We are living in strange times since the Covid 19 crisis and that has meant that Matthew has had to adapt his teaching approach. Since the outbreak in the UK, Matthew has taught all his usual students from Cardiff through online piano lessons through FaceTime/skype or what's app video calls. While this is not the best way to have piano lessons, it has enabled his students to continue their studies and develop as musicians. Matthew has had feedback from his pupils and their parents that online piano lessons is actually beneficial in that they don't have to travel to their piano lessons and it has also helped students become more independent learners. ABRSM (the piano exam board) have now the option to sit exams at home via a recorded video, so this has also been welcome in ensuring students can develop and succeed musically in such a trying and testing time for all educational outlets.
Lots of people ask what kind of style does Matthew teach on the piano? And the truth is- all sorts of different styles. Matthew has a wide interest in all different types of piano music from romantic, classical music, ballads, chart music, jazz, blues, folk, country - you name it, Matthew has probably had experience performing it or teaching. This is one of the main reasons Matthew has become so popular as a piano teacher in Cardiff - he understands that while it is important to study classical music and get good technique through scales etc, it is equally important that students play music that they know and like and will have fun learning. Matthew's passion and teaching ethos is that "Music is to be enjoyed".
