Mathew is an awesome singing instructor. He is able to describe how you should sound vocally as well as describe what you should be feeling (physically) while you practice. He incorporates a variety of different exercises that help significantly to produce a great sound.

I've noticed that my voice has improved significantly over the last couple of months. The sound is clearer, more powerful, and my range has improved a lot.

I would highly recommend Matthew as your next singing instructor!

Chris J. Wilton, CT

About Chris

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, and I am currently in classes towards my Masters of Music Education. With over 10 years of private teaching under my belt, I'm prepared to teach students of all kinds and ages. At my studio I have 2 drum sets set up for teacher and student, headphones for play along, a library of books and music, and recording capabilities. I have an electric bass that I like to use to play along with students to give them the feel of playing with another non-drummer musician. Students can learn their favorite music, or get help with music for school or other ensembles they're a part of. I absolutely do NOT favor one style over the other. I simply teach music and approach it all with the same level of passion. Rock, jazz, Funk, ...

Andrew Z. Trumbull, CT

I teach rudimental drumming as well as drum set. I aim to show the connection between various rudiments and grooves on the drumset.

About Andrew

I have been teaching both percussion and electric bass lessons for the past several years. I have had the privilege to play with musical greats, such as Curtis Fuller, Robert Glasper, and Peter Bernstein, on the upright bass and drumset. I intend to focus on concrete application of music theory and rudimentary knowledge to the instruments that I teach.
