Matt Welch

My name is Matt, and I am a musician with a passion for diverse genres and a deep appreciation for the transformative power of music. With a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Surrey, I have cultivated a rich understanding of rock, classical, and fusion, allowing me to embrace an eclectic taste that fuels my artistic pursuits.

Throughout my career, I have honed my skills not only as a performer but also as an educator. With several years of teaching experience, I have had the privilege of witnessing the joy and passion that music ignites in others. It is deeply fulfilling work to help individuals uncover their true potential and abilities, and I take pride in guiding them on their musical journey.

One of the highlights of my performance career is playing in theatre pit bands. In 2022, I had the incredible opportunity to be part of a pantomime at the Brighton Centre, where I performed in front of a crowd of 2000 people. It was a remarkable experience, made even more memorable by the presence of Brian May of the band Queen, whose wife Anita Dobson was involved in the show. The energy and connection I felt with the audience that night were indescribable.

Teaching not only allows me to share my knowledge and skills but also provides me with continuous inspiration. Every student brings a unique perspective and challenges me to expand my own musical horizons. The process of discovery and growth that I witness in my students fuels my own creative spirit and motivates me to constantly evolve as a musician.
