Mr Matthew Kilford

Iím a musician based in the UK who for the last 15 years has been teaching guitar and ukulele in peoples homes and at primary schools.

Having struggled through education and having to find my own path I find it incredibly rewarding to be able to help others learn something new, and see a passion flourish. I have seen from my own experience, and that of countless students, the positive impact of feeling confident in playing music you love.

Iím always looking for new ways to help different students get the best from their instrument, and I make sure each lesson is tailored entirely to each student. I embrace the fact that not every student learns in the same way.

This idea of this site was born out of necessity due to the pandemic in 2020.

The frustration of not being able to visit students prompted me to start teaching online and even though I had my doubts, the results have far exceeded mine, and my studentsí expectations.

Using a multi-camera set up and Zoom, I found I could still easily get my points across and even sometimes offer a new perspective because of the ability to zoom in on certain areas of my guitar, share images, videos, and even audio at the touch of a button all on one computer screen.

I specialise in teaching absolute beginners, but I also work with intermediate guitar players who get stuck in a rut and donít know how to improve.

I focus on many different aspects of playing techniques from finger placement, to open chords and the dreaded barre chords that so many people struggle with. I even tackle bigger topics such as songwriting, the C.A.G.E.D system and ear training.

The goal is to teach you well enough that youíll be more self sufficient in your learning guitar and youíll eventually wonít need a teacher holding your hand through every step of your journey.
I love teaching in peopleís homes, and still plan to do this, following all the safety guidelines
