HOW TO AMPLIFY

There are several ways to amplify a violin, each of which may be necessary in any given situation.  Matt teaches the pros and cons of each method and gives examples of situations where each method would be the preferred method.


IMPROVISING WITHOUT FEAR

Many music students do not feel comfortable improvising AT ALL.  This clinic is designed to take students from feeling completely uncomfortable to understanding basic improvising techniques in one or two hours. 


TEACHING HOW TO IMPROVISE WITHOUT FEAR

This clinic is aimed at teachers and is designed to equip them with a number of techniques to teach basic improvisation to their students.

 

EQ

Most musicians have heard the term "EQ" but don't really understand what it means or how they can use it to improve their sound.  This clinic teaches the physics behind EQ (equalization) and practical applications on how to use it.


Private lessons

Matt takes a select number of private students to teach on Skype or MusicMasters.com
