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.
