Dr Matthew Pearson joins the company
I am delighted to announce that Dr Matthew Pearson will be joining our staff as an Organ Consultant from 1st July 2021. He will be based in Shaw, but will be travelling around the country as required.

Matthew started out as a very reluctant organist having been nominated by his secondary music teacher to play the school organ for morning assembly. But in time he warmed to the task and by the age of 17 was organist at St Peter’s Irthlingborough in Northamptonshire where he played an engaging but somewhat cantankerous Compton.

After a break from playing at church, 6 years ago he took up the post of organist at St Maxentius Bradshaw in Bolton and purchased a Johannus Studio 170 from Church Organ World to help him improve his playing.

Matthew trained as a teacher and after teaching in a sixth form college he took a post as Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Huddersfield and then Research Fellow at Manchester Metropolitan University. He joins Makin from Learning by Questions, a company which specialises in digital classroom assessment based in Blackburn, from which he has a raft of experience in sales and working with customers and developing solutions to meet their exact needs.
