Marion October 2015 Teacher Feature: Matt Driscoll
By West Music Company
10/1/2015 8:00:00 AM
Matt Driscoll teaches low brass here at West Music Marion. Low brass instruments include trombone, euphonium, baritone, tuba, and sometimes trumpet. He began playing the trombone in the 6th grade. Matt has a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Jacksonville State University. He has his Masters of Music in trombone performance from East Carolina University and his Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Iowa. He has taught at Central College for 10 years, Cornell College for 5 years, Bennett  Elementary for 7 years and is on the adjunct faculty at Kirkwood Community College.

He plays with a couple of local groups including Brass Transit Authority and the Cedar Rapids Municipal Band. He has also substituted in the Peoria Symphony, the Waterloo/ Cedar Falls Symphony and the Des Moines Symphony. Last spring he premiered 3 new solo works for trombone. His hobbies and interests include running and spending time with his family. Matt’s favorite thing about teaching is spreading the love of music and helping his students achieve their goals on their instruments. One of his most interesting musical/ educational experiences has been researching and writing his dissertation on the styles and culture of the New Orleans Brass Bands.
