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 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.

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

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!
