Matthew Whitaker

The New Jersey-born pianist, percussionist and composer Matthew Whitaker is one of America's fastest-rising and best-known young jazz musicians. Blind from birth, Whitaker's prodigious talent on the keys won him endorsements from both Yamaha and Hammond by the age of fifteen. Following training at both Juilliard and The Harlem School of Arts, Whitaker has made musical appearances on Ellen, The Today Show and Showtime at the Apollo and was the subject of his own 60 Minutes segment. Whitaker has been a feature performer at Jazz at Lincoln Center, SF Jazz, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Monterey and Newport Jazz Festivals. Whitaker's latest album, 2019's Now Hear This, features his Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award-winning tracks "Emotions" and "Underground".

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
