About Me


Hello! I am a professional guitar teacher based in Northamptonshire, offering mobile and online lessons so students can learn the guitar from the comfort of their own home.

I cover a wide range of musical styles, alongside rhythm and lead techniques. Learners are welcome to take lessons on electric or acoustic guitar depending on their musical preferences. I tailor my guitar lessons around my student’s interests, ensuring rapid progress in a short amount of time through material that is fun and engaging for the pupil.

I am a specialist in teaching complete beginner students of ages 8+ to 80 (and beyond) the electric and acoustic guitar. I understand what it takes to learn and what can make learning easy, I have taught many beginner students during my time as a guitar teacher – as well as those individuals who are revisiting playing the guitar after several years away – helping them learn through the music that they are passionate about.

I have had experience with working with more advanced guitarists on how to develop their music theory knowledge, play more interesting lead solos or simply get them inspired and out of a rut they may be stuck in.

I like to create a lesson plan tailored to my individual student’s goals and learning needs. Together we can create a plan designed for you to progress while learning the music you love.
Guitar playing is a wonderful skill to have and can provide many years of enjoyment, I strive to make the learning process as interesting and rewarding as possible.

Since first picking up the guitar aged 8. I fell in love with the instrument and have undertaken many years of musical training. This included working through the Rockschool grade syllabus, GCSE Music, a Level 3 BTEC National Extended Diploma in Music performance and a First Class BA Honours Degree in Popular Music.

I have taught and performed professionally since the age of 18. In that time I have toured with artists accross the UK and Europe, featured on songs and albums as a studio guitarist and taught hundreds of students to play the guitar.

I have been fortunate to have studied guitar and record production under some of the most inspiring figures in the music buisiness such as Joel Hoesktra (Whitesnake, Cher, Rock Of Ages) Elliott Randall (Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, John Lennon) and Tony Platt (ACDC, Bob Marely, Paul McCartney). I am often delighted to pass on the knowledge and techniques I have learned from these mentors to my own students on their musical journeys.

Matt has deep industry knowledge and connections which enables him to teach some techniques that you might not learn from anywhere else. His lessons are really engaging and I always come out of his lessons with so much more knowledge. He has also given me the confidence to study music at University – without him, I don’t think I’d be where I am right now. I would really recommend Matt as your teacher if you’re a beginner or if you would like some lessons just to top up your skills.

I have learnt a lot from Matt and really enjoy my lessons. He is very flexible in his approach and mixes practical, technical and theory in his teaching. In his lessons I’ve tried bass, acoustic and electric guitar and feel his teaching style suits all three and has made me more confident in my playing
