My name is Matt Masie and I am the percussion instructor at Music & Arts. I carry an M.A. in Music Performance from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois as well as a B.A. in Music Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently performing with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Charleston Stage, and North Charleston Pops Orchestra.
I have been actively involved with the teaching community in Charleston since 2003. I currently teach with the Leonard School of Music and Hungry Monk Music, and I have taught percussion at the Thomas Cario Middle School Lesson Academy. My teaching styles include rock, jazz, funk, and classical percussion. I believe that music should be taught for the sake of music itself. As a teacher, it is my mission to pass on to my students the love and joy from creating music. If my students eventually decide not to pursue a career in music, I hope that they will always find a way to make it a part of their lives.
