I have been playing the piano for many years and my passion grows stronger each and every day! I started my classical training 15 years ago and have written hundreds of songs on piano and played in many ensembles. I graduated from Drexel University with a degree in recording arts and music production, which has given me the technical skills I need to write, record, and produce my own music. When my students master a piece, some of them like for me to record them playing it and then edit it to make it sound like a professional recording! It can serve as a great confidence booster and a fun keepsake to look back on when the song eventually falls out of their muscle memory. Whether you're a beginner interested in learning the fundamentals, a player looking to improve your chops, or you just want to learn how to play Lewis Capaldi's "Someone You Loved," I can help you define your goals and work towards them through good practice and good habits! I also offer private lessons on songwriting for piano, if you already play piano at any level and are interested in letting out your inner creativity!

About Matt C.

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, in a Philadelphia suburb. I am classically trained on piano, and I have been playing for 15 years. I also have been playing guitar and writing songs for the past 9 years. I have written and played with lots of bands around Philly, and my abilities have grown exponentially from playing with other musicians. I released my fully produced full-length album and graduated from Drexel University in 2019, with a degree in recording arts and music production, before moving to Chicago in the summer. These days I work part-time at a professional recording studio and teach music to middle/high school students at Fusion Academy Oak Brook.
