This lead to Matt's tenure at Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts. From there Matt moved to Philadelphia where his music studies really began at Ortliebs Jazz Haus . A few nights here and there turned into a year of playing almost every night. Matthew considers himself an East Coast player, having learned how to really play jazz in Philly.
