Introduction: Every time I work with an artist, I dedicate myself entirely to meet their specific needs. I always ensure that the finished product is of the highest quality, and that the artist is fully satisfied. Music has always been my passion, and I believe that my taste and technical knowledge are a few key reasons why my service stands out. I enjoy the entire process. From meeting and connecting with the artists, to recording them, editing, mixing and mastering their music, to then hearing how excited they are with the finished product. From musicians, to singers, rappers, or voiceover actors, I’m truly grateful for the opportunity to help anyone get one step closer to achieving their dreams. I have a lot of fun helping other creative people bring their ideas to life.

I had my first lesson on music production with Matt the other day and what a great way to kickstart my journey off as a home producer/artist. Matt helped me learn some of the foundational in's and out's of home production so that I could apply the knowledge wherever I go no matter the room size or anything like that. After our lesson, he emailed me the lesson notes too, which were both detailed and to the point. He's a great guy with a cool personality and demeanor and I'm definitely going to continue taking lessons from him. The 150+ 5 star reviews just speak for themselves. As a bonus, before I even had my first lesson, he helped me figure out a technical problem I was having with my interface and now everything's great.

He gave an honest answer to my project that it was not worth his effort to improve my initially poor-quality folder of songs.

MG Audio Engineer & Producer's reply
Thanks, Eliot! To provide context for those reading, Eliot was wondering if it was possible to improve the sound of some old MP3 recordings he’d had for several decades. Normally I’d say yes, we can absolutely improve the audio as much as possible. Unfortunately, these songs were originally recorded on a cassette, and then re-recorded with a microphone to the cassette player speaker. This was then bounced to a low quality mp3 file. Unfortunately, the resulting audio was so low quality that it was beyond repair.

Man where do I begin. Matt was extremely real and honest with me. He responded quickly and was straight forward about everything. He is absolutely perfect at his craft. Extremely experienced and professional. Not only was he encouraging but suggested so many things that allowed my confidence to flow. He made me feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone wanting a first time or real honest experience in a studio. He is easy to work with and genuine. Trust me he did not tell me to say any of this. This was genuinely my experience and I can’t wait to be back.

Details: Singing only (pre-recorded instrumentals) • Hip-hop / Rap • 26 - 44 years old • 1 track • 5 minutes or fewer

I think what I appreciate most about Matthew is his integrity & heart for what he does & how he does it. He really shows up with an honest & pure energy and a rare mentality of just being real. No ego. No desire to control. Just a genuine desire to connect to you and nourish your idea and vision. He really makes you feel seen and heard and values what you’re bringing. It is such a vulnerable thing to make music. It’s like bearing your soul and it’s not easy to trust someone enough to give them access to something so precious. It’s exciting but can also be scary. Music is a spiritual process for me and I felt very blessed to have found him. You can feel his love & passion for music and his joy for the process of doing what he does. He’s really invested & dedicated. And also knowledgeable, kind, gracious & humble. And just dope. Haha. Thank you, Matthew. God Bless. 💗
