· Tuba · In home Matt helped my son with his tuba lessons over a series of months. He looked forward to working with Matt week to week and improved significantly over his spring and summer lessons! He's more excited than ever about his music classes this fall and really has been excelling.

· Trombone · Online Matt is a great teacher. He is friendly, punctual and professional. Matt connects well with my son, age 15, and is very motivating-I don't need to remind him to practice!

· Music Theory · In studio Matt taught a music exploration class that my daughter was enrolled in. He was fun and professional, I would gladly sign her up for more classes! She loved it.

· Trombone · In home Matt Taught my son trombone for a little over a year and it was a great experience for my son. He really enjoyed working with Matt and in the time they worked together he improved a great deal. We originally were only going to take a few lessons for my son to prepare for an audition, but we ended up working with Matt for over a whole year. I would highly recommend Matt for anyone looking to help their child improve!
