Dr Matthew Lombard

Dr Lombard holds a Doctorate in Music from the University of California Los Angeles, and has gained international exposure as a performer and teacher. He has performed as a chamber musician and soloist in Africa, North America, Asia and Europe. He teaches woodwind instruments for the Jersey Music Service and can be heard performing with a number of local bands across the island.

In addition to teaching woodwinds, Dr Lombard co-ordinates Primary School Whole Class instrumental projects across the island, and leads several projects on woodwind instruments. Dr Lombard is also secretly a keen french horn player, and enjoys performing in brass ensembles locally.

Dr Lombard guided and supported me through his teaching to obtain distinctions in both my ABRSM Grade 8 Alto Saxophone exam and my ARSM performance diploma exam ... and I have felt my playing has improved immensely with the wealth of knowledge that I have learned through him... I have really valued the attention to detail that he provides when giving feedback on my playing, and he has been excellent in advising me on certain exercises to complete to target specific areas of my playing such as technicality and tone.


I have enjoyed being part of the JMS (Jersey Music Service) Saxophone Ensemble and JMS Big Band, both run by Dr Lombard, and especially enjoyed the variety of pieces we played and the experiences to perform that Dr Lombard worked hard for us to have, such as the summer concert held at Government House in 2022.


We have seen (our daughter's) playing go from strength to strength through Dr Lombard’s tuition and encouragement and (our daughter's) practice and ability.
