Biography

Pianist Matthew S. is a Mankato, Minnesota native and began performing for the public as a choir accompanist and church musician at age 11. Participation in piano competitions and master classes also helped fuel his passion for the instrument early in life. Still today he is an active chamber musician and also thrives as a soloist.

With the little free time that remains on his schedule, he shares his music with schools, churches, hospitals and friends. He looks forward to continuing his education and to a career of teaching and concertizing.

Its only my first lesson with this teacher, but it went really well. It was fun. We worked on new and different things such as scales and circle of 5ths. He listened to me when I had questions and comments, very supportive. Listened to my whole song before critiquing. Very energetic teacher, did a good job of assessing my current ablity. He seems very enthusiastic and happy to be a teacher.

My daughter loved her first singing lesson!! Matthew was nice, outgoing, and sensitive to my child's feelings. Not a minute was wasted, he dived right into the lesson. My daughter cannot wait until her next singing lesson.
