Kate C.'s review on Apr 21, 2020

Matthew has been fantastic in teaching my son to play guitar. He was a complete beginner this time last year and is now able to play chords with ease and can play quite a few songs which he loves to show me as his confidence has grown. Matthew is a very patient teacher and is happy to adapt lessons according to what my son would like to learn to play. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to play.

Mathew is a great tutor he's really helped me with chord progression and I'm nowhere near as slow as I used to be. Been working on Strawberry Fields Forever at the moment. I hope to continue learning more songs with him

Team B.'s review on Nov 19, 2018

(This review was taken by email via Bidvine) Matthew taught my son and I guitar over a period of 18 months. Matthew is a great teacher and always impressed me with his enthusiasm for music, his endless patience and willingness to try a different approach when needed. Lessons were conducted at my home and Matthew was always punctual, a good communicator and very flexible if I needed to change lesson times. I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons and although I do not currently have lessons (due to work commitments) I still play the guitar as often as I can - this is down to Matthew’s inspirational teaching. Matthew would often try to move me outside my comfort zone by encouraging me to try a new style or to play with others - this I think is the hallmark of a good teacher. Rating of 5 Julian Hart

Cordelia W.'s review on Apr 22, 2020

I only had the option to click 3 of the 5 boxes but I would have ticked 5. Matthew has been a great teacher for me, he listens to where I have difficulties and he gets me over them. He is friendly and professional & I have found my lessons enjoyable. He is good at making arrangements and keeping them. I have made good progress and I have seen my improvement so I am pleased with my lessons. I have had guidance about how to find my niche within the various guitar styles which can be difficult to understand as a beginner. Thanks Matthew and best of luck with coping with the Covid situation.

Mathew is always on time, and a very patient tutor; My daughter enjoying the lessons and feel she has learnt a lot .I recommend him a lot.

Matt used to teach my son guitar when we lived in Sussex. They always had a good time - Matt is patient, engaging and totally goes with the musical taste of students. I would absolutely recommend him

Charlotte - 25 April 2020

Matt is an incredible teacher. He is really versatile, and explores what kind of music inspires my daughter, and then builds up her technique and confidence playing music that she enjoys. My daughter really looks forward to her lessons, and asked me a few months ago if she could increase from 30 mins to 1 hour (which has never happened before in my household for a music lesson!). Matt has also managed the switch to virtual tuition very well and we have been continuing with weekly lessons throughout the Lock Down. Couldn't recommend him more highly!

Paula Evans - 25 April 2020

Really motivated guitar lessons.

Kate - 25 April 2020

Matthew is a very patient teacher and has taught my son guitar for over a year now. He was a complete beginner and with Matthews weekly lessons he is now confident to play many songs. Matthew has tailored their lessons to teach the style of music my son wanted to learn and we are very happy customers. We'd recommend Matthew to anyone wanting to learn to play guitar.

Would Highly Recommend

Matthew from Guitar Function has been teaching my 9 year old niece for the last 6 months. They have been exploring a variety of instruments whilst she figured out which she preferred, including guitar, ukulele and the keyboard.


The tutors are friendly and professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Guitar Function to anyone who wants to learn an instrument, have fun and see results.


Team B.'s review on Nov 20, 2018

(This review was taken via email from Bidvine) My name is Graham and I have been having Guitar lessons with Matt for a couple of years now. Not being the quickest of students, due to age and dexterity I find Matt is very patient, and always willing to try a different way round to reach a goal. Choice of song to learn or technique is normally up to me so I try and vary things a bit. An appropriate amount of theory is always added but not enough to baffle me. No matter anyone's taste in music Matt will work on a song quite often on the spot and come up with a sheet of music to try there and then and to take home and practise with. the lesson times are the same each week unless I cannot make it but Matt will do whatever he can to fit me in should the need arise. All the quality's Matt possesses are what sum up a good teacher and I would recommend him to anyone. Graham Elvin
