Matthew is a drummer, composer, and instructor based in Austin TX.
Matthew earned a BFA in Jazz Studies/Percussion Performance from Northern Illinois University, and currently accompanies modern dance classes at University of Texas at Austin.
A major aspect of his teaching style is “Music begat theory.” Matthew utilizes his multi-instrumentalism to jam along with students in order for them to get a feel for playing in a live group setting. His in-depth curriculum sparks growth and development on the drum set while reaching out to all aspects within the percussive realm and beyond, including piano, electronic music and the recording arts.
