From My Students
Anyone can learn How To Play The Sax.
“Matthew helps me and makes playing my saxophone fun.  We are playing music together and I’m learning how to play MY music by ear and put my own style into it. ”

11 - Grade 6 Student

“You are the fun music teacher I never had at school. You are awesome Matthew. Thanks again for making me feel comfortable to ask questions. Cheers, Jez.”


“I felt these lessons for exactly right for me. I’m 70 years old and I have wanted to play the sax since I was 13. I found that with Matthew’s lessons I was able to progress quickly. I enjoyed his style very much and I like how he would go slow and carefully to ensure the student understood what was happening. Great course !!”

70 - Retired

“I am learning how to play my saxophone with confidence.  There is no such thing as a wrong note !”

17 - Year 11 Student
