betwixt code and music

And in this corner...

I am Mike Mathew and you have stumbled into my corner of the interwebs. Welcome!

In the case that you don't know me, please go find my
About page and learn more there. If I already know you, then we should probably talk more often. Please send a text that reads, "Hello, Michael!"

For a long, long while I have been meaning to get a space set up to make words appear on the internet.
Here it is.
It has finally arrived.
We have it now.

I foresee many posts forthcoming about both computer programming/coding and music/education and probably just life in general. I would very much appreciate any comments or correspondence you might care to share. As I become a worldwide internet sensation, I cannot guarantee a response in a timely manner. (Actually, I will probably be playing with my kids or reading a documentation file about something!)

I certainly do not purport to know all things, but I have a decent amount of wisdom and experience to share regarding some things. As a percussionist, I have some mastery over most of the domains. As a percussion teacher, I have a literal ton of experience across many skill levels and types of communities. As a coder/hacker, I am a unique wide-eyed newbie!

Let's get down to business. Next up is why I am switching careers…
