I help my students build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of trumpet playing using my own material, classic books from the trumpet pedagogy, and contemporary songs. 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.

About Matt H.

Matt Hull is a trumpet player and composer from Boston, MA, currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. An eclectic performer and listener, Hull is inspired by the recording process and uses elements of both pre-recorded material and looped audio in his music. He has composed for a range of ensembles, such as his new group RADIO BRASS, duo project GlovePilot with drummer Joe Hartigan, a chord-less jazz quartet called Factory Quartet and his solo work. Recently, Hull released an album titled “In the Pulses” of solo trumpet as well as tracks featuring bassist Max Ridley and drummer Dor Herskovits. In 2018, Tower to the Sea Records released a cassette of Hull’s solo music, "New Recording 49", an album that he self-recorded with the iPhone Voice Memos App.

A recipient of the prestigious full-tuition City Music Scholarship, Hull attended Berklee College of Music and graduated with a dual degree in Jazz Composition and Professional Music in 2014. While at Berklee, he studied under Ayn Inserto, Greg Hopkins, and Tiger Okoshi, and was awarded the Thad Jones Achievement Award for Jazz Composition in 2014.

Hull is a founding member of the indie-rock/jazz outfit Really From, who released their sophomore album "Verse" in 2017 with Topshelf Records and are anticipating a new release in 2021. Hull has also recorded and toured with The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die's on their third full-length album "Always Foreign" and regularly plays with the Skatune Network live band & Max Ridley’s Basement Show Philharmonic.

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.

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!

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

Matt helps my son a lot especially for improvisation skills. He is straight forward and always makes sure if a student understands basic things first before moving onto the next level. Look forward to more lessons with Matt!

So far I've had a great experienc with Mr. Hull as his lessons help me improve my skills at the trumpet. In addition he gives clear cut directions on what to practice, as well as tools to help me perform better.
