We integrate modern music examples and songs into our learning. We focus on active listening and listening to full albums as examples of how we can become better at our instruments technically, and creatively.
I also teach my students the importance of playing by ear as well as sight reading to become a better well-rounded musician.
Matt is an extremely proficient and qualified educator. He knows how to work with all levels of musicians and is vey kind and straightforward in his approach!
Matt has changed my approach from just playing a part to playing with expression. He reminded me that it wasn't about what was on the sheet. It's about what comes out of the instrument. He is a professional musician who strives to give his students as much as that professionalism as possible. Highly recommended!
Matt went to Berklee so he's very knowledgeable. He's a nice guy and fun to work with. He's very diverse and can help with a wide range of styles.
Matt is really knowledgeable, there is always something to learn
I have a Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration) from Berklee College of Music in Valencia, Spain.
