Matt starting playing cornet at an early age and joined the Hampshire County Youth band when he was about 8 years old, playing with them and other local bands in Hampshire through to the time he left to go to university. He went on various tours with that band including to California, and played in the national youth brass band championships, coming second one year. Matt had a break from playing for about 10 years and started again in 2004 after moving to Exeter. He's played with the Exeter Railway Band throughout that time, taking over as principal cornet a few years ago.
