Matt's column The BIG Deal with Matt Starr in Drumhead Magazine helps musicians navigate the music business as well as understand the difference between "playing a drum roll and getting paid to play a drum roll'. His workshop Turning Passion Into A Career has taken Matt around the world speaking to musicians and non-musicians in both academic and corporate settings.
