Testimonials

Your [RCM final] recital was so special, I felt really touched and inspired, and so emotional. I never knew that the trombone could be so beautiful, and it makes me feel excited to go and practise to find some of that emotion back that I felt in your playing. Thank you so much and congratulations!

Chamber Music

Matt enjoys playing with chamber groups, such as brass quintets and trombone quartets, and has done many arrangements for these groups.

 

The first group Matt formed was the Norfolk Students Brass Quintet, who released their debut album. The group was made from players from all over Norfolk who have all since become professional musicians.

 

Before he left sixth-form, Matt created a trombone quartet in the hope that it would continue once he left. This was a good opportunity for him to create and test lots of new trombone quartet arrangements, some of which can be found in the Shop.

 

After moving to London, Matt was part of many new chamber groups, including brass quintets, brass dectets, trombone quartets and trombone choirs, and can help you find the perfect ensemble for your event, or dep in your chamber group.

Jazz is also a big part of Matt's musical life, and he has played with several different big bands and small bands, playing both lead trombone and bass trombone.

Playing with these groups has taken Matt to venues such as The Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, St. John's Smith Square and at The Royal Norfolk Show.
