His first major teacher was his aunt - pianist Elizabeth Alexeyeva, who worked as a teacher at music high school. Later, the Belarusian Symphony Orchestra violinist Mikhail Goldin gave lessons to the young musician. Then Roman was taught to play the guitar by his friend Mitya Rud. In his youth Matin played in several local groups, performing rock, but he said I do not want to follow my fathers’ footsteps, and rock music made me bored very soon....
