An Academy alumni has recently released his debut album which pays tribute to the school that first exposed him to jazz music. On May 29th, Matt Dwonszyk (Academy class of 2010) released his debut “Wonderful World” on Truth Revolution Recording. The album contains 12 original tracks and features contribution from two other Academy alumni. The second track on the album is titled “The Academy” and is about how his experience at GHAA has turned him onto Jazz music. The fourth cut is titled “My Soul” and features academy alumni Shenel Johns on vocals and harmonization from Zaccai Curtis, also academy alumni.

While at Academy, Dwonsyzk studied bass under Paul Brown. After graduation, he studied jazz at University of Hartford and received his masters at SUNY Purchase College in New York. He has since worked professionally as a bassist, composer, and orchestrator.
