Hello! My name is Matthew, I am an American Music teacher currently living in Greece. I teach beginner up to upper intermediate musicians. My method focuses on teaching how to play music by ear. Players of all instruments are welcome to study with me, though I only teach technique for piano and guitar. Under this approach, learning to read music is not required, though a basic understanding of notation can greatly aid building musical comprehension and repertoire. After getting familiar with your instrument, as well as some basics of how music works, we will jump right in by finding some songs to learn in rhythm style. That means chords and rhythm are given top priority, and other details are added later. These may be favorite songs of your choice or of my recommendation, depending on the needs of the student. Along the way, I will introduce proper technique, exercises, listening skills, and musical vocabulary in a natural progression, grounded in your favorite music. Using this method, interested students will also have the opportunity to explore their creativity and learn to compose their own music and recreate the music of others, entirely by ear. For homework I provide a weekly practice routine consisting of exercises, song repertoire, listening and composition challenges. Other topics I cover include how to efficiently read sheet music, harmony and song structure analysis, reharmonization, composing and arranging for multiple instruments, computer-based music production, ABRSM (or other) exam tutoring, and much more. Feel free to send me a message with any questions or booking requests, as my calendar is not always accurate due to technological restrictions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hanif Saifurrahman
A really insightful teacher. He taught everything from the basics, matching his teaching pace with our learning pace. I learned a lot from him from only one session.

I am so happy to have such an amazing and professional piano teacher.He is very polite and helpful .I have learnt alot from him in just two lessons which is not even tiny bit close to the things which I understood from other resources over a year about piano. I feel myself lucky to have lessons from him. Thank you so much Metthew.

Matthew excellently manages to fill in and maneuver around my interests and prior knowledge of music. Very talented and patient!
Michele Wolaver
My 10 year old son immediately felt comfortable and connected with Matthew, as his manner is easy going, friendly and confident. Matthew's instructional style seems to easily adapt to where the student is at as well as be flexible to take them where they aspire to be. This instructor also is quick to reply to messages and shares valuable suggestions!
