Hello, my name is Matthew B. and I love music! I have played brass instruments most of my life and have over 14 years of teaching experience.
I play the trombone at the advanced level and am proficient on the barritone (euphonium) and trumpet. I am also a trained vocalist.
I have enjoyed performing solos, and have played in ensembles, concert bands, and orchestras over the years, but some of my greatest satisfaction has come from teaching.
My goal is not merely to teach an instrument but to produce musicians. I take an interest in each student and know how to bring out their best. I inspire each student to succeed and truly enjoy making music.
In 2009 I became the pastor of Woodridge Baptist Church. As Music Director I lead the choir and oversee the instrumental music of the church.
Taught private brass lessons.
· Trombone · I took trombone lessons from Matthew when I was a relatively young trombone player. Matthew was always focused on helping me develop proper technique, which lead to better sound quality. He also spent time on other important topics besides just playing the instrument, such as instrument care and maintenance. Matthew puts in the effort to help his students succeed, and I definitely recommend him!
· · I have observed Matthew's vocal and trombone talent for more than 10 years. His insight is practical and he is great with both young people and adults. I definitely recommend his coaching to help you accomplish your musical goals.
· Trombone · In studio Matt's a first-rate musician and an excellent teacher. His passion for music is contagious and inspiring. I highly recommend him!
