This is how 2 referees rated Matthew:
Matthew offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
All of my lessons are now exclusively online. In my lessons, pupils have access to the sheet music and an overhead view of the keyboard all on one screen through a video call. My current pupils are adapting very well to this new online format, and maybe even prefer the added comfort of staying at home. With all of my performances cancelled for the foreseeable future, I have plenty of availability so do get in touch for a free first lesson!
I am an avid pianist and keyboard player who performs at function gigs and care homes and with other professional musicians.
I have experience playing a wide variety of music styles in live settings. I am classically trained with grade A A-level music and grade 8 ABRSM piano however my experience is very eclectic having performed and written in styles such as blues, jazz, funk, film music etc.
I teach adults as well as young children and teenagers. I have been teaching music for over three years with students who all have their own personalised lessons from learning the music to video games, to practicing for grades, to improvisation and composition.
I teach in schools 1-1, and have given music classes and workshops to primary school pupils.
Music is a very personal thing so I believe in teaching in a personalised way. I feel that is one the great benefits to having 1 to 1 lessons.
I have a core program which will take students through basic techniques and concepts in music, however throughout the course students will be given scope to choose their own music which I will then modify and adapt according to the student's playing ability.
Students are also given the option to train for ABRSM exams.
I may be able to travel depending on convenience and whether I am already in that area at the time. I also have some availability to teach at weekends.

Matthew is an excellent musician, he plays professionally, but he is also a very patient and structured tutor. He sets weekly targets and then he helps to 'iron out the wrinkles' the following week enabling me to make steady progress and move to the next level.
I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to progress the piano at any level.
A good teacher , very patient and motivating.
