I was so sad to hear about Matt’s passing. I am a teaching assistant at Rosendale and Matt was fresh on the scene as a music teacher with so much enthusiasm and promise. We chatted quite a bit over the year that he was with us. I know he loved his family because we spoke about that on a few occasions. Matt was so unique and completely carefree. He had a great sense of humor and I am glad we were friends. My older brother ( also into music) passed away 2 years ago and I am sure those two are playing the drums! Matt... you will be missed, my friend.
