Matthew Jackson

Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn

Matt grew up in Lincoln to a musical family and went on to study Horn at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama under Angus West and Tim Thorpe. Whilst at the RWCMD Matt had masterclasses with many of the UK’s finest Horn players and musicians including Julian Baker, Anneka Scott, and David Pyatt. At the college Matt undertook modules in teaching skills and workshop leadership where they developed his individual, group and class teaching skills within multiple school settings. This is where he realised he had a passion for teaching.

He is a founding member of the Scherzo Brass Quintet with whom he has been lucky enough to tour to France for Les Musicales de Quiberon and perform throughout the UK including events for Classic FM, WNO and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Matt is also a member of Toot Suite Horns, a new ensemble who have embarked on a busy recital and recording career.

Matt is proud to be the brass teacher at Music Guru and looks forward to continuing his passion for teaching while continuing his thriving Chamber music and Orchestral career.
