    Our son did an excellent job as a lead role in his production of The Music Man thanks to his work with you. The director of the show wrote him a very complimentary note and stated how much progress he had made since last year. It was a wonderful experience for him and we are just so thankful to you and that you totally made it happen for him. Thank you again for being so invested and so kind. We truly hope our paths cross again soon. You are such a gifted teacher and we are lucky to know you.

    I love taking acting lessons with Matt. He has made me feel so much more confident in my acting abilities. Matt has various ideas and techniques to emphasize my emotion and improve my dialogue delivery depending on what audition or performance I am working on. He is also an awesome person to talk to. I plan to work with him through all my high school years to come.
