Throughout the course of my life as a trombonist I have been impressed with the wealth of friendships and relationships I gained by choosing this instrument!  While all friendships are special, there is a kinship among trombonists unlike any other - and beyond that, I have known a number of great tenor/bass trombone duos!  Legends like Pugh/Taylor, Davis/Reichenbach - friends like Zgonc/Hecht, Niess/Cortazzo, McManus/Carson and so many more!  

Affinity is a celebration of the Trombone family and a feature for tenor/bass duo.  It is audience-friendly and perfect for your trombone choir concert.


Matthew Neff is a native of Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania and a 1992 graduate of Penn State University, where he studied music education. He received his master’s degree in bass trombone performance from Catholic University of America in 2003.

Prior to winning the position as bass trombonist in the North Carolina Symphony, Neff was a Master Chief Musician in the United States Navy Band in Washington, D.C., performing bass trombone in the Commodores jazz ensemble (2009-2019), Brass Quintet (2003-2009), and the Concert/Ceremonial Band (1992-2009). During his years in Washington, he had an extensive freelance career and performed with symphonies across the mid-Atlantic states. Recent performances include the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, American Festival Pops Orchestra, and National Philharmonic.

An advocate for music education, Neff has conducted master classes and clinics throughout the country and served as Adjunct Professor of Trombone at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia (2003-2019), all while maintaining an active private low brass studio in his home.

Neff is enjoying his new home in Raleigh with his wife, Tricia, and two of their four daughters.
