About Me

 Hello! My name is Matt and I'm a Senior Sales Associate here at the Music & Arts in South Paramus! Music has been an extremely important part of my life since a very early age. I began to take an interest in the drums before I was even able to walk and would often sit on my uncles lap behind his drums. I began taking formal lessons at age eight and performing at many locations around my hometown in Upstate New York. I moved to New Jersey in 2012 to study jazz at William Paterson University and received my BM in 2016. I now maintain an active performance schedule in North Jersey and New York. Piano has become a secondary instrument to me and I also can play a little bass and guitar, so I would love to be able to help you with any questions regarding these instruments!

Please come in the store and talk music!
