Hi, there! My name is Matthew J. and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students find passion in music, reach their goals, and feeling like rock stars. I went to Bowling Green State University and earned a Master's Degree in Trombone Performance. I also went to Minot State University to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. I'm a fun and exciting person and my teaching style is practical, honest, and engaging. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
