I'm a professional saxophonist/ composer trained both in performance and pedagogy with 5 years experience teaching I owe everything to teachers that inspired me when I was young. There is nothing like the feeling of doing the same for someone else! I love to pass on what I know, and to learn from my student's unique viewpoints and experiences.
About Matt B.

Hi! I'm Matt, a saxophonist and composer. I'm a graduate of Manhattan School of Music's Jazz Program (BA '18). I teach saxophone to people of all ages and skill levels. In addition, I teach independent ear training and music theory lessons (I also factor ear training and music theory into saxophone lessons if students are interested).

Matt Burkett is a great music instructor. My son has been his student for about 2 years already . Matt helped my son improve his sound, his low notes, and sight reading. But most importantly he motivates my son to practice more and have fun playing his saxophone. Highly recommend.

I've been playing the saxophone for 10 years, and I have never sounded as good or felt as confident since taking lessons with Matt. Matt plans lessons around achieving my goals as a musician, specifically improving my improvisation. Matt explains ideas I have struggled to comprehend in a way that makes me feel like I could have discovered these musical ideas myself. We work on everything from fundamentals, sound, technique, and theory, and Matt provides fun exercises that allow me to put ideas into practice. Contemplating concepts like voice leading, chord progressions, and substitutions have given me a plethora of material to keep me busy, and makes me excited to pick up the saxophone and continue working on my musical journey. I highly recommend lessons with Matt for any level player.
