Bag Talk Session With Matthew Head: From Teacher to Emmy-Winning Film Composer

New Bag Talk Session With Matthew Head on Trusting The Process, Passion Vs. Purpose, The importance music plays in films, lasting marriage and having a father figure on the journey. Matthew worked with Middle School kids in order to help them get back on track. He realized he could only communicate with them through music and sports, and once he used these ice breakers, that’s when the real learning started. While teaching, he was composing on the side and ended up winning an Emmy award for his work on the documentary “Melissa’s Story.” The principal encouraged Matthew to pursue music full-time, in order to show the students that you can make it from anywhere. Despite the pressure to move to LA, Matthew decided to stay in Atlanta and began composing music full time. Since making the switch, Matthew now has two Grammy nominations and an NAACP Image Award for his work on “Greenleaf” as a Music Producer, composed Season 1 of the hit Starz series “P-Valley,” and has multiple projects being released in 2021: PBS and WETA’s docuseries “The Black Church” (Feb 16 & 17), “Robin Roberts Presents: Mahalia” (April 3), and season 3 of “Step Up” Connect: @MattHeadMusic @TeraChantelle @BagTalkSession --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/terachantelle/support
