He is a member of ASCAP.

Matthew received the Aaron Copland scholarship to attend The Conducting Institute's Composer/Conductor Program at Bard College. His numerous compositions include symphonic works, several concerti, choral works, incidental music for plays and various events, several songs, etc. His choral music publisher is E.C. Schirmer. Matthew is particularly fond of his Concerto for Toy Piano and Orchestra, commissioned by Keith Kirchoff, which received a standing ovation at its premiere in Boston in May of 2004. In the words of toy pianist Margaret Leng Tan, "It is delightfully convincing and well orchestrated so the toy piano can emerge as soloist."
