About Matthew B.

I'm a performer/instructor residing in Los Angeles,CA. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where I founded the band Synasis with my brother. We played several local shows, as well as opening for national touring artists. While living in Ohio I also attended The Recording Workshop, where I studied audio engineering in both analog and digital applications. Before leaving for LA, I studied music theory and liberal arts at Lakeland Community College. I also studied voice, piano, and guitar at the nearby Fine Arts Association. Since moving to LA, I've completed an AA in Music Performance at The Musicians Institute in Hollywood, as well as performing with a diverse mix of bands around the city. I currently teach with Rowland Heights Unified School District, and several different Montessori Schools.

Matthew teaches preschool music classes with our music company and he’s just wonderful with the young children. He’s enthusiastic, upbeat and gets all the kids singing and dancing along. The kids have so much fun they don’t even know that they’re learning. Matthew has a big repertoire of kids friendly songs and musical fun activities. Matthew is a pleasure to work with. We are so happy to have Matthew as a part of our music family. Jules Moss, JULES MUSIC 4 KIDS, LLC
