"Drum kit became a main focus for me and I then moved onto having lessons with Bob Armstrong aged 17 where I studied amongst other things the Moeller Technique."At age twenty, Matt McDonough was offered one of ten places in the first year of the Trinity College of Music - Jazz Course. Here he was able to work with many of Britain's major jazz playes. he also played with many groups including The National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Great Britain and Trinity College Big Band. Matt continued with lessons from Bob Armstrong whilst at Trinity.
"For me there is nothing like sitting right back in the pocket of a groove!! I just can't really say that I listen to any one type of music though, and most musicians will say that. I just want to have as many different influences as I can in order to better my musicality. My favourite drummer? Well, I have many, two of them being Mr Vinnie Coliauta and Steve Gadd..."Aside from music, Matt likes keeping fit in the gym. He has done martial arts for many years including Ju-Jitsu and Kung Fu, and he particularly enjoys Judo.
