Matthew played piano as part of the christmas charity function at cornerstone in Cardiff. He is clearly a gifted piano player who can play with confidence and style. I would recommend him for any wedding or booking.

Matthew was a great addition to my parent anniversary last year. He played a great selection of music as guests entered the function room. He can play in a lot of different styles and we found him very professional on the day, and during the booking process. Thank you!
