“Matt is an excellent voice and accent coach. He makes you excited and curious about what the voice can do. Matt helped me with my American accent for my first feature film and I will always be in debt to him.” - Jill Nguyen (Hungry Ghosts, Loveland, True History of the Kelly Gang)
Matt is the best coach I have had so for accent training. His observation and analysis skills of the physicality required to create the convincing sound of the accent are superb. I will definitely come back to him when I need a new accent.” – Andeja Pejic (Daliland)

Not only does he focus on how your voice sounds, he also trains you on creating these sounds with natural technique. I look forward to further work with Matt.” – Lucas Pittaway (Snowtown)
