"I am really pleased with Matthew who has helped our daughter pass her Grade 2 practical exam, after being unsuccessful with another teacher.  He has also rekindled her enthusiasm and encouraged her to want to progress onto the next level.  Thank you Matthew" (Jan '15)

"My daughter has been learning the piano with Matthew since March 2014 . She started at the age of six without any knowledge of reading music. I have been amazed by how much she has progressed in such a short time. Her lessons are relaxed and friendly and she is encouraged to try more challenging pieces without feeling pressured. She also already has a good grounding in musical theory and is able to write out music as well as recognise notes in the treble and base clef. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Matthew to anyone wishing to learn the piano, no matter what their age or ability" (Jan '15)

S. Smallcombe

"I started learning the piano with Matthew in October 2014. I am an adult learner with no previous musical experience. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons and feel that I am making good progress, recently passing my grade 3 theory exam. Matthew has a wonderfully encouraging manner during lessons and I have felt well supported to learn at my own pace, playing a variety of different pieces of music (jazz, popular and classical). It is a dream come true to be learning to play and I am so grateful to Matthew for teaching me" (June '15)

"I would highly recommend Matthew. My daughters, 8 and 11, both enjoy their piano lessons – always enthusiastic for their next. Matthew is sensitive to their ages, ensuring he brings out the best in each – making lessons fun, productive and educational!" (June '15)
