About Matthew

I am a graduate of Berklee College of music with a degree in music performance on the saxopone. I have performed in a variety of different setting including jazz big-bands, jazz small groups, rock bands, along side singer-songwriters, street performing, musicals, theme parks, churches, social events to name a few. At Berklee I studied with accomplished jazz and session saxophonist Dino Govoni, Blood Sweat & Tears saxophonist Fred Lipsius, and Beyonce saxophonist Tia Fuller among others. I have had the opportunity to perform with modern jazz greats such as Stefon Harris, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jimmy Greene, Curtis Fuller, Lizz Write, and Marvin Stamm. My teaching backround includes tutoring theory at Berklee, teaching independent private lessons and working at a private studio based in Denver, CO which included intrument lessons, a masterclass on performance skills, and directing and providing accomaniment for recitals. I have 16 years of performing experience and 5 years of teaching experience. I'm excited to get to know my students and help them grow as musicians
