Professional experience performing on trombone alongside other trombone luminaries (eg. Wayne Wallace from Patois Records) dating back to 2013, and in instructing students as young as 11.

Within the first few lessons, you'll know to play with a full and beautiful sound, and as time goes on you'll be able to get around the instrument with confidence. I specialize in jazz (both big band and playing with a combo), and typically use the Arbans book or adaptations from Flexus to advance your progress.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Matthew

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music. Upon arriving

I help my students build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of trombone playing using my own material, classic books from the trombone pedagogy, and current songs we learn by ear. I make an effort to find out what music the student is interested in and what they find enjoyable to play and shape the lesson plan around that. I find this approach makes the instrument fun to play!

I am an audiophile that enjoy all types of music and have experience playing in a wide variety of genres like jazz, rock/pop, ska/reggae and classical.

Matt is an incredible teacher. He is always able to break things down in a way that I can understand. He's patient and kind and makes learning and playing fun.
David
I thoroughly enjoyed having Matt as my teacher for 4 years.

Matt is patient, thoughtful, and talented. Matt helped me to improve my trumpet playing, and I also learned a lot about music theory and how to play by ear.

I highly recommend Matt!

hello:

Matt Hull was my trumpet teacher for 2 years, before he moved to NYC. Matt is a fine teacher and a fine person. He was always ready to respond to my questions and respected my own ideas about what i was trying to accomplish. Matt is patient, open, and prepared for the lessons. Matt is knowledgable about both classical and jazz teaching, and has a strong background due to his experience at Berklee. I think anyone, from beginner to advanced students would benefit from working with him

Online Trombone Teacher

I have been teaching trombone for 22 years. I have received about 14 years in trombone and specialize in it. I have produced 3 CDs with my brass group, Cornerstone Brass. I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

About Doyle

I have 3 earned degrees

Laurie was an excellent teacher for my middle-school tuba player. She was very patient and encouraging. She was very knowledgeable on the details of playing the instrument.
