Matthew K.

New York, NY

About Matthew

I have been playing professionally for over 30 years and have taught for over 10. I am proficient on keyboards, guitar, bass, ukelele, as well as lead and harmony vocals and songwriting. My focus is on developing your musical intuition through ear training, and accessing the music within. I have a home recording studio to help with the learning process. I provide a fun, safe, non-critical environment where you can access your inner musician in the most enjoyable way possible.

Many of my students have gone onto become prolific songwriters and musicians and have recorded albums. Even begin
ners can learn quickly from my method which emphasizes techniques for keeping learning music fun.

My 10th CD was released last year on Sojourn Records and was featured as NPR song of the day. Over the years my music has received much critical acclaim as I have continued to tour the world. I have opened for legends such as David Bowie, Ron Sexsmith, Robyn Hitchcock, Morphine, Bob Mould, Freedy Johnston, among many others. I have produced over a dozen albums by other artists and songwriters, and composed for major motion pictures including last years film, WON’T BACK DOWN starring Maggie Gyllenhaal.

“In a career spanning more than 20 years, he has established himself as one of America's great under-the-radar songwriters. Had he emerged five decades back, he might have been a Tin Pan Alley stalwart, turning out intelligent, accessible songwriting with the clockwork genius of and Gary Goffin. His work is rife with the clever, incisive tunefulness that marked that era.”-- National Public Radio

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to discover or re-discover their love for music and and their own natural musical inclinations. Many students report an increased sense of joy and possibility in their own lives. Curriculum depends on level of student, but is focused on being able to play favorite songs, develop comfort and ease in playing style, and accessing creativity and originality in approach. After 3 to 6 months working with me, most students can feel comfortable calling themselves a musician!

*** Specialties ***
I teach mainly guitar, keyboards, ukelele, and voice from beginning up to intermediate. I try to incorporate songwriting into the process as i find that it speeds up the process and helps to encourage enthusiasm and a more focused effort and better results. I am fluent in most styles but come from a folk, rock, country, pop background. I also have a home studio and use recording techniques to develop style and vocal ability.

It was a musical experiance, not a boring lesson

His goal was to make it a fun experience while simultaneously practicing and learning about music theory. He had us making original songs on the second day.

great inspiration

Matthew is a great teacher. He listened to my specific needs and ways of thinking. He molded our lessons around my beginner ways and helped me learn and grow in a personal way.
I now feel confident in moving forward with my Ukelele playing and learning new songs.

Dr. Joseph Merkel improved my sound with some adjustments on my first lesson! He has such a profound understanding of how to work with one's individual instrument. I look forward to continuing lessons with Dr. Merkel and advancing my vocal abilities for my professional aspirations.

Dr. Merkel is an extremely good teacher. I'm an older, beginning student in oboe. The lessons fly by, and I never fail to learn something important. He's knowledgeable, personable, and well-organized. The best!!

Eric L.

Brooklyn, NY

I have long loved the art of the B3 organ and have played in many groups over the years playing left-hand bass. There is a true nuance that comes from manipulated the draw bars and understanding the attack, sustain, and release of this keyboard instrument.
