Great start for our 7 yo grandson. Tony immediately appealed to his musical interests, and prepared him to learn his first song next lesson.

Tony is seriously the best music teacher I have EVER had. He is so supportive, understanding, and knowledgeable. I have learned more about music theory in the past few months that I have taken lessons with Tony than I have across a whole 5 years. The way he explains all of the new concepts is very understandable and his encouraging nature makes you feel comfortable even if you make a mistake. He also lets you learn songs that you actually want to play, making the lessons even more enjoyable. Overall, Tony has truly helped me improve and actually makes me want to practice during my free time to become a better musician. Thank you Tony!

"Everyone should have and play a Uke. It's so simple to carry with you and it is one instrument you can't play and not laugh! It's so sweet and also very old--some are made of wood--some are made of armadillo's. I love them. The more the merrier. Everyone I know who is into the Uke is crackers. So get yourself a few and enjoy yourself."--George Harrison

I had a one off single lesson with Matthew, I was only in New York for a couple days and was lucky enough to get a sing writing session with him. He gave some great insight and valid techniques towards song writing. He was easy going and very friendly. Would certainly recommend.
Sami
Matt is an awesome instructor. Unlike a traditional guitar teacher, Matt understands what his students want to play, making lessons much more interesting and making practicing much easier. I've had a few lessons with Matt and have learned more in those lessons that I could have ever learned by myself. Highly recommend.
Diana
Just had my first piano lesson with Matthew today. He is a truly great artist and instructor who will teach you not just about the playing technique but about the music theory/history behind it. Would definitely recommend!

Private Ukulele Teacher

Ukulele is the perfect instrument for young students learning their first instrument. It's incredibly easy to get off the ground and start making music right away. For that reason, it's one of my favorite instruments to teach, and it's the instrument I recommend to first-time music students, even if they eventually want to switch to other instruments.

After years of teaching music on the side, I left my day job as a college history professor in 2018 to devote myself full time to building a co
