Kevin Vu

I teach Clarinet, Saxophone, and Piano. I recently graduated from Temple University with a BM in Clarinet Performance, where I studied clarinet with Sam Caviezel (Philadelphia Orchestra), saxophone with Matt Levy (Prism Quartet), and woodwind doubling and jazz with Ed Joffe (Broadway).  I am currently working as a freelance clarinet, saxophone, and flute player and have performed in many of the top theaters in Philadelphia, including the Arden Theatre Company, Bristol Riverside Theatre, Delaware Theatre Company, 11th Hour Theatre Company, and the Media Theatre.  I am equally passionate about all of the instruments I perform on, as well as the varied styles that appear in musical theater (classical, jazz, commercial, etc.).  My teaching philosophy is that the process directly influences the result, so I like to focus on developing good practicing habits and developing a genuine love of music.  In addition to woodwinds, I also studied piano and enjoy the instrument quite a bit! - Read More About Kevin

Gabe Preston

I teach Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute, Oboe, Bassoon. Born and raised in the Philly area, I am a woodwind multi-instrumentalist and composer currently finishing the master's program in music at Temple University. While I primarily studied classical repertoire throughout middle/high school and early in college at Temple, I eventually peaked an interest in jazz to the point where I switched my major during freshman year of college. In general, I'm open to playing all styles of music, and I always try to prepare my students to be able to play as many styles of music as possible, through emphasis on being able to play with a convincing sound and sense of rhythm, as well as other important basic concepts.

Matt Culbertson

I teach piano, voice, and clarinet. I am a pianist, accompanist, and teacher that graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from Montclair State University. I’ve been blessed with incredible mentors and teachers my whole life, and I owe my success to them, and that’s one of the main reasons why I teach. After years as a student of several music education programs within Essex County, I moved on to teaching private lessons for all ages and all styles. I have performed throughout Northern New Jersey and New York, including Steinway Hall and Carnegie Hall. Now, after moving to Philadelphia, I intend to build my reputation among the educators and collaborators and continue my own education and artistry in music. - Read More About Matt
