Audio Production Lessons
Matt has been an awesome teacher for me. We've been working together for over a month now. He's willing to really take time and tackle details of whatever we are working on, whether it's a mix, an instrumental part, or general music questions. We've recently expanded from mixing to general songwriting and designing the arrangement with the mix in mind. I definitely recommend Matt!Oct 12, 2015Verified
Matt is an incredible teacher!! He tailors the lessons to my learning style and interests, making the material easier for me to retain. I have learned so much about music theory and have had significant improvement in my piano playing since I have begun lessons with Matt. I enjoy each lesson immensely and am thankful for the time Matt has put into my development. If you are looking for a piano teacher that will teach you quickly in a judgement-free and welcoming environment, you've found it!Dec 20, 2018Verified

Piano Lessons (for adults)
Matt is an amazing musician and teacher! He is patient, innovative in his approach, and fun to work with. I am not a professional musician, but wanted to get back into playing piano, and particularly strengthening my ability to play by ear. He has taught me some music theory and techniques for approaching the chords and makeup of a song. He is also great about communication and extremely professional. I would highly recommend having him as a musical coach or teacher!Jun 1, 2017Verified
Piano Lessons (for adults)
As a professional musician with a background in ethnomusicology, Matt offers a high-degree of music theory knowledge and wisdom which he imparts at each lesson. I initially sought out Matt's expertise because, as a past musician who used to play woodwind instruments at the youth competition level, I was missing the musical component of my adult, post-college life. My lessons in Matt have not only been informative, but they have revitalized my love of music. His flexibility has worked out well for my busy schedule, and I definitely have been able to fulfill a lifelong dream of playing the piano. I highly recommend Matt's services for anyone of all levels.Jun 11, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons are 60 minutes long and are charged by the hour. Students must pay for the entire month of lessons upfront. There is a 24 hour cancellation policy for anything other than sudden illness. If the cancellation policy is not met, the student is charged for the lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our first lesson is centered around finding out what the student already knows, and where the holes are in their musical knowledge so I can determine what to focus on. We also speak about the student's goals, and then figure out the best way to proceed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been teaching music lessons for 14+ years, have been a professional musician for 15 years, a record producer/engineer/mixer for 10 years... I also have an Ethnomusicology/Psychology degree from Cornell University
