Your Instructor

Matthew Smith is a UK based saxophonist, educator, husband and dad. He has been playing gigs throughout the UK and in Europe since his early teens and has a thriving teaching practice. His pupils' ages range from 8yrs-80yrs, and their standards span from beginner to professional.

In his early years of playing, Matthew got tips and advice from various musicians which really helped him develop his playing. The creation of SAXOPHONE Studies is a way of him continuing this tradition of sharing the knowledge.

For Matthew, music is a vehicle for creativity and expression, because of this he has always been drawn to improvisation, jazz and blues - although, any soulful music has his attention!

"I was trying to teach myself to play the saxophone from a book. I got as far as I could and felt I needed some proper tuition; that’s when I found Matthew...I would, and do recommend Matthew to anyone, no matter what their level of playing. A great teacher and a genuinely nice person."
