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.
