Matt Sickels is an educator, composer and performer from Ohio, who has been playing since the age of 12. Throughout his school years, he performed whenever possible, and went on to study from the likes of Lee Busch, Carl Culpepper and Randy Hoexter. Matt has become an incredibly well-rounded fusion player and is looking to follow in the footsteps of his tutors. His advanced fusion licks give you ideas on how to break up arpeggios, create new rhythms and use superimposition in your playing for an outside feel. A talented player with a lot to give.
