Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to check it out.

Composition · In studio
John is a brilliant composer and instrumentalist. I worked with him extensively while studying at CalArts. His musicianship and knowledge of music theory is in depth, and he is easily able to pass this information on to students. I highly recommend him as a teacher to any level of musician.

Matthew S.

Glendale, CA

The trombone is an instrument in the brass family, notable for its unique sliding action. Usage is widespread and varied, from classical and jazz to rock, hip hop, and pop. Students will learn fundamentals such as embouchure, slide technique, instrument care, and reading. More advanced students will study the standard repertoire and learn to improvise in a variety of styles.

About Matthew

I grew up in San Diego and started playing piano at age 6. I started composing at age 10 and began to play the trombone in school bands at 12. I fell in love with all of immediately, and I started telling everyone around me that I was going to be a musician when I was still in middle school. After graduating high school from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, I attended the Cleveland Institute of Music for 6 years where I earned a bachelor's and master's degree in composition. I've performed as a soloist and with a variety of groups all over the country, and my music has been featured during my fellowships with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and the Canton Symphony Orchestra. I've been teaching various disciplines since I was 16, and I've developed a real ...
