Teaching since:

I'd love to teach you or your student! I can show and explain how to be more efficient, consistent, and creative while providing a serious academic environment. My philosophy is 'music begat theory', in other words playing music is fun. Connecting with people comes first, while theory and history follows. My lessons explore the entire world of music, while my in-depth drum set curriculum approaches the drum set through all forms of percussion, rock and jazz. I will do lessons in your home, online, or at my studio. I want to share the love and resonance that I have experienced while discovering music. I do what I love and I love what I do!

Matthew is very kind and patient with my son, and very knowledgeable. He is really getting him to think about what drumming is, how drumming works, and how to use his body to control the sound the drums create.

Matt is an excellent teacher and drummer. He is patient, encouraging and positive. I know Matt through his involvement and leadership in Earphoria, a music community here in Austin that provides lessons, rehearsal and performance space, recordings, and lodging. If you have an opportunity to work with Matt, it will be time well spent.
