Knowing that he had a passion for music, Matt volunteered when the need arose for a drummer at his congregation.  The song he was asked to play at the audition was the first song he ever played behind a drum set and somehow he became Temple Aron HaKodesh's drummer at the age of 13.  Since then, he has played for Carmen Licciardello, Greg Silverman, Beckah Shae, and Paul Wilbur.  He led youth ministry at his congregation for four years and has served in worship and youth leadership for YMJA retreats and conferences.  Matthew believes that this generation of Messianic worship leaders and musicians have the potential to greatly impact the culture of worship music and wants to help see that impact come to fruition.
