Matt has been nothing short of amazing. I initially chose him for his willingness to do in-person lessons when everyone else is still wanting to hide behind computer screens, but I had no idea what a jackpot I had actually found. He has been just incredible with my teen. From the moment they met, my son (who was super nervous) was put almost instantly at ease. Matt has connected with him, challenged him and motivated him beyond my expectations. He is also an amazing communicator and has helped this non-musical mama out tremendously when it comes to buying supplies and necessary items to support my son's passion for the cello. Matt is beyond professional and is an incredibly talented cellist with an extremely impressive resume. His rates are absolutely reasonable and I feel like he is worth every penny and more. I can't wait to watch my son continue to grow as a musician with Matt's dedication and guidance.Aug 13, 2020Verified
I started taking lessons with Matt at the beginning of this year. I was a beginning student to the cello and Matt did a great job starting me off with the basics and tailoring my lessons to meet my expectation and skill level as I have progressed. I have been learning a lot and he is encouraging and helps me be excited to learn new skills and pieces. Matt does an amazing job finding appropriate things for me to work on at my level and gives my multiple techniques to work on them. His knowledge of the cello and music is top level and he has exceeded my expectations for my lessons. If you take lessons with Matt prepare to learn a lot and be challenged at the appropriate level. You will not be disappointed with him!Jul 7, 2020Verified
Matt is a fabulous instructor. I’m a 30 year old total beginner student who has been taking lessons virtually from Matt for a few months. I have now learned a variety of simple songs, and possess a very basic understanding of playing the cello and reading music. This is an instrument that takes years to master, but every week Matt teaches me new songs or techniques. Without such a talented instructor, I would be totally lost on the minutiae of fine techniques which have now formed my foundation. Matt is not only an acclaimed cellist and doctoral music student, but he’s also friendly, patient, and quite personable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone of any age or experience level.May 29, 2020Verified
We've only had one lesson so far, but Matt has been very professional and he was really patient with my eight year old son.Sep 1, 2020Verified
Cello Lessons (for adults)
I began cello lessons with Matt as a complete beginner; I have never played any instrument and decided to learn as an adult. Matt’s enthusiasm for music and the cello is infectious and he is a patient and encouraging teacher. Matt works well with students of all ages; he has also taught my middle school daughter. He is flexible with scheduling. We have really enjoyed working with Matt!Dec 22, 2019Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bacherlor’s and Master Degree’s in Cello Performance and nearly 10 years of teaching experience.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began learning the cello at age 4. As I travelled more and more to perform, I came upon teaching opportunities in the masterclass and private lesson settings where I fell in love with guiding a student towards improving their craft at the cello. Nothing is more exciting than figuring out how a student learns and seeing them “get it!”
- What types of customers have you worked with?All ages, from 5 to retirement!
