About me

Matthew Sackman ALCM - Singing Teacher


Hi, my name is Matt, and I am a freelance singing teacher covering Portsmouth, Fareham, Havant, Waterlooville and the surrounding areas.

Teaching is my passion, my speciality is Musical Theatre, but I also have extensive experience in opera, rock, pop and jazz genres.

My singing lessons are suitable for any age, and I offer one to one sessions as well as group sessions. I am very flexible, you can come to me for lessons or I can come to the comfort of your own home. I provide all music and have a portable keyboard.

Singing lessons are a wonderful hobby, but if you wish to pursue singing more formally, I can help prepare you for LCM exams, amateur or professional auditions or local Singing festivals. I can help develop your confidence, and help you to develop or practice your technique as an already confident vocalist.


Music is a wonderfully expansive form of expression, where no one musician is the same or ultimately defined. It is this uniqueness that makes music so personal as well as entirely universal; and it is this idea that stands as the backbone of my lessons.

To bring out the absolute best in my students, I cater my lessons to focus on the individual. I enrich their natural voice through personalized techniques of vocal development and vocal safety, use their unique attitudes to improve their expression and combine the two to create confident and competent performers.


I am an Associate of the London College of Music (ACLM) and have a degree in Creative & Performing Arts (BA) from Portsmouth University. In addition to one-on-one singing tuition, I work as an Acting and Musical Theatre Lecturer for Havant & South Downs College.

I have over a decade's experience teaching one to one and group work, along with experience in directing, stage management, music & theatrical directorship for both local Youth and Adult companies including Havant Dynamo youth theatre, South Downe Musical Society and CCADS.

Matt Sackman was very confident as the narrator, Officer Lockstock Urinetown - Review 2015 Daily Echo Curtain Call
Credit must go to Matt Sackman (Director) for his imagination in this production...Anyone who missed this production made a big mistake. Sunshine on Leith - Review 2015 NODA
Director Matt Sackman couldn’t possibly fail – and he didn’t! Sunshine on Leith - Review 2015 Daily Echo Curtain Call
Matt Sackman gave an engaging and alluring performance. Evita - Review 2013 NODA
Matt Sackman lived his character. Chess - Review 2012NODA
As a character piece the accolades just have to be heaped on the head of Matt Sackman as Bela Zangler, he was perfect; and that sequence between him and Bobby Child in tandem was so reminiscent of ‘The Two Ronnies’ Crazy For You - Review 2013 NODA


Matt Sackman came dangerously close to stealing the show! Our House - Review 2011 Portsmouth Evening News
For me, the scenes with Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Present were the most memorable. Matt Sackman (The Ghost of Christmas Present) had great personality and his performance lit up the stage. I loved the sheer exuberance of his tap dance as Scrooge is offered the delights of a Christmas feast A Christmas Carol - Review 2011 NODA
But suddenly wiping the theatrical rug from under everybody's feet is the suddenly omnipresent Matt Sackman. Here, he shines Guys and Dolls - Review 2010 Portsmouth Evening News
