I currently live in Hythe, Kent which is near to Folkestone. I teach at my home where I have a teaching studio.

I would also recommend being taught at my studio as I have all my teaching equipment and vast amounts of media for reference use.

Matt is clearly dedicated to my progress and success, and I have seen myself improve greatly under his tuition, more so than other drummers I know have with their own teachers. If it was not for his own passionate attitude towards the drums, I would not be as committed to or enjoy playing the drums as much as I do now, so thank you Matt!
Matt has a friendly and relaxed, yet confident, style of tutoring, and while he will quickly assess your weaknesses and your strengths he will also give you the confidence and understanding to help you improve. One of his strengths is technique and consequently my own technique has greatly improved and I feel much more comfortable in my own ability as a result.Â If you're looking for a new drum tutor, Look no further than Matt. I've been with him for about 4 years now and I am a better drummer for it.
