As a bass opera singer and professional voice over artist, I am dedicated to creating a healthy and beautiful sound with my own voice and the voices of my students. I will not come into our lessons saying there is a single way to sing. In fact, many genres require a great deal of varying vocal techniques and stylized voices. What I will do is help to lay a foundation in healthy singing so that you feel comfortable singing any genre. We will start by ensuring that your breath and vowel placement feels comfortable and from there move into repertoire of your choosing or some that I recommend based upon your interests. You will leave your tenure with me empowered to continue your passion and career for singing long after your lessons end. Music is meant to be shared. Together, we will help you to share the music and passion that you hold so dear.

Matthew was great to work with. He analyzed my voice and has a great plan to make my voice better.

Excellent instruction for our first session, tailored exactly to where you are - and I’m a total beginner! Explained all the terms and theory that we’ll be working on, and is focused on finding out exactly what my natural voice does, and how to improve from there. Very excited to continue working with Matt!

I teach flute lessons in the heart of Mount Vernon, just a few blocks away from the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland. With four years of teaching experience and a wealth of creative knowledge gained from my time at Oberlin College and Conservatory, my teaching caters to every age and ability. In addition to studying at Oberlin (and now Peabody) I grew up in a very musical household, and have two younger siblings.
I love working with all types of students, whether they’re preparing for college auditions, just beginning the flute, or only looking to play for fun, and I also have experience with students with special needs. Please contact me through this website if you would like lessons, and I will respond within a day!

In a fun and easy going atmosphere, I will introduce to the beginners the
Conga drum, how to play correctly and effortlessly all 7 “official” sounds on the Conga. Every class will consist on a routine of proper technique review and warming up exercises, followed by learning basic patterns.

The first couple of lessons will be always geared towards the beginner student. As the student grasped old concepts, then we will move at a faster pace to attend the needs of the intermediate level students.

Excellent teaching style! My son has learned so much in the past year, in how to master the drums, more than ever! Obviously, Murray loves what he does and is at the master level. My son gets so many compliments whenever he plays. Murray is just a caring, compassionate, and decent person.

Murray has been the Best Drum Teacher EVER! I have been through 4ish teachers and when I found Murray he helped me be able to play for my church! He will teach you multiple kinds of rhythms, beats, songs and grooves. And he has such a good attitude through every mistake I make! If you want a drum teacher who will teach you everything he can, and maybe some stuff he doesn't know, then Murray is the instructor for you!

I love teaching music! I have been a professional guitar instructor for over 15 years. Through attentive one on one instruction I develop a program to suit the player's goals. I emphasize technique with drills designed to raise my students' skills evenly across a wide range of categories, like picking, fretting, scale patterns, chord shapes, chord progressions, rhythm training, and ear training. I can guide a complete beginner toward being able to play songs and have fun. For the more serious student I have a plan that will make you a better player and musician guaranteed.

I discovered music sifting through my Dad's record collection and soon decided that I wanted to play guitar. As a teenager I began taking lessons and building confidence in my abilities. I played in different types of bands ranging from rock, country, blues, and jazz. After completing College in

"I have really enjoyed my drawing lessons with Kelvin! He is very detailed in his instruction and ensures that his students learn the essential skills necessary to become good drawers. He is very encouraging and honest in his feedback. I appreciate his transparency when critiquing my work. I need to hear the truth in order to get better. When I draw something that he is astounded by, I will know that I have truly earned his respect. My lessons fly by because we're having such a good time. I'm enjoying the journey."
