2 words.......THE BEST!!!

Teacher's Studio

Amazing teacher! My 6 year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Matthew for more than a 1 1/2 years and is always asking when she will have her next piano lesson. He is a very patient teacher and very knowledgeable of the subject. Matthew has a very kid-friendly personality and now, my daughter has been taking a few singing lessons once in a while, too.

I have been taking music lessons on and off for many years now and it's easy to say that Matthew has been the best! He is super knowledgeable and very easy to work with. I learned a lot from him and would highly recommend him as a teacher.
