As a bass opera singer and professional voice over artist, I am dedicated to creating a healthy and beautiful sound with my own voice and the voices of my students. I will not come into our lessons saying there is a single way to sing. In fact, many genres require a great deal of varying vocal techniques and stylized voices. What I will do is help to lay a foundation in healthy singing so that you feel comfortable singing any genre. We will start by ensuring that your breath and vowel placement feels comfortable and from there move into repertoire of your choosing or some that I recommend based upon your interests. You will leave your tenure with me empowered to continue your passion and career for singing long after your lessons end. Music is meant to be shared. Together, we will help you to share the music and passion that you hold so dear.

About Matthew F.

Hello, my name is Matthew F. and I am a professional opera singer based out of Philadelphia. As a current roster musician with Philadelphia Opera, I know what it means to perform at some of the highest levels houses in the country. My travels have taken me across the country, singing in over 20 productions in the last three years. Now, I am returning back to Philadelphia to teach full time as I once had. Previously a student teacher at the Masterman School, I have had a true passion for music education for as long as I have been a musician. My students have grown both personally and musically through our tenure together. This is because I offer lessons that not only grow your singing ability but help to enhance your comfort for performance, public speaking, and general engagement in the production of sound. Through our lesson plans, you will even begin to see changes in how you speak as our core focus will be on breath control, vowel placement, and healthy vocalizing so that you may feel comfortable singing any genre of music. While we will focus on classical training, I want to work with you on whatever repertoire you’d like! If you’re preparing for your school’s musical, a great karaoke with friends, or just some fun shower singing, I will get you there.

Our 13-year-old son sings in the Philadelphia Boys Choir. He wants to transition into musical theater and Matt has gone out of his way to help my son with this singing, but also accessing opportunities to grow as a performer. Matt is a talented singer and teacher and goes the extra mile to help achieve dreams. Thanks Matt!

I can’t say enough great things about Matthew! He has been an amazing teacher - his technical expertise, his tremendous patience, and his ability to explain in simple terms and help me understand proper vocal technique has been instrumental in my development. I’m grateful to have found Matthew - he has shown a level of support and commitment to my goals that I haven’t seen in other teachers and I am excited to continue working with him, as I know that with his guidance I’ll achieve them.

As a young, low voice, my son was struggling with singing until he started taking lessons with Matthew. Since then, my son has developed a passion for opera and has decided to pursue a vocal performance degree in college. Matthew has not only helped him develop his voice, he has also had discussions about what to expect as a professional singer and has coached him through the college application/audition process. I can't recommend Matthew highly enough. He truly cares about his students and strives to help them achieve their own personal goals, whatever they may be.

I've had about 10-11 lessons so far with Matthew.
He's very encouraging, and knowledgeable.
So far I haven't had anything at all to complain about.
Only good things, and as an added bonus, his pups and the cat are very cute

Matthew has been excellent! He took the time to get to know my goals and really understands what I’m looking for. After just a few lessons, I’ve learned a lot about opera/classical singing from the ground up and have already developed a much deeper appreciation for singers. I can’t recommend Matthew highly enough.

I had a terrific experience working with Matthew. He helped me both technically (coloratura, breath support, etc.) and with musical interpretation. I would highly recommend him!

Matthew is simply amazing! It's clear that he has the vocal expertise and experience as he led me through exercises and techniques that allowed me to sing notes I hadn't once thought possible. As someone who has been singing a long time, but hadn't always found the opportunity to learn through one-on-one training, he led me through a process that not only allowed me to sing at my best, but to understand how the voice worked and what experiences I should be having as I sang. Matthew truly wants to help his students learn their best and healthiest sound, so they continue singing for the rest of their lives. My vocal training wasn't just about learning to sing. It was about giving myself the opportunity to invest in myself and to see where my voice could take me. Matthew cultivated me being not just a better singer, but a more confident performer and professional.
