Finding his way through rhythm, Matthew completed a Bachelor of Music Performance degree, and up until now has played in a multitude of bands of various genres, including Rock, Blues, Funk, Pop, Punk, Jazz Fusion, Folk, Country, Hip Hop, Trip hop, while also arranging and writing music in collaboration.
Over the years Matthew has developed himself to execute his own rhythmical voice in a stealthy, but powerful expression, and his technical skill is characterized by a fluid like style.
His development underlines his teaching method; whereby he encourages students own formation of style and character in their musical expression, to deliver a distinct feel to any piece of music they apply themselves to.
Off the kit, Matthew is also majoring in English and philosophy with a deep focus on existentialism, metaphysics, ethics, and other subjects on the human condition in life. His wide openness to experience is a measure of his interest and practice in art, poetry, literature, music and philosophy, which enters in his teaching habits to inspire his students.
