University of the Pacific

Matt Tropman joined the Conservatory in the fall of 2010 as Lecturer in Tuba and Euphonium.  He recently served as adjunct professor in low brass at Eastern Michigan University and Executive Director of the Brass Band of Battle Creek. As a former member of the U.S. Marine Band (President’s Own), he frequently performed as a soloist throughout the U.S. including at The White House.
 
Dr. Tropman is an active clinician and recitalist, having performed and taught throughout the U.S., as well as in Spain, Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Canada. He has performed with the Detroit Symphony under conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Neeme Jarvi and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
 
Dr. Tropman has released two CD's; Continuum and From the Balcony (Summit Records). Both have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”, CBC Radio’s “Disc Drive”, and “Music and Company”. From the Balcony was reviewed in the New York Times, which stated “Tropman makes a serious case for the euphonium as a solo instrument”. In addition, he has been featured in solo performances at Severance hall in Cleveland, Myerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, and Music Hall in Cincinnati.
 
Dr. Tropman received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan, Masters's degree from Arizona State University, and Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in tuba performance from the University of Michigan.
