Matt has a large database of music from all genres which he uses to teach students the practical application of music theory. Students are encouraged to request their favorite songs for Matt to incorporate into the lessons. Students are not only taught theory from music books, but are also taught how to break down contemporary music. Matt teaches the student through ear training to pick out the rhythm, timing, notes and chords. Sheet music is also reviewed, discussed and played from. This reinforces how theory applies to popular music and teaches the students how to appreciate the music they hear on the radio.

Lessons are offered weekly in 30, 45 or 60 minute increments. Matt’s rates are $30 for 30 minutes, $42 for 45 minutes and $58 for an hour. Students are required to pay their monthly tuition prior to the 1st of the month. Matt offers flexible and convenient times; all lessons are by appointment. Students are offered a weekly time slot and are responsible for that studio time. In the event of student illness, Matt offers makeup sessions..
