Aaron is an exceptionally talented, outstanding teacher and person! My 16-year-old son has learned so much from Aaron online already and genuinely looks forward to lessons with him every week. We highly recommend Aaron! :)
Sarah
Highly recommend. I played flute in high school (15 years ago) and am new to keyboard as a hobby. He's attuned to my level of comprehension and has been helping me master skills at a good pace. Highly proficient musician and instructor; answers all my questions and demonstrates songs/skills as we go. Has an excellent Zoom setup using multiple views, which has made remote learning a breeze. Thanks Aaron!
Kelly P.
Aaron was great with my son who is just starting out with drums. He slowed down where my son needed more support and sped up when he was gaining skills quickly. The support with recordings of the lessons and practice plan for the week is fantastic and the multiple camera views during the lesson was really helpful when showing techniques.

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.

Murray is friendly and accessible. He is able to combine his skill with an obvious love of teaching. His approach seems to emphasize technical skill, fun, and a bit of boldness on the student's part. I appreciate his ability to represent the many potentials of drumming, not just as an art but also as a modality of expression and healing that can meet the needs of the moment for a person or a community.
Margie & Ian R.
We had fun and are looking forward to our second lesson. Thank you,

Murray was an AWESOME teacher! Learning musical instrument via zoom sounds like it may be difficult or not as productive as in person but Murray proved that wrong. Each class was fun and interactive and came away feeling more confident than the last.

Christine is a fantastic piano teacher! She made me feel comfortable and at ease with what was my first ever exposure to the piano. I didn't feel nervous or anxious. She gave me a good explanation of the basics and clearly communicated what I needed to know so I could perform the required actions. She gave me excellent feedback, correction, and encouragement. I'm very pleased to have her as my piano instructor!

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.

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!

Our 13-year-old son sings in the Philadelphia Boys Choir. He wants to transition into musical theater and Matt has gone out of his way to help my son with this singing, but also accessing opportunities to grow as a performer.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.

Acrylic painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within).

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be able critique and give advise on their work in progress.
