Award-winning pianist Matt Peterson possesses a mastery of classical, jazz, pop, R&b, soul, and 70's music. He brings a unique enthusiasm and professionalism to every event he plays. From Chopin to Frank Sinatra to Billy Joel to Stevie Wonder, Matt brings a special attention to detail and creative flair to everything he performs. His encyclopedic repertoire allows him to meet the specific needs of each event and take song requests. Below is just a small sampling of some of his favorites - his repertoire includes over 3000 tunes and his policy includes learning as many as 20 new tunes not in his repertoire for any event. Matt prides himself on his customer service, punctuality and professionalism, making sure that each guest's musical experience is an enjoyable one.

Matt has a Bachelor's Degree in Classical Piano from Wheaton College and a Masters Degree in Jazz Piano from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, where he studied under the Artistic Excellence Scholarship. During his undergraduate studies, he was the overall winner of the 2009 Ben Heppner Concerto Competition, performing Gershwin's Concerto in F with a full symphony orchestra. In addition to extensive classical and jazz performance experience, he has played for musical theater productions and film scores, as well as for weddings, corporate events, private parties, and receptions. Matt has played regularly at restaurants in Seattle, Chicago, and Bloomington, and Los Angeles. In the summer of 2013, he played piano in the All-American College Band at Disneyland under Ron McCurdy. He was an invited performer to the 2013 Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival. He looks forward to working with you!

I almost can't believe how perfect Matt was for our event. I can reccomend him enthusiastically! His talent is undeniable; and beyond that, he is a true professional. He knew exactly how to create the atmosphere we were looking for. At the same time, those who wanted to take time to listen closely to him, enjoyed a rare treat! Our event went long and Matt stepped up and stayed late as well. If you need great music, and a consummate professional entertainer, I would urge to to contact Matt Peterson. With his level of talent, I am certain that he will not be available for long. Instead of playing at events, he will be on tour around the world!
