Matt grew up in small-town Iowa, and somehow found his way to Luther College. Singing with Weston Noble, he was inspired to make music and teaching his career.
After a Master’s degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Iowa, Matt returned to the choir world, first as the 6-12 vocal music director at North-Linn Community Schools. He now teaches 9-12 vocal music at Xavier H.S. in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Matt has been fortunate to have so many wonderful choral experiences in his life, and he hopes to now give back by sharing those experiences with other directors.
