While Matt Jefferson is best known as the bass voice of the acclaimed trombone quartet Maniacal 4, his versatility extends to classical and commercial music as well. Equally versed on bass trombone, tenor trombone, and tuba, he has performed with the Louisiana Philharmonic, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, and the Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Lab Band.
A graduate of University of North Texas, Matt’s true passion is for teaching. He constantly tries to challenge the limitations of traditional institutionalized education to help students think outside the box and maximize their learning potential to achieve their goals. During his three years as an active freelancer in Louisiana, he was also a valued faculty member of Nicholls State University.
A forward-thinking “people person,” Matt is an ardent student of life. In addition to his music career, he does freelance video production. He also is an enthusiastic sports fan and self-confessed bookworm whose tastes range from Malcolm Gladwell to Christopher Moore. Originally from London, Ontario, Matt grew up in Calgary and now lives in Chicago.
