“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!”
— Donna Tudda, Hofstra University Daycare, Hempstead, NY
