"Matthew is a gifted teacher whose guidance helps his students find their own 'brand' of meditation. Without Matthew's insight, I would never have discovered or explored music-supported meditation. Chanting a mantra while accompanied by Matthew playing his harmonium was an absolutely wonderful, opening experience. I look forward to future experiences!"
