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 instil a love of music in others and lends itself brilliantly to teaching in an engaging and stimulating manner.
Ben teaches Music Technology and DJ lessons to those just starting out, to those who need help taking their music and/or DJing to the next step. He works with students individually to enhance their knowledge of electronic music production, mastering and/or DJ techniques using student-centered learning.
Joshua gained a Degree in Professional Music Performance from the Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Surrey.

Why Suffolk Music Teachers?
I enjoy the variety, from playing pieces, sight reading practice and theory. I also like playing duets with Eleanor and learning how to improvise.
Since starting lessons in September 2015, I passed Grade 1 Piano with a Distinction in November 2015 and passed Grade 2 Music Theory with a Distinction in March 2016. I am now awaiting a date for my Grade 2 Piano in June 2016. My Piano playing has improved so much, I am much more confident and am slightly happier to play to other people!
Eleanor is very patient and lets you try to play no matter how slowly or with however many mistakes. We then go back over and Eleanor explains what was good and what to look out for.
