Matt is a fun and energetic educator that strives to inspire growth and creativity in all of his students. His unique approach to drumming offers students the ability to speak the language of rhythm and create their own voice on the drums.
The lifelong pursuit of music began for Matt at age 8 when he got his first drum set from his father and quickly began playing along to his favorite music. After playing in bands throughout high school Matt decide to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston where he studied performance and business, graduating in 2009 with a degree in Professional Music.
Matt started his teaching career in 2009 when he began private drum lessons at Robert M. Sides Family Music Center in State College, PA. Quickly private lessons led to teaching and organizing a summer rock music program for students interested in learning about the skills required to play with other musicians. Now State College Rock Camp is an in depth program that involves many different classes and camps for students of all ages and interest levels.
In 2014 Matt started publishing online drum lessons through his website mattpricedrumming.com with the concept of offering his students videos and content related to the topics they learn during their weekly lessons. The vision today is to inspire drummers to find strength through the struggle of practice and to enjoy the art of drumming.
