Why choose Idealnoise?

** Due to his busy schedule, Matt can only take on a limited number of students at a time. We currently have some availability from December 2016 onwards – book in early to avoid disappointment. **

With a background as a live drummer and producer in bands from jazz to mainstage electronic dance music, Matt can offer guidance and tuition in any style or genre.

Your first session includes a free half an hour sit down to talk about your needs – so that your time can be used most efficiently and completely tailored to you.

The main benefit of our one-to-one masterclasses is one of choosing quality over quantity – we will teach you exactly what you need to know and adapt to your specific strengths, weaknesses and tastes.

These sessions are suitable from absolute beginners right through to advanced.
