ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Jazz Performance, Manhattan School of Music

Overview:
I firmly believe that, as a professional musician, it is obligatory to teach and pass on the knowledge of your craft to others who are seeking the knowledge. I have been a full time performing artist my entire working adult life (since 1995). I have traveled the world performing with artists in the worlds of Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Rock, and even EDM. I’m one of the lucky few who have been able to support a family as a professional working musician. I am extremely passionate about teaching and passing on the knowledge that I’ve gained along the way. Throughout my performing career I have always taught privately and can even proudly say that a few of my former students have become working pros as well!
EXPERIENCE
Matt has been a professional musician since 1995. He has studied with Randy Knudsen, Dom Famularo, Al Miller, Ralph Peterson, Jr., John Riley, Carlos “Go-Go” Gomez and many other notable drummers and percussionists. He received a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music in 1999.  He can be heard on countless recordings featuring a wide variety of musical styles such as Jazz, Heavy Metal, Afro-Cuban folkloric, Afro-Latino Soul, R&B, Hop-Hop,  Rock, Folk, and everything in between! Currently, Matt is a member of Coincidence Machine and The Nate Lucas All-Stars. He also works as a music consultant producing various projects in his home studio "PPJ studios" named in honor of his grandfather who was a sound engineer for CBS. Matt is currently signed to AJB Productions. Matt has been teaching private lessons on drumset, latin percussion (including Bata drums) since 1992.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
