Matt Geer

Theory, composition and exams tutor

Matt Geer is a composer and organist from Hastings, England. His music engages with philosophical questions around how we experience time and how our consciousness fluctuates during a piece of music. Matt is studying for a PhD in music theory and composition at Queen's University Belfast under Simon Mawhinney and Piers Hellawell, where he also teaches. He completed his undergraduate studies in composition on a scholarship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under James Weeks and Laurence Crane where he graduated in July 2020. At the Guildhall, he was composer in association with the City Chamber Choir and had his music performed and workshopped by the likes of the BBC singers, EXAUDI, Line Upon Line, Lakeside Brass, musicians from the LPO, the clarinettist Heather Roche and the contemporary pianist Satoko Inoue. He is currently composer-in-residence with the London Baroque Orchestra and the South-East Symphony Orchestra. Matt also has an interest in contemporary organ music. He studied organ through the Royal College of Organists at the University of Sussex under James Lloyd Thomas and under Simon Williams at St George's, Hanover Square.
