“Music with Mr. Matt is an interactive, fun and  unforgettable experience. His performances foster a love of music in children. Every child is an active participant in his class, and the interaction between Mr. Matt and the children will bring a smile to all who attend his session. Mr. Matt's love for music and for teaching children is infectious. Don't be surprised if, as an adult, you join in with the same liveliness as the children.”
