Matt began organ lessons with Jerry Taylor, was accepted into Juilliard to study with Paul Jacobs and spent two years as a Director of Music in New York before returning to Cincinnati and now Nashville. He sang in the Westminster Choir during his Wright State days and has composed several choral anthems that are sung by major choirs.


Matthew Phelps is the Minister of Music at West End United Methodist Church in Nashville, TN.  At West End he conducts the Chancel Choir and oversees a multi-faceted music department for children, youth, and adults. Dr. Phelps’ performances have been described as “beautifully prepared,”   “beautifully shaped,” and “moving and deeply meaningful.” He is a Cincinnati native where he finished his Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Conducting from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati.
