Learn piano or composition with creative and patient teaching, whether you have years of experience or are a complete beginner. I will share with you the many techniques and resources I have developed over years which work quickly and effectively in many areas of music learning, including piano technique, ear training, music theory, sight-reading, improvisation and composing across different styles.

I offer more than just weekly lessons! In addition to quality one-on-one learning sessions, I provide a true musical coaching service with ongoing contact throughout the week. When you take weekly lessons with me, you can also expect to receive:
• Clear written notes on practice techniques and exercises
• Personalised videos demonstrating new concepts
• Scores and transcriptions of the music you choose to play
• Detailed answers to all your questions!!

With Skype, it is super-easy to record lessons for later viewing, and to send and receive video messages in between lessons. During lessons I can also share my computer screen with you, so you can easily follow my detailed demonstrations in music theory/notation. My students ask and receive detailed answers to their questions as they arise. So with me as your teacher, you will never be alone on the musical journey!

Perfect! Matthew est un excellent professeur, qui est totalement à l'écoute de ses élèves, très investi dans son rôle de professeur, et qui par ailleurs a des compétences fantastiques. Je ne peux que vous recommander Matthew pour vous aider à trouver votre voie.

Matthew's response

Douée et bosseuse, Delphine est une musicienne qui a des buts clairs dans la musique. C'est un plaisir de travailler avec elle parce qu'elle montre toujours le courage et l'ouverture d'esprit pour essayer de nouvelles techniques, y compris le solfège relatif et le développement de l'imagination harmonique.

Julie

Perfect! Matthew est un merveilleux professeur. Mon fils Arthur âgé de 10 ans se passionne à nouveau pour le piano après avoir été dégoûté par le conservatoire. Les cours par Skype permettent une grande flexibilité au niveau des horaires, et le récapitulatif de la séance envoyé par mail est un réel plus pour un enfant tête en l'air comme le mien. Nous recommandons ce professeur aux méthodes surprenantes et efficaces.

Matthew's response

Arthur est un super élève, qui montre la passion et le don qu'il a pour la musique, qui se concentre de façon naturelle sur des petits détails et qui s'exprime de façon productive pendant les cours. C'est un plaisir de travailler avec lui, et sa mère Julie, qui offre un très bon soutien pour son jeune musicien.

Doris

Perfect! Matthew est un professeur patient, ouvert et à l’écoute. Il sait adapter son enseignement à mon niveau, à mes besoins et à mes difficultés auxquelles il apporte des réponses et méthodes claires, simples et concrètes.
Il répond à mes attentes : poser les bases théoriques sur ma pratique du piano tout en développant chez moi l’oreille musicale. Je commence aussi à toucher du doigt l’accompagnement. C’est donc un cours varié et stimulant.

Matthew's response

Vive et bosseuse, Doris explore les styles de musique qu’elle aime, et cherche à comprendre la musique en profondeur. C'est un plaisir de travailler avec elle.

Je prends des cours de piano par Skype avec Matthew depuis plusieurs mois maintenant, et je ne pourrais recommander plus positivement un professeur. Il est extrêmement patient et encourageant. Il me pousse doucement et quand c'est approprié, et toujours au bon rythme. Le logiciel qu'il utilise pour les cours par Skype est vraiment super, on peut partager l'écran et jouer ensemble en même temps. Sa vraie passion et son don pour l'enseignement du piano se voient et se sentent dans ses cours; il croit toujours en moi et m'encourage à viser la meilleure technique, en dépit de mon expérience très limitée – Matthew tient enseigner les choses au mieux depuis le début, pour m'éviter de prendre de mauvaises habitudes. Il ne choisit jamais la facilité en me permettant de prendre des raccourcis, il s'assure au contraire que tout se fait au mieux, comme il le ferait lui-même. Il me transmet aussi du solfège et de l'histoire de la musique lors des cours et, grâce à ça, j'ai l'impression d'apprendre tellement à chaque cours! Je recommande donc vivement Matthew comme professeur pour tout ceux qui veulent apprendre le piano au mieux !

Je prends des cours avec Matthew et c'est sans aucun doute le meilleur professeur que j'ai jamais rencontré!

J'ai déjà eu plusieurs professeurs de piano et de musique et Matthew a une approche de la musique tellement plus intéressante et complète que les autres. En me faisant comprendre les mélodies, les rythmes, les accords et les spécificités de chaque morceau, il me révèle ainsi "secret" de ces créations musicales. Quelles découvertes !

Matthew est aussi le meilleur pédagogue que j'ai rencontré, il est capable de diviser les difficultés que je peux avoir jusqu'à les rendre réalisables et même faciles à surmonter !

Cela fait près d'un an que Matthew donne des cours à ma fille de 8 ans via Skype. C'est un professeur fantastique, gentil et patient et il utilise des approches différentes afin de faire ressortir tout le potentiel des élèves. Au cours de ses leçons, ma fille a acquis des connaissances précieuses en piano et en musique en général. Je le recommande vivement.

Matthew has been teaching my 8 year old daughter via Skype for almost a year. He is an amazing, kind, patient teacher who can use different approaches to bring out student's best potential. During the lessons, my daughter has been learning many valuable things in piano and music in general. I can highly recommend him as a teacher.
