The Voice’s Matt McAndrew is one of the only contestants on this season who has spent any time talking about taking music classes at school. Not only that, but he also teaches music at a music school in Philadelphia. In our exclusive interview, Leading Notes’ Nick Jaworski chats with Matt about his musial background, what he’s learned from The Voice, his feelings about his blind audition performance and SO much more. (He even gets a Charles Ives reference in there.)
