"Matthew taught my 6 year old granddaughter piano and singing lessons for about two years. All the lessons were well planned fun with a variety of stimulating activities. Evie was always eager to attend her lessons and thought the world of Matthew. He was always kind, caring but firm. We could not believe how quickly she learnt and retained the material taught. I would certainly recommend Matthew as a music and singing teacher to any age. He is very talented and can adapt his work to a wide spread of people. " Hilary Egley
"Matthew created a music session that perfectly catered for our needs. The children really enjoyed it as he was approachable , fun and ensured all children were involved. He provided expertise and tips that the children really responded to. Months after the singing session I was amazed that, out of the blue, the children started to sing the song! It clearly had a positive impact! We would happily have Matthew back for future creative projects."
Rachel Lovatt, Teacher at Woodcroft Primary School, Leek
"I joined Alsager Community Choir two years ago and have enjoyed every session. Matthew is a fantastic choir master who is inspirational with his infectious enthusiasm. He has considerable musical talent which he's used to create choral arrangements for a wide range of songs. Working with Matthew is always great fun. He has a wonderful sense of humour but is also kind and easy-going so all choir members feel included and valued." Cathie Smith, Alsager Community Choir
"I joined the choir after not singing for 60 years. Then my daughter asked me to join her singing the Hallelujah Chorus. Matthews lessons and the videos gave me huge confidence. Wow! It worked. So a special thank you for getting me to raise my game. I wanted to join a choir for the challenge after not singing for 60 years. The result has been 10 months of constant surprise at how enjoyable it has been. And this is all down to Matthews relaxed but very effective style. Thank you."
Peter Colyer, Student and Choir Member
