Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

I've relied on Matt as an outside-consultant for numerous projects over the past decade - everything from business plans from scratch to my most recent project, a bi-coastal film festival tour. Matt's past experiences as an individual entrepreneur, event planner, and as a creative individual have made his insights consistently invaluable to me. What I appreciate most about Matt is his ability to listen and ask me questions that push my own thinking and creative process in new, unexpected directions. He is pragmatic, honest, and inspiring - everything I need in a consultant. I cannot recommend Matt highly enough, and I know I will be using his services for years to come.
