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

I have always wanted to play guitar lately but I have been told that guitar is one of the most difficult instruments to learn at my age. Mario changed that, he is a natural teacher and a motivator.

Mario is an excellent guitar teacher, who is not only pleasant but also very organised and accommodating. I like the way he found out from daughter first what she wanted to get out of the guitar lessons, and accommodates her choice of music which... she enjoys. I can highly recommend Music with Mario.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

I already had a good working knowledge of playing guitar prior to going for lessons. I joined Music with Mario to move to a new level.Music with Mario helped fill in the gaps for bad technique, understanding and applying music theory. 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
