Hi I'm Matthew

I am a musician and I am a Mormon.

About Me

If it has anything to do with music then I am involved with it. I arrange, compose, teach, perform and practice music. I have a Bachelors of Music in Instrumental Performance emphasizing in percussion. I also have a Masters of Music with an emphasis in music education. I even met my wife in the college marching band. If I can pull myself away from my instruments, I enjoy reading and also playing more music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a perfect person. The knowledge that I am able to repent because of what my Savior did for me is priceless. Because of this and the promises I have made with my Heavenly Father, I know that I will be with my family for all of time. I am so happy that this sealing power and knowledge was brought back to earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. And knowing that there is a prophet on earth today to help us in these difficult times brings me great comfort.

How I live my faith

I am actively involved with my home ward. I teach and help organize events for the younger adult men. I am able to get out and meet with people in our community and make sure they are doing well. As often as I am able, I perform for my ward, either with an instrument or my voice. I even arrange music to be played at church.
