"Matt is kind and personable. He listened to my concerns and helped me focus on what sort of positions I should be looking for. Then he helped me tweak my resume and cover letters, and even put me in contact with professionals in my field. I highly recommend his services."

"First and foremost, I must say that I really enjoy working with Matt. I think he is an amazing instructor. He is very personable and non-intimidating. His expertise is top notch!
I have learned so much and feel as though I am making great strides in the way that I sing. Before taking lessons with Matt, I felt as though my voice was a big mystery. I would inhale and hope and pray that the right sounds would come out. Now I know how to carry my body and place my voice so that I can control what comes out.
Another thing that I personally liked was that he was patient with me. I was very shy during the first few lessons, but he made the environment really comfortable; which I think is very important. He is also very accommodating with scheduling lessons. I’m not always able to take lessons at the same time/day each week, and with his flexibility, this was never an issue.
Overall, I am very happy with my lessons and I would recommend Matt to anyone looking to take voice lessons.
