Information about Matthew

"...a highly experienced musician, tutor & multi-instrumentalist..."

As a professional musician & multi-instrumentalist who has been performing live for almost fourteen years in various successful original & cover bands, I`ve gained experience in many musical fields. Including composing, performing, recording & producing music with The Sub Rosas, I have spent time with bands in rehearsal & recording studios using industry standard equipment & processes while serving more of an engineer & producer role.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __

I own and run a mobile recording service for bands and artists to give an alternative solution to expensive studio recording. We travel to rehearsal or recording space with our own quality gear, record your session, mix your music and deliver a final mix, all for an affordable price.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __

I am currently in a Beatles tribute as George Harrison and play live shows around London on a regular basis.

__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __

Acting as a session player for bands has encouraged me to become a more rounded musician, a more confident performer & a more tasteful & creative player, playing to compliment each individual song. This has led to being booked to play at some prestigious venues including The Cavern Club (Liverpool), Dingwalls (Camden, London), Fairfield Halls (Croydon, London), Old Trafford (Manchester, Lancashire) & The Trump Tower (Istanbul, Turkey). A highlight has been working with record producer Charlie Hugall (Florence & The Machine/Ed Sheeran/Kaiser Chiefs) at The Dairy Studios in Brixton while playing guitar for the No More Navigators & performing with Matthew Jure A.K.A Day V Lately who are signed to record label Tactal Hots Music.

My approach to lessons is always relaxed & informal. Lesson topics are normally directed towards your own personal areas of interest, with an emphasis on teaching you practical applications of the techniques you learn, since the goal is to learn to play music, understand it & hopefully, have fun at the same time.

As well as teaching instruments, it is my intention to give all of my students a greater understanding of how music works, & therefore a greater appreciation for it.

To coincide with lessons, I also keep a record of your progress so that together we can work towards improving your playing & not using lesson time just for practice.

Many students feel that a weekly lesson arrangement does aid them to keep focused & progress steadily, although it is not necessarily essential. Whereas children will often benefit from frequent weekly rather than fortnightly lessons since the structure & constant support of these sessions help keep them on track.

Availability: “…friendly, encouraging & skilled, always prompt & generous with his time…”

Weekdays & Weekends - Mornings, Afternoons & Evenings.

Limited slots available.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: “…a very reliable & responsive teacher…”

I have been a private music tutor for the past 10 years, specialising in Guitar, both electric & acoustic, as well as the Ukulele. Working with individuals & group sessions, I have a gained a great deal of experience teaching people of all age groups & ability levels, specifically at Kemnal Technology College, Sidcup, Kent, while I was the school`s in-house Guitar tutor.

I take a lot of enjoyment from playing music & I am always enthusiastic about teaching my students how to have fun as well as to improve their playing.

I have worked as a music tutor and a recording studio engineer for studios in London, teaching young people how to work within the music industry and the studio environment. I planned and ran music workshops in the studio and in Young Offenders Institutions around London. The idea of the workshops was to help young people express their thoughts and feelings through music. Participants would learn different ways of making music from songwriting to music recording studio skills and creating music tracks.

Matthew is a fantastic and very patient tutor!
I`ve not played my guitar in such a long time and he was excellent in making me feel confident and comfortable about getting back into it.
My first lesson was great as I felt like I learnt so much, technique, theory and general tips to make my playing improve. He even bought his own equipment with him, as I couldn`t afford a bass amp yet and this really helped get me started. I`ll continue to use Matthew for the foreseeable future.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the kind words Cai, I genuinely appreciate you leaving feedback. I am so happy to hear you enjoy our lessons. Finding the time to practice can be tricky, but remember - the hard work pays off, keep up the great work!

Matthew has so far been extremely helpful and a very good teacher. Even as a complete beginner, he quickly assessed my level and my learning pace and has made sure that each session has been interesting and fun. He`s very good at taking requests to make sure I learn songs that I actually want to learn, and spends time beforehand to think about songs so that we don`t have to spend the sessions on that. He`s also very accomodating regarding time and place and charges a very fair price. I can highly recommend lessons from Matthew whether you are a beginner or a skilled player wanting to take it to the next level.

Tutors Response :

Thank you Christian, your feedback is truly appreciated. I have seen steady progress over the weeks, you listen well and take note of what is important from each lesson, plus, your willingness to learn clearly shows. I am so pleased to hear that you enjoy our lessons. Keep up the good work!

Matthew has been exemplary in every respect. He is friendly, encouraging and skilled, always prompt and generous with his time. My husband was keen to start learning the ukulele and Matthew has nurtured this; now Michael is able to play (after only a few lessons) and is enjoying the experience. I highly recommend Matthew with utter confidence.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for the kind words Laura, it is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Matt has been giving guitar lesson to my 9 years old son for the last few months. I started seeing some amazing progress already after the second week but what is more important Matt made a real effort to understand my son, working on songs that he likes and making the lesson fun and this made all the difference. My son is now really looking forward to his weekly lesson and has developed a passion for this instrument playing whenever he has a moment to spare. Thank you Matt!

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for the kind words Claudia, I really appreciate it. Martino is a fantastic tutee and he is making progress fast. He is a pleasure to teach and I look forward to our lessons.

I am having such a great time & improving my guitar playing every lesson. Matthew is a very professional & patient teacher who truly supports and believes in your success. Matt is perfect for complete beginners (read "dummies"). I would highly recommend him to all my friends and who is passionate about guitar playing but afraid to start.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your positive feedback Christina, I appreciate it. Keep up the good work!

Our 12 year old boy started playing electric guitar for the first time with Matthew, and we are very happy with how far he`s come. Matthew is always on time, and very committed and so we decided to extend the lesson. His passion for music shows in the class.

Tutors Response :

Thank you very much for your comments Goran, it is much appreciated. Milosh is doing fantastic and I hope he continues to enjoy the lessons.
