ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

I am a graduate of the Armed Forces School of Music and a former member of the US Army Band. I have studied privately with some of the finest educators in the country.

Overview:

Best known for his current work behind contemporary singer-songwriters like Ryan Humbert, Tracey Thomas, and Benjamin Payne, Matt’s musical journey began at a young age, armed with a pair of wooden spoons and any pot, pan, bucket, and box he could get his hands on.

Born to a working class family in suburban Los Angeles, Matt began formal study at the age of nine and progressed rapidly through the curriculum all through elementary, junior high, and high school where he achieved consistent first chair honors in marching, concert, jazz, and percussion ensembles. After graduation, he attended the Armed Forces School of Music and served four years as a member of the prestigious 434th US Army Band.

After his discharge in 1995, Matt moved to Akron, OH and began the real business of paying his dues in original bands, clubs, wedding bands,  theaters, demo sessions, and countless one nighters. This was also the period when he began his career as a teacher, both privately and as an adjunct faculty member for the Tuscarawas Valley School District, where his students and ensembles were awarded the highest honors at the district and state level.

When not behind the drums, Matt spends considerable time repairing and restoring drums, and writing a regular column for Not So Modern Drummer Magazine.

EXPERIENCE

I have been a teacher for nearly 20 years and have taught both privately and in the public school systems.

METHODS USED

Lessons focus on strong fundamental skills, including technique and reading. Popular texts are supplemented with single sheets and multimedia to provide a comprehensive vocabulary of styles and approaches to performing.

LESSON STYLE

Lessons are kept upbeat and positive with an emphasis on continuous progress and positive reinforcement.

No credit card required.

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.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
