    As a professional flutist, it meant a lot to me that my wedding music be unique and performed beautifully, and Matt completely surpassed my expectations. Matt was responsive, helpful and easy to work with throughout the process. I was married in a Catholic Church with picky music director, but Matt was incredibly flexible with our music selections, even learning/arranging 3 pieces I requested that he hadn't played before. He sent me previews of how the music would sound, and accommodated my requests for faster/slower tempos. Matt's playing for my wedding ceremony was beautiful, and I would highly recommend him!

    Matthew is an outstanding musician and his gentle presence made my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception elegant, exceptional, and joy-filled. He gave us memorable moments, as the couple danced together, they shared a dance with stepdad and mom, I danced with my big brother and my husband.

    Matthew is incredibly talented and super professional. We hired him to play at our wedding ceremony & cocktail hour and we could not have asked for a better fit for our big day! Matthew was super responsive via e-mail and phone leading up to the wedding. He brought a PA & wireless mic so that we could use it for the ceremony as well which was immensely helpful!

    Our guests raved about him (and still are). The music was so beautiful and he has an excellent selection to choose from (classical, jazz, pop, he even plays the theme from the movie UP!)

    Thank you Matt for being part of our day! We cannot thank you enough!
