Lesson Details

Music Performance

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I am passionate about teaching kids. All ages are welcome. My students feel like they can take on the world! I make sure every lesson is both fun and enriching. I provide a clear lesson plan complete with goals, achievement levels, and performances. I use practical methods of teaching that help promote academic achievement. I do not overbook myself, so every one of my students gets my full attention. Music lessons promote better grades, higher self-esteem, confidence, social skills, and so much more. I teach more than just music, I teach the whole student. I hold a Master's Degree in Music Performance and a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I am ready to work with motivated and passionate students!

Teaching since:

Hi, there! My name is Matthew and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students find passion in music, reach their goals, and feeling like rock stars. I went to Bowling Green State University and earned a Master's Degree in Trombone Performance. I also went to Minot State University to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I'm a fun and exciting person and my teaching style is practical, honest, and engaging. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
