I'm a recent graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, with a BFA in Jazz Drums Performance. During my time in college, I held positions as a teaching assistant for jazz drum set, jazz history and German. I conducted drum set and piano lessons to individuals ages 5 and up for over 7 years, and have taught secondary school classes on music technology. I have expertise teaching music related topics, ranging from music theory, composition, orchestration/ arranging, and music technology (i.e.: ProTools, Logic, Ableton, Reason, Reaktor, Max/MSP, Supercollider, Sibelius). I have done translation work in German (I am a native speaker) and French in various fields, as well as instructing individuals.

Corporate Training:


I have been playing drums professionally for over 15 years, and perform and record regularly in the Los Angeles area, as well as internationally. I received a music degree in Jazz Drum Set Performance from the California Institute of the Arts, during which time I was also a teaching assistant for drums to Joe LaBarbera.

I am proficient in a variety of styles ranging from rock / pop, to blues and jazz, RnB, live electronica, and world music traditions from India and West Africa. I have been teaching drum set to students ages 5 and older for over 10 years, and have a practice studio, which is fully equipped with 2 drum sets, located in Glassell Park.

General Music

I hold a music performance degree from the California Institute of the Arts. As part of my studies, I was well trained in music theory and harmony, ear training, and composition, ranging from counterpoint to 20th century techniques. In addition, I have sufficient keyboard skills, to demonstrate and teach the material in a comprehensive and practical way.


I have been playing piano for over 7 years. I received a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Drum Set Performance from the California Institute of the Arts, where piano playing techniques and sight reading skills were part of the required curriculum. My skill set includes classical, as well as popular music and notation. I have been teaching piano to ages 4 and older, for more than 3 years, with students performing publicly on a regular basis.

A wonderful tutor — Matthias is a very wonderful, helpful tutor. He contacted me right away and was very accommodating to my schedule. He is very punctual and I've found my lessons with him to be invaluable. I've had 3 lessons with him so far and I find I really feel at ease to take time to process something in my head. He is very positive, so I'm not afraid to ask questions or say something the wrong way. ...
