Matt graduated from the Musicians Institute in 2012 with a degree in drum performance. There he was able to immerse himself in music, get hands-on training and learn from world-class instructors. Through the school, he met bandmates, recorded for different artists and learned how to be an educator. His musical journey has brought him to “The Live Music Capitol of the World”, Austin TX, where he makes a living playing music professionally. When Matt was in music school, he started teaching family members and friends the material he was taught because he was so excited about it. That sparked his interest in teaching private lessons, which he has now been doing for the last seven years. He loves sharing what he knows about music with his students and is most fulfilled when he sees students have those moments where things are clicking for them musically. He is passionate about helping students achieve their musical goals.
