"A lesson with Matthew goes beyond tuition and learning, it is an inspiration. I already feel transformed by his brilliant approach. He truly understands and coaches you to learn from playing and discovering the gold of where your heart is."
Smashed My Goals...
"I love my sax coaching with Matthew. In a very short space of time he's raised my abilities and confidence beyond anything I ever expected. The sessions are always challenging but realistic and achievable.
His endless patience, encouragement and sense of humour make learning the saxophone fun and enjoyable.
I really appreciate his flexibility in tailoring my lessons to my precise needs and interests at any given moment.
For me, the sessions would be worth every penny at twice the price. My only wish is that I'd have found him much sooner!"
Helped Me To Understand...
"Matthew's easy way of breaking things down into the basics really helped me to understand. I now use many of his explanations in my own teaching and would happily recommend his tutorials to pupils of any standard."
