Healthy singing, playing and conducting all begin with an awareness of body and breath. Matthew meets each student where they are and using a combination of science, imagery, metaphor and analogy, he invites his students to build a strong foundation in technique. By creating a safe space during lessons, Matthew encourages adventurous exploration of expression and drama in all different styles of music and theater.
