Matt started learning music by sitting next to his older siblings as they practiced accordion and piano. He participated in band, choir and musical theatre in school. He has earned a Bachelor's in Music Education from the University of Utah (2010), and a Master's in Music Education from Carnegie Mellon University (2016). He has taught K-12 in many different schools and classes. Whether it's playing music with his family at home, or directing a choir, music has always been a part of Matt's life. Matt wants people of all walks of life, of all ages, in all career fields to be able to unwind and enjoy creating music and theatre on or off stage.
