Matt has been working as a Freelance trumpet player since he was 16, and is in demand as a lead and commercial trumpet player and teacher.
Matt studied trumpet between Birmingham Conservatoire and Canterbury Christ Church University, where he had the pleasure of studying under the tutelage of teachers such as Percy Pursglove and Steve Waterman. Matt has been working as a Freelance trumpet player since he was 16, predominantly between London and Birmingham and is in demand as a lead trumpet player and soloist throughout the country. Matt is an Eclipse Trumpet Artist.
I have played Eclipse trumpets and from the beginning of my professional career, and the opportunities to try other horns on the market have been many. To this day however I have not tried anything available on the market that plays anything near as well as Eclipse trumpets do. Intonation, sound and accuracy are second to none on these fantastic horns. They are customisable to my exact needs and as my needs change my trumpet is able to fulfil those demands.
I currently use a Large Yellow Lightweight for all lead and commercial work, and a Medium Red for all of my other work and between these two horns, when coupled with my Eclipse Flugel there is nothing I have come across in my career that my Eclipse trumpets have not been able to do, and do well.
