Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

      Matt is currently a composer in the Advanced BMI Lehman Engel Theatre Workshop, and was the recipient of the First Year Jerry Harrigan Musical Theatre Award in 2019. 

       Matt premiered These Walls, an original 10-minute musical written with Caitlin Collins, at the NYTF Winterfest 2020 festival, winning best short.  The piece was also presented as part of the Sound Bites Festival of 10-Minute Musicals. 

       Fallen Skies, an original musical composed while Matt was at The Boston Conservatory, premiered at the 2016 New York International Fringe Festival. The piece received an Overall Excellence Award for music composition. 

        In December 2017 he premiered a new project, How Christmas Feels, which was performed with the C.I.C Theater Company in Boston.

       Matt holds a B.M. in Music Composition from The Boston Conservatory.  

       Matt served as the Music Supervisor for the 2020 national tour of An American in Paris as well as the 2022 tour of South Pacific.  He was also the Music Director and Conductor of the 2018-19 U.S. and Japan Tour, and Chinese Premiere of A Chorus Line, and he conducted the national tour of 42nd Street in 2017.  Matt has played Keyboard 1 on the 2015 national tour of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and travelled to China for two months as the Associate Music Director and Keyboard 2 player on the 2016 tour of My Fair Lady.  

        Since 2010, Matt has been on staff for the annual summer conservatory at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey, working as an assistant music director, accompanist, and arranger, and is currently the Music Director/Conductor of the program.  

        Matt has experience with teaching music to students and colleagues of all ages, and focuses on integrating accuracy, musicality, interpretation, and technique into every project. 


        Matt created the orchestral reductions used on the 2020/22 national tour of An American in Paris, as well as the 2018-2019/22 U.S. and international tour of A Chorus Line. His choral arrangements have been heard at the Paper Mill Playhouse in the annual New Voices concerts. 
        Additionally, Matt transcribes, transposes, and arranges full songs and audition cuts.  Mashups are his specialty!  His work is clean and accurate, the turn around is very quick, and the rates are reasonable.
        Matt has been playing the piano since age 7, and is well-versed in all musical theater styles, including traditional, jazz, contemporary, rock/pop, etc.  He is a proficient sight-reader and improviser, and can also sight-transpose.  An extremely sensitive accompanist, Matt is comfortable following singers, instrumentalists, and conducting from the piano.
