Matthew Pierce | Becoming a Music Composer

Share this story
1 minute read

Matthew Pierce moved to New York City to “find fame and fortune,” but he felt like there was something he was missing. Then he met a guitarist and began writing music. One tip the Kansas City Ballet’s music composer for “The Wizard of Oz” offers is to master an instrument, because it gives you the tools and confidence to explore music in any way.

Every Tuesday and Thursday through Oct. 12, Flatland looks at the various people and professions that go into creating “The Wizard of Oz.” Follow #MeDorothyDoc on Twitter and Facebook, and look for KCPT’s documentary, “Me, Dorothy…and This Road to Oz,” at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 on KCPT.
