I am an experienced pianist, accompanist, director, and arranger. I have played for wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours, galas, parties, recitals, recordings, musicals, competitions, and private lessons. Directing experience includes musicals and shows, professional and student choirs, and high-caliber collegiate a cappella. As an instructor I specialize in group and private lessons in piano, voice, trumpet, and theory, as well as chorus and band.
In all of these settings I have made and used original transcriptions and arrangements for various instrumentations, including brass ensemble, marching band, solo piano, 4-hand piano, solo instrument and piano, voice and piano, and a cappella voices.
I am based in NYC, but I can provide many services via the internet, such as transcriptions, engravings and copyist work, arrangements and orchestrations, and in some cases private lessons via video call.
Please contact me with any questions you have! Thank you.
As an adjunct faculty member, I taught group and private piano to undergraduate and graduate students. Many had never played before or had only limited experience, but some were quite advanced. For group piano, required for all music majors to complete, I taught from a detailed and carefully laid out curriculum. I also tutored students in Music Theory, Ear Training, Music History, and other related subjects.+ Read More
At Music & Arts, a chain music store and lessons facility with locations all across the country, I taught piano, voice, trumpet, and music theory.
Atlanta Music Academy is one of the top music institutions in the Greater Atlanta area, providing rigorous music lessons for students both in their facility and in students' homes. In my own studio, with students ranging in age and experience, I taught from my own detailed curricula catered to each student and prepared kids for recitals, competitions, and festivals, where they consistently received highest marks.+ Read More
I feel I've learned a lot studying with Greg Matteson. My lessons were very enjoyable and always interesting. They were also productive, because my practicing was productive - I always knew exactly how I was supposed to practice. This seems so obvious, but sometimes teachers don't give enough specific instructions, and you don't make as much progress. I mainly wanted classical, but we also did a little jazz and chords/theory. I appreciated that he offered this. Highly recommend!+ Read More
Greg is an amazing teacher! He tailors his lessons to what I want to learn and is accommodating with scheduling. I highly recommend taking lessons with him!
