DRUMMEr, ENTREPrENEUR, AND MUSIC EDUCATOR

Sharing my knowledge with others is one of the most fun and inspiring things I get to do on a daily basis, and when a student really understands the information I’ve shared, then takes it and runs with it, there is no greater reward! That’s why I teach.

Matt's go-to resources and interesting stuff he loves

Matt Halpern's Curated Collection


 

Matt's go-to resources and interesting stuff he loves

Book - The Survivors Club by Ben Sherwood

"This book is extremely inspiring in a way that isn't quite typical. As you read you are told stories of human survival, and some of them are pretty unbelievable. It's also quite educational - if you want to learn the best ways to improve your chances of survival in a plane crash then this one's for you!" - MH

Car - Ford Explorer Sport

"I don't know what it is, or why, but I am in love with this car. It's just cool. And VERY FUN to drive. I'm not even a big car guy, but ever since I laid my eyes on this beauty, I knew it had to be mine. And now it is! What's your favorite car?"   - MH

TV Show - Shark Tank

"This show is so much fun! I get to hear about new companies, get inspired by driven entrepreneurs, and learn from some of the most well educated, savvy investors in the world. If you're thinking about starting a business, or simply want to see creative ingenuity, then hop in the tank and watch with me!" - MH


Snare Drum - Mapex Black Panther Wraith

"It's time for shameless self-promotion! The Wraith is my FAVORITE snare drum, because I was lucky enough to design it! How cool is that!? In all seriousness though, if you're a drummer (or if you know a drummer) looking for a professional snare drum for both live and studio performances, then this one's for you. It's extremely responsive, versatile, and tough. Since I got my hands on it I haven't performed a show or recorded even one track without it. Check it out!" - MH

Food - "The Boss Dawg" at Smoke in Baltimore, MD

"I love food. Period. I could eat all day long, so being at home in Baltimore can be dangerous. Why, you ask? Because... The Boss Dawg. THIS. SANDWICH. IS. AMAZING. A freshly cooked bun, crispy fried onion, pickle, white cheddar, bacon, pulled pork, pineapple jalapeño bbq sauce... it's perfect. Try it now, thank me later." - MH
