Hello! My name is Matt and I teach the Viola and Violin.
I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand and began studying the viola after moving to Adelaide in 1998. I am a passionate musician and especially enjoy playing music in small groups as well as inspiring budding musicians through teaching the viola and the violin
I returned to New Zealand to further my viola studies by beginning a Bachelor of Music at Victoria University in Wellington, which I then completed at the Elder Conservatorium of Music at the University of Adelaide under the guidance of Associate Professor Keith Crellin OAM.
Although still a Kiwi at heart, I am now based in Adelaide and am a member of a number of ensembles and orchestras, in which I have performed in Australia as well as internationally. I was a finalist in the ‘Music Works’ competition in Auckland in 2007 and was a founding member of Adelaide’s own Maple String Quartet.
I teach at Cardijn College – Noarlunga, at my home in Seacliff Park, and at the Professional Music Academy studios in Paradise.
I am an experienced, friendly and enthusiastic mentor and would love the opportunity to support your learning of either the violin or viola, no matter your age or ability.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail:

I look forward to hearing from you!
