Matthew, experienced guitar teacher based in Bury St Edmunds

Matthew

Matthew is an accomplished musician who regularly performs as a solo artist and as part of a band. Playing both piano and guitar from an early age his style has become eclectic and encompasses many different genres.

His performances in Europe and around the UK include slots at the popular Isle of Wight Festival (with The Jellycats), ‘The Eden Sessions’ (supporting Blink 182) and a supporting role on a UK tour with Californian ska band Reel Big Fish (with The Jellycats). This experience has motivated Matthew to foster a love of music in others and lends itself brilliantly to teaching in an engaging and stimulating manner.


Since 2010 Matthew has enjoyed both freelance and peripatetic tutoring around Suffolk for piano and guitar. At present, he is focusing on teaching and is involved in multiple musical projects, including composition and live performances.

He hopes to encourage and inspire musicians of all ages, in lessons where students can move at their own pace whilst ensuring a steady progression. Focusing on Pop/Rock, Blues and Folk, he takes inspiration from Nick Drake, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.

Joshua

Joshua has been playing bass for over 10 years, initially taught by highly accomplished session player and soloist, Lincoln Anderson. Shortly after he gained a Degree in Professional Music Performance from the Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Surrey. He studied under Joe Hubbard, an internationally acclaimed bass guitar teacher, who has taught many iconic players including Pino Palladino.

During his time in Guildford, and since, he has played extensively to live audiences. His interests span many genres, taking his inspiration from jazz through to rock.

Jack

Jack is a mobile teacher who offers drum, banjo, ukulele and guitar lessons. He is a skillful multi-instrumentalist based on the Suffolk/Essex border with over seven years of teaching experience, both in schools and privately.

In 2010 Jack graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Popular Music, in which his major unit was music education. His first study instrument is the guitar (electric, acoustic, bass, bottleneck and lapsteel), which he first started learning at the age of ten. Since then he has gone on to become an accomplished drummer as well as a banjo and ukulele player.

As a busy performing rock musician Jack frequently plays across the UK and Europe in bands that have releases in various formats (vinyl, CD and digital) on numerous record labels around the world.

His lifelong passion for music is infectious and he hopes to instill this in his students.

He knows how important it is for students of all ages to have a good mentor to guide them so that lessons are fun and engaging and practice outside of lessons is effective, allowing the student to develop their own musical style.
