About Matthew
Heralded as "œa smart, tasteful, and genuine singer" and "a consummate multi-instrumentalist," Matthew continues to perform and broaden his range of musical experiences through diverse engagement in both the classical and non-conventional realms. Matthew has had the great privilege of performing around the world and working with some of today's brightest and most acclaimed singers, ensembles, and conductors such as Leon Botstein, Dale Duesing, Karen Brunssen, James Hall, Warren Jones, Phyllis Hoffman, Pro Arte, Canticum Scholare, and VOCES8.

As an educator, Matthew's 10+ years of teaching e
xperience in voice and drums has brought him to work with young musicians of all ages and skill types. Matthew's approach is technique driven, while at the same time, expressive, musically sensitive, and fun! Matthew's voice students will learn English and foreign language diction, ear training and sight-singing, proper posture, stage presence, confidence, and healthy vocal production suitable for all styles of singing. Drum students will learn the importance of snare drum rudiments, how to read drum charts, the nuances of various styles, as well as, develop dexterity and increase muscular function and independence. Matthew currently teaches voice and theory at Wyoming Seminary Institute in Wilkes-Barre, PA during the Summer, teaches voice at Fairfield School of Music, and owns and operates a full service analog and digital recording studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Being a musician is exciting, challenging, and of course, rewarding. Musicians are communicators; instruments of expression. I'm a firm believer in diligent practice habits and learning the fundamentals of one's craft. From there, the music can happen.

I offer a relaxed, comfortable learning environment that is both fun and productive. A stuffy, tense atmosphere promotes timidness, and insecurity, the opposite of the environment I foster in my studio.

Whether you're a beginner with a passion, or a professional looking to fine tune your proficiency, I can help you get to where you want to be. Diligent, concise, uncomplicated, and fun! That's how I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Various keyboards, full 5 piece drum set, full production and recording facility, music scores/sheet music

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained vocalist, but can teach all styles and genres of voice. Recording engineer & producer. Versed in many styles of composition. Session drummer.

Really loved my lessons with Matt - from the get go even though he had a super busy schedule he was able to squeeze me in (because I had wanted to work on a project initially that was time-sensitive). He is very knowledgeable about techniques and I learned a lot about what the foundations of singing (starting as a complete beginner) - and feel a lot more comfortable and confident singing after. Matthew is also easy going and pleasant and happy to work on a variety of things (or one thing over and over) and so it's also just fun to take lessons with him! Wish I could continue and get even better but I have to travel soon for work for a period of time - hopefully when I'm back I'll get back to this!

About William
Hello everyone. I have a bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance from Valley Forge Christian College and I have been performing since I was three years old. I play several instruments and have learned the key skills needed to be a successful musician in any genre. With five years teaching experience and a willingness to learn, I have discovered new ways to help my students become better musicians. I can show you the ways to hone your skills through different drills and practice strategies. Also, I can teach you ways to keep your instrument working at top shape by keeping your physical health in
good condition. I want to teach you what you want to know with a little push to expand your abilities. I can also give you great tips ln running, and help you with your biblical studies. I hope to hear from you soon.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Will for just over a year. I am amazed by the progress she has made. The goals she set a year ago were easily attained with Will's guidance and training. In addition, he is incredible flexible, kind and compassionate.
We look forward to the growth we know our daughter will achieve in the coming year working with Will.

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

About Alec
Hello! I have been teaching the fundamentals of classical singing for many years now and I have received both a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music in vocal and opera performance. I promote a fun and healthy learning environment and make sure that my students learn the technical fundamentals in breathing, relaxation, production, and projection while also enjoying the lessons! I teach all styles of singing and enjoy doing it very much. My classical and operatic training has given me a wealth of vocal knowledge and allows me to make sure all other styles of singing are done as easily and h
ealthfully as possible allowing my students to express their talents as much as they can for the least amount of effort.

Alec is an excellent teacher. Not all talented performing artists and/ or musicians have the ability to teach well . Alec is really remarkable in his ability to assess individual ability and learning needs and to implement a plan of instruction based on sound theory. He is professional, courteous, reliable and well informed. What else is there?

My daughter has had an interest in musical theater ever since she was little, and has recently expressed a desire to expand her vocal capabilities, in order to enhance her level of performance. Through working with Alec, she has learned a great amount of technique, while working on developing a mature yet enjoyable repertoire. Alec is an extremely knowledgeable musician and instructor, maintains an attitude of professionalism and amicability and is flexible in regards to scheduling lessons. He is wonderful at providing motivation and encouragement to his students, while challenging them to grow as musicians. Even though my daughter has only been taking lessons with Alec for a few months, I have already witnessed a tremendous improvement in her singing as well as confidence in her performing. I would highly recommend Alec to any interested vocal student!

Alec is an incredibly dedicated teacher. He teaches with enthusiasm and I always have a lot of fun at each lesson. He is incredibly knowledgable of how the voice works and can always give advice on any vocal issue that I might be working out. He is not only helpful in vocal technique but also is a great help with repertoire, audition preparation, diction, and the music business side of things. I couldn't recommend him more!

4 Drama Techniques to Always Remember

3 Drama Games for Learning Method Acting
Method acting requires you to fully embrace your transformation into your character. To create an authentic experience for your audience, you need to lose the speech inflections, facial expressions, and physical mannerisms that wouldn't make sense. For example, when an actor plays a depressed man, his cynical speech won't be convincing if he delivers it with perfect, confident posture. When Hollywood stars stay in character between takes, or improv comedians wear disguises to interact with un
