Play • 1 hr 5 min

"You can't scream at something and expect it to work." - Matthew Bee

Matthew Bee (@cotswoldweddingguitarist) is a guitarist and teacher who has performed at over 40 weddings in the past year.

Throughout college, Matt felt inspired by his favourite music artists and worked in retail whilst gigging with this band and busking. Years later, after sticking to his guns and studying hard, Matt is running two businesses simultaneously: one in delivering 4 guitar workshops and 6 ukulele workshops to students every week, and the other in performing at weddings across the Cotswolds.

I fell in love with Matt's voice when I stumbled upon his profile on Instagram many months ago, and this has been one of my favourite conversations to date! We discuss tips for posting more consistently on Instagram; the importance of setting goals and celebrating milestones; why investing in himself is one of the best decisions Matt has ever made; how to learn songs on the guitar using patterns; and so much more!
