Matthew’s expressive musicality along with his thorough technical command sets him apart as one of the leading young classical guitarist. Matthew’s dedication for performance as well as his original compositions and arrangements further gives him authority to be a caring and effective teacher in his field.

Matthew exceeded my expectations greatly when he composed the music to one of our short films. He is a real professional – not only did he write great music for the story but he is extremely easy and fun to work with. I’m not surprised that Matthew is becoming very successful.

From Matthew I requested an original piece of music for our choir in the style of cinematic, epic music. Despite never having attempted this genre Matthew produced a very effective, powerful composition. It was premiered some weeks after its completion and the audience loved it. Not only that but some weeks later our choir and ensemble needed to perform a particular tune on a very short notice – within hours Matthew created a beautiful arrangement perfectly made for us! It is a pleasure to cooperate with Matthew and his contributions are genuinely appreciated.

We are so thankful that Matthew played at our small wedding. We all thought how perfect the music was and how it contributed to the atmosphere of a beautiful, yet unconventional wedding ceremony. My husband and I were really touched by the playing and it really helped to create some very evocative memories of our special day. Personally, I would like to add that I was really impressed by Matthew’s kindness and support in any way before and during the wedding!
I have just recently started guitar lessons with Matthew. Learning should be fun and with Matthew it is. Already I can see – and hear – improvements in my playing. Matthew’s passion and enthusiasm are infectious and he inspires me to put in the work needed to improve. We’ve gone back to basics to deal with years of my bad playing habits. I’ll never be Eric Clapton but with Matthew’s professional help I will be as good as I can be!
Matthew played guitar at my art opening and provided a lovely atmosphere to complete the mood. He was also very flexible when we decided to move him outdoors to where people were mingling in the courtyard. I was delighted with his music and the guests remarked that it added to the sweetness of the evening.
