I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to explain fully what an inspiration you are to me, how much you have helped me over the years on so many different levels, and how grateful I am for your belief in me. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today in the early stages of my cello-ing life and career without you. Hopefully, I will pass on all that you teach me: acceptance, patience, honesty and creativity in its most exciting, direct and engaging forms; nurturing the essence and uniqueness of each student; imagination, focus and joy; and always getting straight to the heart of what it is to play the cello. Thanks for holding the torch so brightly. You walk the talk and light the path for others to follow. Looking forward to the cello adventures ahead!

Matthew is a wonder. He has brought out in me a cellist that I didn’t know existed! Through the belief that there are as many ways to play the cello as there are people in the world, Matthew and I spend our time exploring what that means for me – and this holistic approach is incredibly refreshing. Aside from his teaching genius, his energy seems boundless, and I believe wholeheartedly that it’s impossible to leave a lesson of his without feeling refreshed and renewed to face new cellistic challenges!

WHAT EDUCATORS SAY.
In many years of working with musicians, I have never seen someone so skilled at unlocking creativity, self-belief and taking risks. Matthew Sharp is an extraordinary communicator both as a performer, and as a workshop and masterclass leader. Not only does he model the power of communication in his artistry, but he has a gift in untapping others’ creativity and confidence in their authentic selves. He is incredibly approachable, whilst being incisive in his advice, and quickly wins the trust and respect of students. We were inspired by our day with Matthew Sharp, not least to work further with him in developing a programme of creativity and communication across the school, as these skills are essential to all young people regardless of their spheres of particular interest.
