Matthew Schoendorff is an accomplished composer of many styles of music. Although perhaps best known among the professional community for his works for wind band, Schoendorff writes for all types of ensembles. His pieces have been performed on several continents and are on many state festival required music lists. Schoendorff's music has received recognition by the first National Band Association's Young Composer Mentor Project, The National Association for Music Education (MENC), and several competitions and festivals in Michigan.
First published as an undergraduate student at Western Michigan University, Schoendorff continues an extensive writing and publishing career. His music is published by Grand Mesa Music Publishers, TRN Music Publisher, MSB Publishing Co., Advance Music, and The Tuba Press. He is a member of ASCAP. In addition to his published compositions, he is also co-author of a warm-up method for wind band. Schoendorff appears in the 2008 GIA Publications release Composers on Composing for Band, Vol. IV, edited by Mark Camphouse.
