Hi, there! My name is Matt and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since I began studying music in college and have loved helping my students grow as musicians. I went to Mason Gross at Rutgers and earned a degree in Music Education in 2014. Currently, I am a Masters student at Mannes School of Music in New York City studying Orchestral Trumpet Performance. I'm a caring and nurturing person and my teaching style is relaxed but structured. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
My principal trumpet teachers have been Robert Earley, a current member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Vincent Penzarella who is a retired member of the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic
Amazing teacher! I have learned so much from him. I went from only knowing how to play 3 notes to learning how to play higher and lower octives! TOT YOT!
Great teacher. Thought me how to play high notes on trumpet. YATHAI!
- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been teaching and performing as a professional trumpet player. My goal for students is to learn more about rhythm, melody, harmony, and dynamics, and how they apply to the trumpet. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels.
