Introducing M&M……

The two M’s are Mauricio & Michelle Ahumada – welcome to our school. We provide quality music tuition and coaching from our studio in Manly. As you scroll down, you will find more information about our services and teaching values.

Our learning space

Our studio is purpose designed for student engagement: it’s a colourful, dynamic and safe environment. It is fully equipped with professional gear: drum kit, keyboard, bass & electric guitars and a complete PA system. We offer students exposure to other instruments and encourage them to sing along with their playing.

Our Student Experience

Our Student Experience

As the sole teacher, Mauricio delivers a relaxed & intuitive learning experience, to every student. With enthusiasm, encouragement and a necessary level of structure, he tailors a program to the individual needs & goals of each student.
 In his lessons our students have fun, explore their own musical taste, build their confidence and as a trade off, learn (and hopefully accept!) the relationship between practice & progression.

We hold regular recital sessions – junior students at the end of every term and seniors twice per year; giving our developing musicians the opportunity to showcase what they have been learning. Performing live is exciting and rewarding, however the thought of it is sometimes overwhelming! For this reason, it is always optional – students are encouraged to participate, but never pressured. We set up the studio with a proper stage feel, creating an authentic gig atmosphere for both audience & performer; that aims to deliver a positive, supportive & enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
