About Matt Cahill
Matt Cahill is a rogue singer in a family of physicians. During his studies in voice at the Juilliard School, he received his first lessons in the Alexander Technique as part of a curriculum designed to help singers achieve their full potential. Little did he know then, that the Alexander Technique would fill in the gap for him between singer and physician, voice use and rehabilitation, and inspire him, like his family, to dedicate his life to helping people, just in the large space between everything feeling great and in need of urgent medical attention.
Matt currently offers private lessons in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, and enjoys working with students of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. He also continues to sing professionally and launched the Maine based non-profit, Hogfish (www.hogfish.org) a regenerative arts and artist training company with his husband Edwin Cahill.
