I have two passions in life: Music and helping others. Teaching music is the best of both worlds for me. My goal with music has always been to inspire others the way other great musicians have inspired me. I believe music lessons can benefit everyone in someway. Music is a combination of art and math and is a positive way for anyone to express themselves. Can you imagine a world without it? How boring and monotonous!

Hi! My name is Matt and I'd love to be your new drum instructor. I have 5 years experience teaching kids and adults of all playing levels. Music is my only job - I'm always looking for ways to improve and share my passion for the drums with my students. I'm a working session/performing/teaching drummer. I went to both Berklee School of Music in Boston and M.I. here in LA and have earned a Bachelor of Arts. Since then I've been touring and working with people like producer Mike Clink (Guns n' Roses) and J.R. Richards (Dishwalla). Also check out my band to get a better feel of who I am: I've got a studio in Tarzana (off the 101) thats fully set up with 2 drum sets, or I can come to you. Thanks for your time, hope to speak with you soon. -Matt
