Get your study on

I’ve been fortunate enough to teach two classes with the great folks over at CreativeLive. The first class, “The Working Musician Playbook” will undoubtably help you navigate this crazy music business and give you the tools to come out on top. The second class, “Studio Pass: Periphery” brings you into the studio with me and Nolly where we show you our methods for everything from drum tuning and microphone set up to tracking and mixing a full Periphery song.

Drum Sticks

Promark Matt Halpern Signature Drumsticks

Over the past two years I’ve been working with Promark to develop a drum stick that truly can become an extension of your body on the drums. Drumming is completely physical so it’s paramount to have a stick that can move the way you do. My signature stick aims to accomplish just that. With a sturdy base, short taper, and wide tip you’ll be able to wield this seemingly heavy drum stick with ease while saying to yourself “I can’t believe it’s not heavier”… Check it out here!

Matt Halpern Signature Wraith

Mapex Drums and I released the Wraith back in 2015 and it’s since found it’s way on to countless recordings, in venues all over the world, and has won multiple awards including Snare Drum of the Year in the Rhythm Magazine’s online poll. I don’t play any gig without this snare drum and you shouldn’t either.
