BM in Percussion Performance University of Iowa Studied with: Dr. Dan Moore, Vern Spevak, Chic Evans, Ron Spaeth, Jim Dreier Received Music Scholarship to attend U of Iowa Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences -Received Many Certifications and Degree -Certified in Pro Tools Recording Software and others *** Lesson Details *** I encourage my students to pursue all types of music. I like to use “method books” to help with reading and music theory no matter which instrument they choose. I always use supplemental materials that follow the student’s interests and level. I often use technology in lessons to motivate and help students grow. For example, I use many apps for theory, note reading, and rhythm training. A cancellation 24hrs in advance is always appreciated.

Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!
