"Working with Matt and members of the New Orleans Jazz Revival Band inspired our students and helped them take their musicianship to new levels. Reflecting the UBUNTU spirit, Matt's arrangement of Colors of the Wind gave our young musicians the rare opportunity for authentic collaboration -orchestra, band, and chorus all coming together as a community of learners. Thank you, Matt, for sharing your gifts, and for instilling the love and transforming power of music as we all work to make a difference in the lives of our students."
