From Matt: “Major life update: I’m moving to New York City in August to pursue new & exciting opportunities in jazz, teaching, and musical theatre! After a week of interviews and apartment hunting, I’ve accepted a job offer at “Keys To Success,” a piano school in Brooklyn, and will find a sublet in Manhattan while I continue to look for a permanent place. Those of you that know me, know that I’ve dreamed of living in NYC since I was a little kid. Now that dream is finally coming true!”
