Performing music on the classical guitar is Matt's passion. Over the years he has had the pleasure of playing a great quantity of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 20th century. These programs have been inspired by his own musical influences and have been performed nationally and internationally in incredible places such as Peru, Spain, and Italy. Matt is able to bring this unique and intimate concert setting right to your home or event location. Matt has programs that are centered around Spanish music, the baroque era, romantic music of the 20th century, as well as modern contemporary music and pop/jazz arrangements.
Matt has always been deeply enthusiastic about teaching and sharing his deep knowledge of music and the classical guitar with the world. He has organized and performed in a variety of educational events to teach about various aspects of the guitar such as:
- history and evolution of the guitar
- various eras of music (Renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, contemporary, pop and jazz, etc.),
- composition techniques for the guitar
- relaxation and mindfulness techniques for high performance
- pedagogy for teachers
Matt is able to tailor each topic for a unique presentation for your music class, guitar studio, or general audience. They can be presented as lectures, hands-on forums, or a concert + Q&A session.
For a classical guitar masterclass situation, Matt is able to appear solo or with his guitar duo, The Riverside Guitar Duo.
