Music Lessons & Rhythm Revelations

Join us for an exploration about what music can teach us about being in harmony, moving in rhythm, and making a difference.

  • Music is about call and response: Lifting your voice and answering back in dialogue
  • Music is about practicing: Learning new skills, trying the hard things, teaching each other how to do the impossible
  • Music is about community and covenant: Listening deeply and moving together
  • Music is about collective action: Each person plays their role to create something greater than the sum of their parts.

Through song and rhythm, story and reflection, we'll explore what a radically inclusive, spiritually alive, and justice-centered movement of Unitarian Universalism looks like.

BioMatt is a lifelong UU who lives in Boston and travels as an itinerant worship leader, bringing the good news of Unitarian Universalism to hundreds congregations all over the country.

He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2004, where he studied hand drumming and world music. Matt has been a keynote speaker for the JPD worship arts festival, Ohio Summer Institute, Allies for Racial Equity national conference, and the annual meeting of the Canadian Unitarian Council. He has also led music for the most of the last fifteen General Assemblies of the UUA.

Matt is a founding worship leader and current Director of Operations for Sanctuary Boston, a contemporary worship community in Boston. He was also a founding member of the Lucy Stone Cooperative and several other cooperatives in the Boston area. 

He is currently an organizer of the UU Songleaders Convergence, a gathering for all UU’s who love community singing to share skills, best practices, and of course, songs, in order to build a more musical movement together.
