Amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Matthew for more than a 1 1/2 years and is always asking when she will have her next piano lesson. He is a very patient teacher and very knowledgeable of the subject. Matthew has a very kid-friendly personality and now, my daughter has been taking a few singing lessons once in a while, too.

I learned a lot from him and would highly recommend him as a teacher.

I started writing songs since I was 17, I have learned that sometimes it takes a hundred songs before you get ten good ones for an album. Well versed in helping create 3 minute songs for radio airplay. If you are into progressive music like Rush and Dream Theatre, I also understand how to write songs without concern of time limit that aren't necessarily made for radio but for pure enjoyment.

Dr. Desmond was a really great instructor! He was very kind and patient with me, he was able to teach me at ability level. He encouraged me to believe in myself and to practice in order to become a better player. He made me feel comfortable and and gave be positive reinforcements when I was doing well as well as positive constructive criticism when I was slacking. I look forward to continuing my courses with Dr. Desmond, I would recommend him to any one interested in learning how to play any instrument.

She knows tons about all sorts of song genres both as a composer and a lyricist, and helped me understand a lot of basic ideas about music composition that I'd never really grasped. I would study with her again if she were back in town!"

"Joe was able to work with my daughter to approach some very complex material (using Abelton live to live loop and edit her songs) at a pace and with a vocabulary and tone that completely defused an otherwise intimidating situation. His calm, steady manner spiced with just the right touch of dry wit and his keen ear for a mean beat kept the lessons fun and very productive. Joey's not just a fantastic and unique musician and teacher, however, he's a great person and a fantastic influence to have in your life."
