Matt Rogers has been playing the Chapman Stick since 1995 and professionally since 2006. For over ten years, he’s played the art festival circuit; first with his student and partner, Mark White. In the last two or three years, he set out on an Open Road Tour playing his music at Art and Craft Festivals from Arizona to Maine and everywhere in between. This book is the answer to the questions he is consistently asked as well as a little bit about where his melodies come from, how he got introduced to the instrument, and about the instrument itself. Every musician, every instrument have a bond, like Harry Potter to his wand. This is Matt’s story. Part textbook, part info guide, part narrative; there is a little something for everyone.
