My name is Simon Matthews and I am a guitarist, guitar teacher. session musician and composer from Birmingham, UK.


I have been a guitarist for over 17 years, performing with original bands and function bands. I have also performed as a guitarist in various musicals and pantomimes across the UK and I have performed with my duo, 'Jump!' across Europe and the Caribbean with various hotels and cruise lines. 

I am a self-employed professional musician and a graduate of the London College of Music (University of West London).


As an experienced session guitarist I can offer a wide variety of services, whether that be in a studio, live or I can record guitar tracks in my home studio and send audio tracks to you online. I can also arrange/ transcribe sheet music for guitarists or small to large band ensembles.

I have over 12 years of teaching experience which has included individual private lessons, small group tuition and whole class tuition in primary and secondary schools.
