Mr. Aron Mattes
I love music! I love listening to music, writing music, performing music (singing, guitar, piano, drums, etc.), and teaching music. I love that amazing feeling you get when you work with other musicians to create something together, and I love helping kids learn to do that, too.
This will be my 20th year teaching choir and my 10th year at Frankford! In addition to teaching choir I have a wife (who teaches private voice lessons) and two little dogs (Maggie and Layla) that are awesome! Some of my other interests are playing guitar in a band, playing video games (mostly PC, but some console), and woodworking.
Know Your Why:
Music is one of the most powerful forces in our world. Creating/performing music with other people is an amazing thing unlike any other. I want to give kids a place where they can feel at home and learn to create music and interact with other musicians in a way that builds them up. Music is a common language across the world and I want to help kids learn to express themselves through it.
I will try to be available just about any time you need tutorials. Afternoons are better due to our voices being warmed up (and that my brain is slow in the morning), but if you need a morning time or something just check ahead of time to make sure I am there for you. Usually not on Friday afternoons.
