Clifford Drum School offers exceptional education personalized to each individual student. I've been teaching for over 8 years and work with each student to develop lesson plans based on their interests. Lessons take place in a professional environment where students get to learn drumming fundamentals, reading, music theory as well as learning to play their favorite songs by ear. Finally, students will have the opportunity to perform at student recitals as well as learn about recording technology while recording their own drum covers (student performance examples below!). Lessons are also available at the student's home for a nominal fee.

About Matthew C.

Music and education have been two of the most influential things in my life. As a lifelong musician, I've had many mentors and teachers help me through my journey. Those people have made me passionate about being able to share everything I've learned with others.

I am a professional drummer, percussionist, and recording artist. I graduated from Wayne State University with Bachelors in Music and Marketing. Throughout my time in school, I was involved in concert bands as a percussionist, marching band, drum core, as well as many different jazz ensembles.

Currently, I'm working full time as a performing artist and music educator, teaching students of all ages and skill levels. I really value playing in a wide variety of styles of music and am comfortable teaching anytime from Pop, Rock, Metal, Alternative, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, and R&B.

Matt is easily one of the most talented drummers I've ever had the pleasure of playing with. I also know that his calm demeanor makes him an excellent teacher. I can't say enough good things about him.
