I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university.

I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine.

*** Lesson Details ***
For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my methods and use a scaffolding technique. Going out of your comfort zone helps learning and development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fender Jazz Bass
Music Man SUB Bass
Ampeg amp

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a logbook or notebook, staff paper, pencils, their instruments if applicable, and a metronome.

I bring extra staff paper and pencils just in case

*** Specialties ***
rock, jazz, funk, R&B, classical

Great teacher. Goes at your pace and is very patient even if he has to explain things multiple times. Makes sure you understand what you're doing and not just blindly following. Praises you when you do well and encourages you when you struggle. Looking forward to learning more from him.

Very knowledgeable. Takes his time to explain concepts and the theory. Makes it fun, but challenges you at the same time.

Matt is a very talented, smart musician. I am 44 years old and learning how to play bass guitar has been on my bucket list for sometime. He has made it fun and easy for this middle-aged wanna-be! His lessons and exercises are great. I find myself looking forward to coming home from work and practicing. He is also excellent at music theory. I highly recommend Matt to anyone.

He does a great job with my son who is 11. He takes the time to find out what he's interested in learning and tailors to my sons needs.

I have been having a great experience with Matt as a teacher. I have been taking lessons with him online for a little while now, and have been very much enjoying it. I have played the piano for a number of year, and when I was younger was not much of a theory student. I can say that I have learned a -ton- of theory already with Matt, which I really enjoy!

great teacher

Matt came to my house to teach my daughter piano. He's been a great teacher and my daughter even practices on her own, without me having to remind her. He seems calm, cool, and collected and doesn't get impatient.
