About Guitar Function

Have you ever dreamed about playing guitar? Whether you’re a curious beginner or a competent guitarist wanting to take their playing to the next level, you can count on my guidance and expertise to get you where you want to go. A little about me… Music is my passion. It brings untold joy to many and the ability to play an instrument improves concentration, focus, dexterity, memory and opens the door to new opportunities. My aim is to inspire your passion for music. With over 15 years of teaching and playing experience in various countries, including: Europe, America, India and Asia, I am a highly competent musician and teacher with an MA degree in Music and an ‘enhanced’ DBS. I am skilled in designing lessons for children as well as adults, from beginner to advanced, having taught 1000’s of private 1-1 lessons and group sessions. When I am not teaching, I love to perform live at a range of venues, from open-mic nights to festivals, and I enjoy recording music at my home studio. I am interested in a wide range of genres and music styles and could teach you anything from Abba to Zappa! What I can offer you… • Expert tuition in your choice of acoustic, electric, classical, bass guitar and ukulele. • Bespoke lessons, tailored to your personal needs, goals and musical tastes, with personalised practise materials and schedules. • An adaptable knowledge base: from helping you develop the basics to applying advanced skills and music theory as you progress. • Song writing skills and development in the style of your choice. Lessons with me… Where? • Online video lessons, streaming direct to your laptop or device from my home studio. • Face-to-face lessons in person, at your own home or mine. When? • At flexible times to suit your schedule. • From 30-minutes to 1 hour, with block booking discounts available. Fees… Whether online or face-to-face, I offer great value for money. Online: • Try a free 30-minute session. Let me see your current ability and tell me about your goals and aspirations. • 30 mins - £20. • 60 mins - £30. • Recommend a friend - 1 free lesson. Face-to-face: • As above, but £5 more for each session to include travel expenses. I pride myself on giving the best lessons to my students because nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing them progress and achieve their musical goals. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

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 hin

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

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

James D. said "Cyril is a great teacher. He's got a very deep knowledge of jazz music in particular which really helped my development over time from grasping new concepts and theory to fine tuning my technique in very subtle ways, which makes a huge difference to my playing."
