About Matty M.

Sophia, my six year old, had her first lesson this evening with Matthew. He was extremely attentive and understood very quickly where she was level-wise and was able to tailor a lesson without hesitation. She really enjoyed her time and I think she got a lot out of it. She can't wait for next week.
