My Son is really enjoying @ Thames Valley Piano School, Specially Matt has been excellent helping my son to learn and improve his Piano skills. I would strongly recommend if any one is looking for the piano lessons. More...
Mattie always has always managed to motivate my daughter and keep her engaged during the intense one hour lesson . Surely even that's a skill most parents don't have ! Thank you for all your patience with us , the concerts are real joy to take part in and enjoy . Keep up the good work!! More...
Mat is a fabulous teacher with his own gentle but effective way of extracting the best out of his students. My children enjoy his lessons.
Thames Valley Piano School
We just thought to give ourselves 5 stars! Working with each and every one of our students is a pleasure and a privilege. Thank you all.
I must say I am impressed with Matt's approach to teaching young children. He certainly knows how to fuel a child's interest in piano. My 4-year-old really enjoys his lessons. Matt's attitude is playful, relaxed and demanding at the same time. Highly recommended! More...
I can't say enough good things about Matt as a piano teacher. He is a technically brilliant player himself, with complete mastery of the instrument (look for him on YouTube). As a teacher, he is patient and helpful, and focuses directly on areas where players need to improve. At the same time he sets high but achievable standards for his students, which helps foster a sense of both discipline and accomplishment. The results speak for themselves. After spending our first year with other teachers for our children, we have recently switched to Matt and the difference is like night and day. They are progressing faster and are more focussed, and genuinely enjoy the process of learning with Matt. I would strongly recommend him to anyone with a serious interest in learning the piano.

So far I am having a really good time and found my love again for playing the piano. I enjoy each lesson and looking forward to what I can achieve. Thank you.

My son started piano lessons with Matt in the summer a couple of weeks before his grade 1 piano exam.
Matt was able to work with him in fine tuning the areas he needed to focus on and as a result he got a distinction.
Matt is a patient teacher and uses his sense of humour to teach. My son's confidence in playing piano has grown which is good to see. He has been able to work towards grade 3 within a short interval.
I have recommended Matt to my friends and would recommend him as I have seen the results of his teaching.
Matt has been fantastic with my two boys.
My eldest son who has had a few piano teachers (at school and outside) claims Matt as his best teacher ever :)!
My youngest son enjoys the fun approach to teaching and looks forward to his piano lessons .
Matt comes highly recommended from us More...
Fabulous. Good teacher and stuff. I'm getting help with GCSE work and I already won gold medal and a trophy at the competition in Maidenhead. My sister started learning as well now (but I'm the best!) More...
If you live in Slough and looking to find a piano teacher, please save yourself a trouble and sign up with Matt's school. They're not the cheapest around, but not overpriced either - and definitely worth it. For the last 12 months or so, my two daughters have been flying through their grades - and they are thoroughly enjoying it, which - to me - is really important. Monthly-based billing system makes it easy to budget ahead and I can get my kids in during term breaks. I couldn't recommend this place more. More...
Can't recommend Matt from Thames Valley Piano School enough. Excellent tuition for both my children and they are flying through their grading exams.
He also makes it fun and they actually enjoy the lessons, and now practice without me prompting them :-)
Well Done Matt! More...
Great guy and a brilliant teacher if you're considering to learn the piano then this is definitely the place to go.
Been a student of Mat since August 2015. He is a great teacher and really enjoying my 1 hour a week. Started out with no previous experience and now can “almost” play Homework Blues ….
Matt is a great teacher and our son looks forward to his piano lessons. Lots of encouragement, joy and happy feelings.
Matt is a great piano teacher. His teaching method is brilliant and he is great with children.
I am an adult, completely new to the piano and have been having lessons with Matt for about 2 months now. For anyone considering taking up the piano as an adult, but are not sure if it is right for them or if they will be able to fit it around a very busy schedule, please let me assure you that it is well worth making that first appointment. You will never look back.
Matt is very understanding of the pressures that full time jobs can bring, does not insist on rigid term time arrangements and will provide flexibility to you as needed. Whilst all important points for a busy professional adult, what is far more important is how wonderful the whole experience is.
Matt is a wonderful teacher, whose enthusiasm for teaching is clear from the moment you first meet him. He is very patient and seems to take great delights in your achievements however small. He is a very personable man and I can honestly say that I look forward to my lesson with him every week. Those people who may be worried about being embarrassed need not worry. You are made to feel very at ease.
In meeting Matt and by taking the plunge I have found a new hobby and a new way to relax from the pressures of modern day life. I may never be amazing on the piano, but I am pleased with my progress, enjoy (nearly) every minute spent at the piano and love my time that I spend with Matt who, incidentally, is a truly wonderful pianist.
So, to those reading this review, I commend you all to give it a go! I hope you enjoy as much as I do. More...
Our 7 years old boy started to learn piano last September, after discovered his interests and ability in playing piano. We decided to find a private piano teacher for him. Matt started to teach our boy at the end of March, when my boy could only play the most basic tunes. 3 months after, our boy won 2nd prize of his age group in Windsor piano festival. By beginning of July, our boy started to preparing for Grade 2 exam.
We have to say Matt has extensive experience in teaching kids, and he is extremely patient.
We recommended Matt to all our friends who want their child to learn piano.
The piano school also organised twice piano contest in the studio, which I found all the students were so well played. I am impressed by the teaching standard and highly recommend to everyone who want excel in piano. More...

I would strongly recommend Matt. He is very friendly, enthusiastic,patient, and a understanding teacher.Matt made our daughter at ease just after few minutes of meeting her.
In addition Matt is capable of presenting things from a number of perspectives to make lessons eventful and entertaining.
Nibaa is practicing daily looking forward to her piano lessons. She is progressing really well and has been inspired to do well.
Great lessons at an affordable price in a relaxing atmosphere. More...
Inspirational teacher, very motivating. In the past I have had lessons with other teachers in the area but I must say I will NOT be looking for another one after discovering Thames Valley Piano School. The teaching approach is unlike anything I've seen before - I feel like being guided every step of the way during my lessons, with written comments and tips along with planning targets for the next lesson and also my confidence has grown a lot. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy learning to play the piano. More...
