Matt completed a Higher Diploma in Guitar back in 2007 when BIMM Brighton was the only campus in existence! The course is now known as the Artist Development Diploma in Music Performance. Since then, he’s moved into the industrious world of product development and sales at one of the most well known guitar product brands in the world – BOSS.
Matt’s official title at the Roland Corporation subdivision is ‘Assistant European Product Manager for Boss Guitar Products at Roland Europe’. The role takes him all over the world, including a recent trip to BOSS HQ in Japan, where he worked alongside the global marketing team in product development. There, his opinions directly influenced products which will later be utilised by musicians all over the world! He still remembers his time at BIMM.
“While I was never the greatest player, I listened hard to the lessons that weren’t just about the fretboard, taking notes in Business classes about how people have succeeded without becoming global superstars.”
He obviously listened well! We wish Matt every success with his career and look forward to seeing how it progresses.
