Greetings! My name is Matthew Maxey and I'll be your deaf teacher/ host as you embark on the journey of how to interpret some of your favorite songs with American Sign Language! I'll be co-hosting this experience with a fellow co-worker that is generationally deaf so that you get the most optimal version of this experience! As a deaf performer that focuses in sign language and music being combined, I have been featured on MTV, CNN, Cole Haan, GQ, RiseUp, and on tour with Chance The Rapper! I started up DEAFinitely Dope a few years ago to try to play an active role in merging mainstream culture and deaf awareness through sign language and music!

I was the only person in my class and thus I feel I got an experience very tailored to my level of ASL experience. I am fairly fluent, but signing a song and learning slang was a new opportunity for me. Matt encouraged me to be more free with my signing, and coached me to think more deeply about the meaning behind each line and how to express that more visually. This was so helpful and something I would have never thought of on my own. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone as it is really fun! Matt has a wonderful personality and can teach anyone to sign a song. I will definitely take another class again soon!

What an amazing experience! Matt was so knowledgeable, funny, and welcoming. I’m pumped to learn more ASL, and I feel like it’s much more accessible. He was a great host, and I’m so glad we got to take his experience! Anyone would be lucky to be Matt’s student!

This was a truly amazing experience. It was such a pleasure to learn from Matt. He worked with three of us and our very different levels of sign language usage. He made me feel comfortable and inspired to continue with learning sign language. This was an unforgettable moment I will cherish forever

Best Investment of my time evvverrrrr!!! Learning to sign music from Matt himself was such a surreal experience. I also learned a bunch of new signs i wouldn't have learned in school. I definitely recommend signing up for this class even if you don't know much. Matt is super patient and understanding. Signing up for the next class for sure! thank you so much Matt!

The experience was great. I learned a different perspective about how to sign music. The class was really inviting, interactive, and dynamic. Matt definitely supported us in how to process the information and how to express it. This experience is definitely worth the value. I just wished my internet didn’t fail me on the last few minutes of the experience 😁.

I am so glad that I decided to take this class! For a 90 minute small group class, it is well worth the value. Matt is very welcoming and brings a positive energy that makes everyone feel comfortable. I would most definitely sign up to take another class to continue to build my skills for interpreting music.
