Tricotene ,

Impressive! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’m very creative and artistic but not musically inclined so I am very impressed by those who have the talent to compose music. On that note, I think “Composer Talk” was really fun and fascinating and Matthew does a terrific podcast!

Entertaining and Inspiring!

I love the genuine approach from a musician / composer’s perspective. The enthusiasm is out of the park! Very inspiring for young musicians and artists who NEED to be pushed into doing more.
