a beginner level. He is extremely talented and personable and I cannot wait for my next lesson. I have not felt this excited about playing in along time and a lot of this excitement is due to how much learned in my first session with Matt and how much more I have to look forward to. Matt is a true musician in every since of the word and I highly recommend him to anyone that wants more than just to learn how to play notes but learn to play soulful, beautiful music of any genre.

I recommend Matt to be your music teacher.
He's nice, chill, fun, easy to talk to, flexible...

I learned so much from his lessons because he can come down to beginners level.
The way he explains things are simple and easy to understand even I didn't have any music background.

I really enjoyed lessons from him. If my time works out, I would love to come back to his class again!

James E.

Austin, TX

I teach many different genres and ensure that all of my students develop their musicianship with a broad understanding and practice in music theory and ear training.

About James

Hello,

My name is James Essary. I offer private music lessons in piano, guitar, bass, drums, music theory, songwriting and music composition. I've taught through my own private studio for the past 8 years and have also taught music theory and composition for CCISD's WAVE program.

I pride myself on offering fun lessons that incorporate a strong development in music theory, ear training, sight reading, improvisation, and composition. I find it very important to put each student's individual interest first. I believe if you are learning what you truly connect with then all other aspects of
music become fascinating and meaningful.

I have a Bachelor's in Music Composition with piano as my main instrument as well as an associates degree in classical guitar. I also have professional experience as a recording session musician and live touring musician. Through this experience I've studied several genres including classical, jazz, pop, rock, folk, and country which helps me adapt to each student's taste and goals.

In addition to teaching, I also work as a producer, recording engineer, and composer. This background allows me to offer my students a special inside view and education on how songs are written, arranged, and recorded. I've often written pieces and produced recordings for students of mine.

I teach in home lessons and have my own private studio. The studio has a private recording studio and a teaching studio. The teaching studio is equipped with a Chickering console piano and also provides proper equipment for guitar and bass instruction.

I look forward to hearing from you!

James is the most thorough music teacher I have had. His lessons are personalized yet comprehensive. He has a way of listening to how his students learn and adapting. While at the same time, he considers all aspects of learning an instrument important and will incorporate music theory, instrument technique and rhythm to ensure a complete understanding of what his students are practicing or playing. Just one lesson with James can set you on a motivated learning path, imagine what consistent lessons could do.

Bass Guitar · In home
I remember when I wanted to learn Beatles covers on bass. Westley owns this giant book of sheet music for every Beatles song and how to play it. So I was learning the exact way it was recorded. I remember coming to his house and showing him a short cut I found to play the song easier with my clumsy fingers. I showed him and he didn't say anything. I asked him what was wrong with the short cut I found and he smiled and said "that's not how Paul played it". I thought I was just learning Beatles covers, but Westley was teaching me to play bass like Paul McCartney.

Amazing instructor and great guy.

I learned to play the piano as a child and recently wanted to learn the guitar. Wes was recommended to me by a friend, and after engaging him as a teacher, I soon also had him teaching my son (Ukulele and Piano), and my daughter (Piano). Although I already was proficient on the piano, Wes has been amazing at teaching me (what I should have learned previously) about Music Theory and Voicing and many other aspects of playing solo & in groups. He often has my children and I playing the same songs (from different angles) so that we can play together. He adapt to our crazy schedule and often provides insights and tips throughout the week via text messages (so we don't get stuck). We all play in various informal groups and Wes helps us practice and with arrangements. He is fun to talk to - has great insights and we all look forward to our weekly lessons. We are in Houston and visit with Wes in person 2x a month and Video lesson 2x a month. Both work really well. I highly recommend Wes as a teacher for all ages.
