Matthew grew up with the influences of Billy Joel, Elton John, and Jason Robert Brown – and quickly embraced jazz piano as well. Matthew
has played with a range of bands – as early as the Robert Frost Middle School Jazz Band in Rockville, MD, and as recently as the Starlight Orchestra in Washington, DC.
Beyond jazz bands, Matthew music directed and played for musical theater pit orchestras in the greater Washington, DC area. He also dabbles with vocals, melodica, harmonica, guitar, and percussion.
A recent transplant to Colorado, Matthew is excited to be on the sunny side of the country with the Flatirons Jazz Orchestra.
