Matthew Parkin

Matthew spent most of his twenties playing the bass in dodgy rock bands, and then most of his thirties making furniture and renovating houses. Since walking into a classroom at the age of 45, he has been obsessed with becoming the best music educator that he can possibly be. A CME (Trinity) through Norfolk Music Hub has led to a BA (Hons) Performance Industries to be completed by early 2020, with QTS through TES in June 2020. Currently teaching KS3/4 in an independent school in Marbella (Spain), and delivering WCET ukulele to early years/KS1 in Gibraltar and Sotogrande (Spain), Matthew is in the process of writing Mr Parkin’s Crazy Ukulele Workbook. His latest musical output can be found on Spotify under the name Pushback.
