His students have been the recipients of many recognitions, but most prominent are those of two pupils receiving university music scholarships--the first with an award of $10,000 in 2002, and another with an award of over $4,000 in 2006.  More recently, Matthew had two additional students win scholarship awards exceeding $800 to attend the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp, and a graduating pupil named as a 2010 winner of The  Pontiac-Oakland Symphony Young Artist Competition.

In 2011 Matthew began teaching online with Skype, and by 2012 a young blues & boogie-woogie student of his located in Colorado placed 1st in a 'Stars of Tomorrow' contest, which awarded him financial prizes totaling $2,250, an invitation to perform in a local jazz festival, and a performance and interview appearance on both radio and television.
