Hear Matt’s messages about self-confidence and respect through music and stories. Children also learn about music and instruments.
Matt encourages children to sing and clap along. They can even dance with Pat the Platypus or try out a variety of Matt's instruments.
Music, humour, stories, fun lyrics, a variety of instruments, puppets and other surprises... It's easy to see how much Matt enjoys performing and that reflects directly on the audience!
Students write their own song and play it with Matt! All students receive Matt's guide to writing a song and an activity sheet to take home! Workshops are approximately 45 minutes with 30 kids max.
Matt explains how he writes his songs and gives them a mini-performance. Then Children write their very own song and play it with Matt! Depending on the class age, students can also make a homemade instrument, do a special colouring activity or learn songwriting in more depth. These workshops are interactive and fun for ALL ages, even for older students, as the activities are made age appropriate.
School Song Workshop
Does your school have an official song? During this workshop, Matt helps students write their very own school song to show their school spirit! The song can then be used to sing at assemblies or other school events. It can be set to original music or to an existing song of your choice. Matt also talks about songwriting in general and performs some other songs for the group. Super fun!
JR HIGH & HIGH SCHOOL SHOWS!
Matt played non-children's music for about 20 years prior to the kids music scene! Matt drops the kids "Music Man" name and performs a variety of songs for older students, from rock covers, to original acoustic songs. Matt talks about his past struggles growing up and how he came to overcome his fears by becoming self-confident through music and work experience. It's a moving performance!
