Popular Songs & Artists

We’re not in the business of teaching students how to play songs. We’re in the business of creating brilliant musicians. Instead of teaching you how to play songs like parrots, we use them to practice the techniques and theory that are covered during the lessons. You’ll be mastering songs, and the skills that go along with them.

Intimate Lessons

We believe in offering only the highest quality, highest value lessons to our students. We offer private one on one or small intimate group classes. Each student attending receives personal attention. This allows our students to grasp techniques and theory from day one. Classes are tailored for each individual or group.

Timing is everything

Private students receive one 30 minute class per week. 30 minutes is the perfect amount of class time. It provides enough time to review work that was done the previous week, as well as cover new material. Group classes are an hour long to ensure all individuals receive personal attention.

Step By Step Classes

We have developed easy to follow, step by step classes for our students. This takes the guess work out of the playing journey. Each lesson progresses into the next. This ensures that your skill level and knowledge increases with each lesson. This way you will never feel overwhelmed or unsure of where to begin.

Mario runs a tight ship. Very professional and organised. I've been loving my singing lessons with my teacher Hlulani, and every lesson we always have some good laughs, quite therapeutic. It's always been my responsibility to remain disciplined and... practice outside of the lessons. They should consider having some sort of student assessment / performance management system in place to better gauge what lesson structure they need to apply for newcomers as well as to track progress and identify areas where a student should focus and improve.read more

I’ve tried to learn the guitar many times in my life and never really got anywhere with it. The process at Music with Mario is well thought out, easy to follow, and filled with quality teaching. Not only does the process keep you optimistically... committed, but I can also see progress weekly. In particular, I must commend Sergio (my teacher) for his positive energy, patience, and massive talent musically.read more

Learning piano with this music school has been an enjoyable experience! They provide an ideal combination of encouragement while also challenging the individual, and the lessons are structured in way that you learn not only certain songs but the... instrument itself - and music. They consistently offer guidance across various areas, including administrative matters to assist in your learning journey.Having started out as a novice a few months ago, I am so excited about what I've managed to achieve so far (with the support of my tutor, of course!), and excited for more!read more

This music school is a perfect blend of supportive, challenging and inspiring. Music with Mario and Friends have always been helpful in almost every aspect from administration to support during lessons. I started taking piano lessons about 2 months... ago as a complete beginner and have unexpectedly experienced tremendous progress, which is massively attributed to this music school. I whole-heartedly recommend this music school to anyone who wants to start learning a new instrument or someone who wants to greatly improve their musical abilities.read more

I have loved singing all my life, but never felt confident enough to do it publicly because I sound terrible. But after just a few weeks of coaching, I am learning so much about how to use my entire body as an instrument of music, and I can’t... believe how much my singing has improved! I appreciate the professionalism and patience of my coach as she teaches me every little thing I need to know about singing! I look forward to my lessons every week and enjoy them thoroughly!read more

We decided to embark on a family goal this year - learning drums. Whilst it seemed like a really crazy idea at that time - we have to say that the Music with Mario team has made this journey so exciting thus far that we are feeling so confident that... we will be playing drums smoothly very soon. Besides the learning journey, our lessons start and end on time and Mario always communicates effectively and efficiently, if you have any questions. Tebogo is an amazing teacher/mentor and we really appreciate his patience with us. We would highly recommend Music with Mario and friends to anyone that is serious about learning music. The team is full of passion (you can feel it and see it) and they always have a smile on their face as soon as you walk through that door.read more

Taking up a new musical journey as an adult is nerve wracking! The team at MwMandF were fantastic in helping me settle down and enjoy the trip. Botlhale, my piano/jazz teacher, makes the effort to understand my music tastes, skills, and progress to... tailor each lesson to my needs. My son also goes for lessons, so I'm either at the great bar downstairs, or in the professional and friendly waiting room while he's in class.read more

As a 29 year old who had never played an instrument before, I was initially nervous about starting the piano lessons. However, Botlhale quickly put me at ease with her friendly and approachable teaching style. She has a wealth of knowledge about... piano and music theory, and is able to explain complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand.What I appreciate most about Botlhale is her patience and encouragement. She always provides positive feedback and constructive criticism, which helps me to improve my playing skills in a supportive environment. Her passion for music is infectious, and I have found myself becoming more and more passionate about piano as a result of her teaching.Music With Mario and Friends is a fantastic music school. The facilities are top-notch, and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The school offers a wide range of music classes, which makes it easy to explore different genres and styles of music.Overall, I highly recommend Botlhale and Music With Mario and Friends to anyone looking to learn piano, especially those who have no prior experience. Botlhale is a wonderful teacher who makes learning piano fun and accessible for everyone.read more

This is an excellent, professionally manged music school. We are advised that when you're over 50, you need to keep learning new "languages" for long-term mental health. So, I have gone back to piano lessons (having played intermittently through my... life). The advances I have made in just 3 months are incredible. Then, having never plucked a string before, I thought it might be fun to try guitar lessons. It is a fantastic journey with incredible teachers who exude a passion for what they love doing.read more

I have been learning guitar with Mario and his team for just over 2 months now and it has been great. I have always wanted to have an outlet from work and learning guitar has been a bucket list item for years. Music with Mario has given me the... opportunity to do both.They don’t only do brilliant in person lessons but upload videos for you to access and practice along with. They also make sure to stick to a pace of learning that is comfortable for you. I am already feeling confident enough to learn songs with any chords, strum comfortably, play blues scales and play for my family and friends.I can’t wait for more learning to come.read more

Lisa is so good and patient and she understands that being an adult and attempting music is not easy especially with our busy schedules,... luckily they cater for busy people like me and can move lessons around or do a double lesson for when I travel. There’s even the option of online lessons if I don’t feel like going in, absolutely love the flexibility that comes with it so I never have to miss outread more

At the age of 62, I decided to take up piano lessons. After a year of messing around trying to learn on my own and getting nowhere, I stumbled on Music with Mario and Friends. I haven’t looked back because I learned more in one lesson than an... entire year. My teacher, Mikhail, is excellent, highly professional, and has lots of patience for an old-timer like me. If you’re looking to learn to play a musical instrument for the first time, my advice is to get yourself a real music teacher. Check out Music with Mario and Friends. These guys absolutely rock!

My 6 year old daughter has been with Music with Mario for 3 months now, her progress has been phenomenal and she's even promoted to the youth edition.Music with Mario was the only place willing to take her for piano lessons at her age and I am so... glad they did. I have to say a huge thank you to Chesney who has been so patient with her, his encouragement and exceptional teaching technique has really brought out her deep love for music and seen her go from strength to strength.read more

I'm extremely happy and impressed with this school. Every touch point has been nothng short of professional, the curriculum is well designed and clearly well thought out, and the teachers are amazing. My daughter is 8 and does keyboard with Chesney.... She really looks forward to her classes wwith him and through her introduction to the keyboard via Chesney and the school, is developing a real love for playing. i often find her at the keyboard, at home practicing by herself, without any encouragement from me (which is unlike her). She enjoys showing off what she has practiced to Chesney, and looks forward to his feedback. She is progressing very well, given she only started playing a little more than a month ago. Chesney is incredible. He has a great way with young kids. He is kind and gentle and very encouraging, and seems to invest in building genuine rapport with his students. Chesney provides feedback to me after every class and his feedback is very specific, which is really valued. This is a great school and a rare find.read more

Mario is not only professional in his approach and material, he develops a personal relationship with each student making them feel encouraged and enthusiastic about music and the learning process. It has been awesome to see MwM grow from a... one-man-show to a multi-instrument, enthusiastic team of teachers. With the first lesson being free for any prospective student to see if they like the vibe and teachers, there is absolutely no reason not to give MwM a shot.read more

If you happen to be on the lookout for a fantastic guitar tutor then look no further than Mario. His enthusiasm for teaching the skill coupled with his progressive teaching style means you will quickly improve your guitar playing. He is quite adept... at progressing those - like myself with no previous guitar experience at all - to playing full songs only after a few months. He carefully structures lessons short enough to get through the fundamentals whilst also making sure the content remains fun and relevant.His energy and passion to teach guitar is quite apparent as is his level of patience.I highly recommend him to anyone thinking about adding the skill of playing guitar to their existing repertoire.Don't overthink it, start your guitar journey soon by giving him a call. 🎸🎶read more

My husband (mid-40's) and I (mid-30's) decided to start guitar lessons 🎸 with Mario at the beginning of January 2020. We didn't know our 'A chord' from our 'G string'. But with his expert guidance we are now learning to strum. The way he teaches... is very dynamic by teaching you the chords to play songs. This naturally makes the course very interactive to put the chords you learn to practice with modern songs like Ed Sheeran's - Shape of You. At the start of lockdown we did some of Music With Mario online courses (which are brilliant), then he started doing weekly Skype sessions to analyse our progress. We have since come back to the studio and are greeted with sanitiser before we begin our 1-hour session.Mario is a very modern, efficient and patient teacher that works with you until you can play the song to the same beat as the record label.He always keeps you in the loop of studio updates regarding debit orders and even the latest partnership with Marshall Music where all students get a discount when they need to re-string their guitars or buy a new guitar. The guitars hanging on the wall can be bought as a result of this musical partnership.What we like is the personalisation of the classes, slowing it down until we learn the technique. Mario will even send a mini video which demos the strumming pattern on Whats App so you don't forget when you do your practice session at home.If you are looking at learning guitar online or face-to-face, we definitely suggest you get taught by Mario or one of the other classical guitar teachers at the studio!read more

The classes... were customised, with the instructor adjusting the lesson plan to suit your development. This makes the lesson challenging and enjoyable at the same time. This has me playing as much as possible.I would highly recommend if you are interested in playing guitar, or want to improve your current skills.read more
