At the Child Care Institute, ‘Matt the Music Man’ is nothing short of a ROCKSTAR! The children and families are always excited to see him walk through the door. Matt’s love for working with young children is evident in every performance. His interactive drum sessions are a real favorite! Matt delights his audience with his guitar playing, sense of humor, singing all the children’s favorites as well as original songs! He brings so many favorite characters to life with puppets and props! Learning to love music is Matt’s gift to all!”

Welcome to the website of a truly one of kind children's performer. "Matt The Music Man" has been performing at schools, libraries, camps of all types in the Long Island/NYC area for over 15 years. As an early childhood teacher, and a professional musician, Matt has combined both of his worlds to create an original and unique music show for children and families.

For the first time, Matt is expanding his performances to a more regional level. Relatives and word of mouth references have always brought in phone calls from Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts. People have always asked, "will you travel outside of New York?" Today, Matt is setting up shows for 2016-2017 nationwide to bring his love of music to children all around the nation. Contact us for more information on bringing "Matt The Music Man" to your school, camp, or program.

His upcoming cd is entitled "I'm Just a Kid." This cd brings together the music styles of folk, jazz, blues, and world music. The lyrics are upbeat, positive, fun, and catchy! Songs include "All When I Grow Up", The Long Island Railroad Song", "This Little Light of Mine", "Make The Best of This Day",  "Great Big World", "Road Trip", and much much more. Stay tuned for a Fall 2016 release!
