Hi, I'm Matt.  I'm a composer, songwriter, trumpet player, orchestrator, sequencer, and producer.  I bring over ten years of writing experience, and over fifteen years of performing experience to each project I tackle.

I studied jazz at UNLV, where I had the privilege of learning from trumpet legend Bobby Shew. I also got to play with The Manhattan Transfer, Forbidden Broadway, Don Menza, and Chris Potter. While I was living in Las Vegas, I arranged jazz and ska music, and also composed orchestral music of my own.

I continued my studies at BYU with an emphasis in commercial music. It was there that I developed a love for songwriting and film scoring.  I scored several student films, both on my own and in collaboration with other students. I also played trumpet with the BYU Wind Symphony and the BYU Young Ambassadors Show Band.  After graduating, I worked as a producer for Aztec Showtrax, and composed and arranged music for the Salt Lake Pops Orchestra and Elacor - The Electro-Acoustic Orchestra.

Now, I'm writing and producing educational songs for kids on my YouTube channel, Hopscotch, making music videos with my band, The Hoover Jam, and writing for musical theatre.

My studio is located in Provo, Utah, where my wife, son, and I live.
