« Perfect! Thanks to Matt, I went from merely knowing low Bb to play a wide range of notes (A, Ab, G, F#, F, E, B, C, Db, D, Eb, high Bb, etc.) and being able to play them well. If you have Matt as your tutor, you will have a fun time and improve a lot. »

Matthew Burrows - Trombone he/him/his In the Iowa/Illinois Area performing and studying trombone all the way to Seventh position and back!

Methodology

My teaching methodology revolves around salubrious playing (Healthy and ergonomic playing). I am a big believer in making sure that I provide my students different tools and strategies for their “musical toolbox.” This insures that they know how to work through repertoire without pain, teach others, enjoy music-making, and know the theory that wrote it. This results in an overall well-rounded human and musician.

Background

I am a trombone player and have experience teaching a private studio since 2018. I have worked at the International Trombone Festival, am an Eagle Scout, and studying still at the University of Iowa with Dr. Jonathan Allen. Currently, I am a trombonist with the 484th Army Band Reserve band. Also, I am the president of the UIOWA Men’s Water Polo Club Team.

Perfect! Thanks to Matt, I went from merely knowing low Bb to play a wide range of notes (A, Ab, G, F#, F, E, B, C, Db, D, Eb, high Bb, etc.) and being able to play them well. If you have Matt as your tutor, you will have a fun time and improve a lot.

Matt's response

Angel shows a great tendency towards a fuller sound in the lower range of the horn. Currently, he is working on expanding his range through the purposeful engagement of his embouchure (straw method), blowing faster air in order to increase the vibrations of his lips to go higher (Airplane +paper method) and to know the positions 1-7 with accurate note names of each partial (5 Note Roulette).

I have been working with Matt for several months now and there has not been a single moment when I doubted his dedication to the craft of trombone performance. He is obviously passionate and it shows both in his playing and in his guidance. I find trombone performance EXCEPTIONALLY nerve-wracking and Matt does a great job making others feel less uncomfortable and nervous in their own playing.

Matt is a pationate and skilled trombonist. His energy and enthusiasm for the instrument is infectious and I can't help but have an amazing time whenever we have a lesson! You'll learn a ton, and have a great time doing it!
