I have been very pleased with my lessons. I have always loved the violin and wanted to give lessons a try later in life. Matthew is patient, engaging and fun. I am quite enjoying myself. Highly recommended!

Had my first lesson today. Great experience. He is patient and manage to teach the very basics of how to hold the bow and the violin. I thought it went rather well, considering that I know absolutely nothing about music or the violin. Looking forward to my next class.

I took one on one viola lessons with Matthew Salomon. He was very systematic, and gave individual attention to not just playing but also to form and posture. Matt is very knowledgeable about music, theory and history. His classes provide a positive and nurturing environment. Matt encouraged me to take Music Theory classes which has helped me immensely. I'm confident he can handle students ranging from beginners to advanced. In addition, Matt has a friendly personality that will put anyone at ease. I highly recommend Matt for both Violin and Viola lessons.

My daughter had her first lesson with Matthew yesterday. His patience and focus was wonderful. My daughter remains excited as do I for her learning and growth.

Matthew is great! Since I'm an older student, we are concentrating on violin positioning and bow holds. I can already read music, so he is reviewing some theory, but mostly helping me develop my ear.
