About Dr. Nelly

Welcome! My name is Nelly Matova, but the students call me Dr. Nelly. I started studying music when I was seven years old and since then, I haven't stopped learning about music. After years of daily practice, performances, and education
(I hold a Master of Music and a Doctor of Musical Arts Degrees,) I have lots of information to share with you.      

I teach beginners to advanced students of all ages, and perform regularly as a soloist, choir conductor, accompanist, and singer.

I will guide you, lead you and inspire you to find an unexpected side of you. My goal is not only to teach you how to play and understand music, but to learn how to enjoy playing music when on your own.

Most importantly, I will inspire you to become a passionate music lover and music advocate for life!


You can see me in my new studio: 


206 N. Randolph St,
