About Matthew

Heralded as "œa smart, tasteful, and genuine singer" and "a consummate multi-instrumentalist," Matthew continues to perform and broaden his range of musical experiences through diverse engagement in both the classical and non-conventional realms. Matthew has had the great privilege of performing around the world and working with some of today's brightest and most acclaimed singers, ensembles, and conductors such as Leon Botstein, Dale Duesing, Karen Brunssen, James Hall, Warren Jones, Phyllis Hoffman, Pro Arte, Canticum Scholare, and VOCES8.

As an educator, Matthew's 10+ years of teaching e
xperience in voice and drums has brought him to work with young musicians of all ages and skill types. Matthew's approach is technique driven, while at the same time, expressive, musically sensitive, and fun! Matthew's voice students will learn English and foreign language diction, ear training and sight-singing, proper posture, stage presence, confidence, and healthy vocal production suitable for all styles of singing. Drum students will learn the importance of snare drum rudiments, how to read drum charts, the nuances of various styles, as well as, develop dexterity and increase muscular function and independence. Matthew currently teaches voice and theory at Wyoming Seminary Institute in Wilkes-Barre, PA during the Summer, teaches voice at Fairfield School of Music, and owns and operates a full service analog and digital recording studio.

*** Lesson Details ***
Being a musician is exciting, challenging, and of course, rewarding. Musicians are communicators; instruments of expression. I'm a firm believer in diligent practice habits and learning the fundamentals of one's craft. From there, the music can happen.

I offer a relaxed, comfortable learning environment that is both fun and productive. A stuffy, tense atmosphere promotes timidness, and insecurity, the opposite of the environment I foster in my studio.

Whether you're a beginner with a passion, or a professional looking to fine tune your proficiency, I can help you get to where you want to be. Diligent, concise, uncomplicated, and fun! That's how I teach.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Various keyboards, full 5 piece drum set, full production and recording facility, music scores/sheet music

*** Specialties ***
Classically trained vocalist, but can teach all styles and genres of voice. Recording engineer & producer. Versed in many styles of composition. Session drummer.

Matt has been such a great teacher. I have only seen him for a short 4 months and I can already hear a huge difference in my voice. The learning environment is always positive and I look forward to his lessons every week.

I thought Matt was excellent. He not only taught the subject clearly, but he also provided a lot of encouragement - something a new singer really needs!

As an adult, I had previously taken piano/keyboard lessons prior to meeting Mr. Blackwell. He is very patient, teaches at a comfortable pace, gives a reasonable amount of homework (assignments can easily be completed between lessons) and has a gentle spirit. You would be fortunate to have him as an instructor.

5 Excellent Sight Reading Exercises for Singers
Unless you're a career-chorister, the concept of sight reading music is probably going to at best make you slightly nervous, and at worst paralyze you with fright. However, at some point, probably when you join a choir or perhaps go to an audition, you're going to have to face that hurdle. Sight reading comes easier to some singers than others, but it's not some mythical task akin to retrieving a golden fleece; sight-reading, even for the more able, is a learned skill, and there are several sig
