Matthew is an outstanding teacher who sets the bar high for his pupils - and helps them to reach it. He was instrumental in my son achieving a distinction for his grade five jazz piano in March 2018. ABRSM exam prep is clearly a speciality. He clearly enjoys teaching too. With his lessons there is never a dull moment! Matthew is a very intellectual and thoughtful chap all round.

My Son currently attends Maths tuition with Matthew and I can honestly say he looks forward to his weekly sessions. This is amazing for a teenager who did not previously enjoy Maths. My Son has gained confidence in a short time and has learned to look at the subject in completely different way. I totally recommend Confuoco. My only regret is that we didn't find Matthew sooner.

I attended a concern that was organised by Matthew from Confuoco and was struck by his passion for music and the respect he had for his students. Keep up the good work Matt

Matthew seems a very switched on tutor who knows exactly what my son needs to do to increase his current grade in economics

I have been very impressed with the work Confioco have done with both my Neice and Nephew who have come on amazingly with their piano skills and are both receiving excellent academic reports from school. Very happy Aunty.

As a teacher and parent, my standards and expectations are extremely high. The relaxed and family run Confuoco team had no trouble surpassing them!

Matthew, the company founder and director, has a unique insight into the learning experience. Being dyslexic and autistic, he has faced many challenges throughout his schooling and career. These challenges have given him the ability to understand and connect with his students in ways most teachers wouldn't even think of.

My children began learning piano with Matthew and soon went on to receiving academic support too. It wasn't long before my high school age son also took on an apprenticeship within the team, and is thoroughly enjoying the challenges and learning experiences involved in his new role. Such a great opportunity that Confuoco has offered to a number of local young people.

I have been so impressed with the creative and innovative teaching styles at Confuoco, that I was delighted to become a part of the team myself!

It is an absolute pleasure to be involved with a team so dedicated to providing the best possible outcomes for every learner. Each student is treated as an individual and enjoys a teaching program tailored specifically to their needs and learning styles, no matter how many barriers to learning they may face.

How refreshing and inspiring to see teaching that fits itself around the learner, rather than expecting the learner to fit around the teaching. A unique company that knows how to get the best out of learners of all ability levels.

I studied here and worked here and Matts teaching methods are unorganised and lack concentration. Working for Confuoco was a difficult experience as he refused to pay me some £200 and had me running around after him as his standards are higher than he maintains himself and it is unfair on the young people he employs.

An inspirational place for youngsters to learn about music. Matthew Mills will find the musicality in your child and draw it out. Apart from individual tuition, Confuoco has added much to the local community over the years, drawing people together through music, be that the community choir or the local concerts where every child, beginner or not, gets a chance to shine. Not only is he a talented musician in his own right, he is an accomplished piano tuner and violin repairer and nothing is too much trouble. Many children have benefited from his support and gone on out into the world more capable and confident. A great place to start your musical life.

An enthusiastic style of teaching piano that really suits me, fun, interesting and I always learn new things. I've been learning piano with Matthew for 7 years now and still enjoy my lessons every week, which have grown to include composition and a good variation of music pieces both modern and classic. I definitely recommend Confuoco for piano lessons.

Many thanks Matthew Mills, for not only first finding me a beautiful old piano and arranging for it to be transported back to my home, but for your very professional and friendly services, restoring it back to life and concert piano standard.
Your exceptional knowledge, wisdom and passion for the piano, is evident in the care and respect which you afforded mine; coupled with your invaluable help and advice in French polishing skills to restore the outside casing to its former beauty.
This beautiful instrument and piece of furniture is now a priceless addition to my home, and Mr. Mills, you are a credit to your profession.

Matthew Mills, Piano Tuner 'Professional, knowledgeable and passionate about your work. A truly honest and kind gentleman. A Yoda in your field. Infinite Stars and a smiley face :)

Confuoco Tuition  Q&A

Confuoco Tuition Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

We exist to celebrate the small moments; those small steps that will eventually lead to success. I love explaining concepts, some quite tricky and observing the understanding unfold. I love teaching; something I find difficult to switch off from (ask my children).

What inspired you to start your own business?

Confuoco was started in 2004, alongside my professional teaching career, initially to support students who I thought had potential that was not being realised through traditional avenues. Since then, I have helped a plethora of students follow their dreams, and that is what perpetuates the business. We never lose sight of our philosophy.

Why should our clients choose you?

In my experience, the majority of students need tutoring for one of two reasons. Firstly, they want to improve their grade and just need more structured guidance. Secondly, the learning environment is not conducive or suitable to enable students to reach their potential. In both cases, I have a complete toolkit to identify and support learning paths that will ensure students reach their goal, whether that be Grade 9 in Mathematics or Grade 4 in mathematics.
