I tailor my guitar lessons around my students interests, insuring we progress through material at a pace that is right for the pupil.
I have been fortunate to have been mentored by some of the most inspiring figures in the music business such as Elliott Randall (Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, John Lennon & many more) Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Cher, Rock Of Ages, Trans Siberian Orchestra) and Tony Platt (ACDC, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & many more). I have gained so much knowledge and experience from these mentors that I often love to pass onto my students.
I am a qualified music teacher having achieved a First-Class BA Honours Degree in Popular Music, specialising in Music Education. I am an experienced guitarist having performed across the UK and Europe with an array of artists such as The Leicester Symphony Orchestra, Mia and The Moon, Victoria Leitner, Lucien Moon and Matt Peach. Sharing the bill with artists such as Sisteray, Emma Buckley, Harriett Rose and Adam Slack (The Struts).
Alongside playing live, Matt is a studio musician playing on and producing records with artists such as Lunaxis, Victoria Leitner, Valnea Bulic, Hidden, Tinuke Jonah, MJV, Natalie Taylor, Jaded, Lodestone and Matt Peach. You can watch the video below of me improvising a lead guitar solo for a recording studio session.
“Matt is a mobile guitar teacher able to help you to learn to play the guitar in the comfort of your own home. He teaches students of age 8+, helping beginners upwards play the guitar.”
I pride myself on my friendly and relaxed teaching style that helps my students develop their technical abilities as well as their understanding of exciting and engaging lessons.
Guitar playing is a wonderful skill to have and can provide many years of enjoyment, I strive to make the learning process as interesting and rewarding as possible.
