About Me:
 Matt Jardim

  This is my 11th year teaching in Mountain Lakes and my 23nd year as a public school music teacher. I am currently teaching fourth and fifth grade general music and strings at Wildwood as well as Guitar Class at the high school. Before coming to Mountain Lakes, I taught guitar classes for many years at Elizabeth High School. I have a B.A in jazz performance from Rutgers and an M.A. in music education from New Jersey City University. I have performed in many different musical genres including jazz, rock, r&b and solo classical guitar. I am delighted to be in Mountain Lakes because of the the generous support and advocacy shown to the arts by the community and the school administration and staff. Most of all, the students here are talented and a pleasure to teach.
 
   I have been performing for many years as a guitarist in several bands and as a soloist. The style I mostly enjoy playing is jazz but I have also worked in R&B, Funk and wedding bands. I also play solo classical guitar for private parties. Click the media player below to hear a sample of my jazz trio.
