TIFEM Teacher Shout Outs – Matt Giffin

Giff, as we like to call him, is a bright and gifted young musician who hails all the way from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

He is quickly building momentum and gaining recognition as a pianist and electronic music.

Very recently, Matt performed in a live setting for a TEDTalks episode.

Matt was featured on CBC Radio-3 backing up Toronto Hip Hop luminary, D-Sisive. He is a cast member on the Global Television program, “Canada Sings”.

Our man Giff is also a very talented producer and performed production duties on Mikko Hilden’s 2011 jazz release called “Nova Scotia”, out on Addo records.

Matt also writes and shares his ideas about music and life in a blog on his website. http://mattgiffin.com/.

A well respected member of our faculty, Matt is surely someone to watch.

He is about ten thousand times as smart as our current Mayor and he may even be Prime Minister some day.
