I am a classically trained pianist and composer living in New York City. I studied piano for over 17 years and received bachelor's and master's degrees in music composition. I have performed numerous recitals and have composed works for piano, voice, chamber ensemble, and orchestra. In addition, I have written musical theater and children's songs and have scored music for several film and digital media projects.
I have been teaching private lessons for 15 years and work with students of all ages and experience levels. I am available for in-person piano, composition, and music theory lessons for students living in or traveling to Manhattan, and I am also available for online lessons.
In addition to private piano and composition studies, I have extensive training in music theory, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, ear training, analysis, and orchestration.
Whether you're a complete beginner or looking to reestablish your skills, I enjoy working with students from all backgrounds and helping them achieve their goals. I look forward to hearing from you.
A few years ago I inherited my grandfather's piano. After it sat in my apartment for a couple years I finally decided to take piano lessons. Had no idea who to call or what to look for in a piano teacher. But after some research I found Matthew. The great thing was that he comes to you. I didn't have a lot of free time to go all over the city for piano lesson so he came to my home and it was a very good experience. Matthew really knows how to teach. There's a lot of great piano players in the city but not everyone who can play can also teach. Matthew is very patient and caring and made piano lessons fun and exciting. I definitely recommend Matthew for anyone looking to take lessons, whether younare a,beginner or someone who just wants to hone their skills. I'm glad to say I'm still playing today.

Matthew was excellent as a teacher for my twins. He was patient and fun, but didn’t spare rigorous expectations. Somehow, he was able to individuate instruction for 2 kids of different aptitude who were observing each other’s lessons, all the while making them both feel confident and energized to learn.Show More
