About the lesson
My teaching method is based entirely around student needs. For children, I focus on making music fun and exciting while sneaking bits of theory and technique, all the while developing problem solving skills, confidence and resilience. Children learn at vastly different rates, and my philosophy is to provide a low-pressure environment where children can learn at their own pace and develop in their own way, as well as be further challenged when they excel.
For Adults, I work around the aspirations of the student, be it to learn as a hobby, prepare for a performance or advance your skills. I try where I can to teach skill, technique and theory through learning music, rather than doing exercises.

I am a musician and teacher, with professional experience in both since 2013. I Teach 1-1 at Chichester Music Academy and Portsmouth Music Academy as well as privately. I also play in bands for pubs, weddings and functions, as well as the odd festival. I also love to compose music, and I do so regularly for fun and occasionally professionally.
Matt is a great teacher that tailors his approach and lessons to the individual student to maximise the learning experience. His lessons are always fun, varied and very productive. Really enjoy that you can pick songs you like and practice these instead of following a set teaching schedule.
Matthew (Matt) is very talented guitarist and musician with a deep understanding of music theory and guitar playing technique. He is also an experienced performer.
I am an intermediate (in my mind that is) guitarist striving to improve and Matt is very good at picking up on issues with technique and approach and looking for ways to address them constructively.
Matt teaches. His lessons are well structured and at times challenging...that works well for me.
Location and timing are convenient.
Matt is also a really nice guy.
Matt has been giving electric guitar lessons to my son (15) for a couple of years now. The amount that my son has learned in a relatively short time is amazing - particularly on the theory side as well which has been really useful for his music GCSE and general understanding of music. Matt is a great tutor and has built up a good rapport with my son. He is also willing to give advice on equipment and help with setup etc. Would definitely recommend!
