Matthew Schroeder is a seasoned performer, guitar educator, and WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) winning guitarist who has a depth in his playing resulting from a life long pursuit of music and the guitar. From the age of two when his parents had to replace worn out records, to his high school years spent playing in rock bands, Matt has diligently focused on the guitar. It was after high school Matt discovered fingerstyle artists like Michael Hedges, Leo Kottke and Billy McLaughlin, who charted a solo guitar course outside of the traditional jazz or classical traditions, and gave him a glimpse of his future.
Captivated by this music, Matt enrolled in the short-lived cooperative guitar program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee/Wisconsin Conservatory of Music majoring in American fingerstyle guitar; the only institution in the world to offer such degree. There, he worked with many of the finest guitarists in the world, performing in master classes with Pierre Bensusan, Benjamin Verdery, Pat Donohue, Billy McLaughlin, and Alex DeGrassi, as well as studying one on one with local legends John Stropes, Don Linke and Peter Roller.
