- Teaching since:
- August 2012
Hello! My name is Matthew C. I have been teaching for 4 years and I absolutely love it. My areas of expertise are Music (Piano, Guitar, Singing, Performing, and Songwriting) and English (ESL and creative writing). Throughout my High School and College career I studied English, Creative Writing, and Music Performance & Theory.
I am currently in an indie pop trio as the lead singer plus piano and guitar. We have released a demo cd and a full length album. We have recorded in studios all across the United States and worked with producers that have worked with big name artists (Keith Urban, Family Force 5, Matchbox 20, Taylor Swift). We have been fortunate enough to perform with bands like Andrew Belle, Moon Taxi, and Remedy Drive and play in front of thousands of people. With my experience in the studio and music industry I hope I can meet your needs as a student!
Been teaching voice for almost 3 years from beginner to intermediate. I have helped many students get into choir, make the lead role for play, and rehearse songs for performances.
I have been singing in bands since 2008. Several years later (around 2010) I started playing guitar in the groups. Shortly after that I started a new duo and begin playing piano (around 2012).
As a freelance web developer I designed, developed, and rebuilt dozens of websites and specialized the e-commerce solution for all 200+ items on several sites.

He's helped me with my songwriting and improvement with my vocal/ singing techniques. Super friendly and super supportive! Definitely recommend him!
Matthew has been a great Guitar teacher for me and my 8 year old son. He is a talented musician and it's a privilege to have him as our teacher. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about learning the guitar.
I enjoy the lesson, and learned a lot in just 5 lessons! Matthew is very patient, knowledge and helpful.
Thank you, Matthew!
I have learned so much in just a few lessons! Matthew is a great teacher.
Matthew has been a great instructor! Very patient and fun to learn from!
I started taking vocal lessons with Matthew about 4 months ago, and I have to say I have learned more about myself and my voice than I expected.
He began by asking about my music genre preferences and what my goals were with singing. I like that he listened to what I want, which is really important for any teacher who is interested in seeing their student grow and stay passionate about the subject.
He introduced me to a good variety of vocal warm ups that help with finding pitch and increasing range--two aspects I am focused on improving for myself. We still consistently implement these warm ups in each lesson, and use them to test and push my vocal limits.
We also pick songs to work on and examine for specific voice techniques, which keeps the lessons fun since going through a textbook or standard lesson can become monotonous.
Overall, Matthew is a pretty fantastic teacher and he's cool (that's almost just as important). He listens to what you want and caters the lessons for your goals.
TKS Matthew - Had a great 1st class.
Matthew is very patient. Good for beginners and parents trying to feel out their children's talents or interest.
My 6 year old just had his first lesson with Matthew. We were not sure what to expect going in, but we're very pleased. Our son enjoyed our session and wants to continue learning. Matthew is very nice and patient and a cool guy. He was very good with our son and I highly recommend him!+ Read More
