About the Tutor:

'From the moment I first picked up a guitar in my early teens, guitar and music became my great passions. The guitar has provided me with many opportunities in my life including the ability to demonstrate my creativity and skill through song writing and live performance. It has also allowed me the privilege of passing on my knowledge and passion through teaching.

In the past I have taught many children and young people to play guitar. My current day job is in the SGSCC Disability section where I have the privilege of facilitating and performing with the music group which is one of the most rewarding things I have done.

When it comes to playing and teaching music my enthusiasm and passion are infectious, whilst my caring, patient and supportive nature make learning a pleasant, easy, and enjoyable experience.

Please join me in the Beginner’s Guitar Course and let me pass on my knowledge to a young person who is ready to begin their own musical journey.' Matt
