Information About Matthew - Woking teacher - (2 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Matthew:
Now with over 10 years professional experience, I have been gigging and recording since my teens. I’ve played with multiple artists: Treetop Flyers, Florence and the Machine, John 'Rhino' Edwards (Status Quo, Dexys), Sparkadia, Deer Tick and others. I’ve recorded in Malibu with acclaimed producer Noah Georgeson and have toured the UK, Europe, and USA extensively. I have performed at some of the world's biggest music festivals including several performances at both Glastonbury and South By South West.
As a songwriter I’ve co-written an album with a signed band. My music has been featured in adverts and recently in the film ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ (‘Things will change’ - check it out!)
I am currently based in Woking, Surrey.
I have extensive formal and informal experience of teaching. As a musical director in a number of bands, my role was to teach other musicians to play the parts that I had devised.
My aim when I teach students is to marry technique and feel; one very good way of achieving this is to divide the session into two parts. In the first part, we work on technique, including scales, finger positioning and dexterity; in the second part, we will work together to learn a song of the student's choosing. This makes the sessions beneficial and fun at the same time.
