Meet The Author
Matthew is a UK based saxophonist & educator. He has been playing professional 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 career, 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!
"Played with you on the first 4 numbers and was nearly with you - most of the time! Enjoying them immensely."
