Matt West

Hi. My name is Matt West.

My instrument is the Trombone which I currently play in a number of bands including the Great Lake Big Band, Hot Tub, Blended, the Taupō Concert Band, Brass Band and the Palmerston North Brass Band. I am also one of the tutors with The Taupō School of Music Wind Band and have recently stood down from the Chair position on the Board. I am still on the Board as the tutor representative.

The Trombone is a fantastic Instrument. It is used in all types of bands, from orchestras to rock bands and in my opinion (although I may be biased), it is the best sounding and the most fun to play of all the brass instruments.
