Introduction: I offer professional private lessons for the piano. I'm experienced with students of all ages, and all skill levels. I have a Bachelor's in Music from Wayne State, and I've been working as a full time performer and teacher since 2005! I teach note reading, improvisation, and music theory. We can focus on classical, jazz, show tunes, pop standards, or all of the above. I'm also very experienced with music for religious services. Working with me will give you the skills you need to succeed as a live performer, either as a soloist, or in a group or musical theater setting. In addition to being an experienced musician, I am excellent at presenting information in a clear and understandable way. I tailor each lesson to the specific needs of the student. Every age group, and every type of student, needs a specific approach. The true advantage of a private instructor is their ability to tailor each lesson specifically to you! I'd love to hear from you, to learn more about your goals. Thanks so much, -Matt [Covid-19 Response] Lessons are available virtually, over Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. If you prefer a different video service I'd love to learn about it! When meeting in person in my home, you can expect all surfaces to be sanitized immediately before you arrive, including: -The piano keyboard -The door knob -Pens / Pencils Hand sanitizer will always be available, and I will be wearing a face covering during the lesson.

Matt had my grand daughter playing a tune that she recognizes in the second lesson. In addition, Matt's patience with his young student is quite admirable. I recommend Matt highly.

We hired Matt to provide piano lessons to our teenage son, who has a classical music background. However, our son wanted to add pop music to his experience. Matt has proved to be the right person for the job! Our son has already had 6 lessons with Matt and is eager to continue. Matt has the talent, skill and patience to give his students the best experience.

I've heard Matt perform in concert and non-concert settings playing keyboard, piano, organ and even harmonium. Matt has a great sense of musical arrangement and professional presentation in working with a variety of temperaments and talent. I love his sense of allowing the music to speak through the performance. I really look forward to hearing him perform and working with him again.

Matt was very welcoming and took the time to make me comfortable trying something I was very unfamiliar with (singing). His intro to some basic vocal concepts was a great platform into uncharted territory; and though I ultimately decided not to pursue ongoing lessons, I felt like his road map for the future was personalized and encouraging.
