What People are Saying
“A Great Find”
“You present as the guy next door who wants to share and help someone on their way rather than ‘being the teacher’ and all the ego that goes with that. For me your style and approach are authentic. It’s about the art, not showing off. Keep it up Matt, your teaching is excellent.”
“Thank You For Your Enthusiam”
“You are a truly a great teacher, and you have a great website. I love that I can get your personal input every week. A few weeks ago you mentioned how proud you are of the DTO community – and right you are! Supporting, non-judgemental, a lovely environment for a nicely mixed bunch of (budding) artists. I hope to remain one of your many pupils for years to come.”
