"Matthew Asti is a pianist and vocalist in the Lehigh Valley. His studies of Yoga and YogaVoice® have helped shape himself and his students into versatile musicians capable of powerful technique and authentic musical expression.
As an undergraduate, Matthew attended a conservatory in England that broadened his knowledge of music through studies of jazz, composition, and community outreach. This culminated in his “Freedom Through Singing” project, which brought free music classes to mental health patients in West Yorkshire. His postgraduate voice studies in Wales focused on children’s voice, spoken voice, motivation theory, Italian opera, acoustics, and ultimately Mongolian & western polyphonic singing.
Currently, Matthew is an artist-lecturer in piano and voice at Moravian University. He also teaches voice and provides music direction at The Pennsylvania Youth Theatre. Amidst his teaching engagements, he can be seen performing throughout the tri-state area with his jazz duo, “Two for Tea”. Matthew holds a master’s degree in voice pedagogy from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, a bachelor's degree in jazz piano from the Leeds Conservatoire, as well as Yoga and Yogavoice® teacher certifications. He is currently enrolled at The YogaLife Institute for an 800 hour certification in comprehensive yoga therapy.
