Mannin Music is a collaboration of private music teachers on the Isle of Man. Our aim is to provide a central contact point for you to find enthusiastic and qualified music teachers.

We currently offer lessons in piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, whistle, clarinet, saxophone, all brass, acoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, drums, theory, GCSE/A level/IB tutoring, and also in recording and live sound engineering. Lessons are available in a number of different musical styles i.e., classical, folk/Celtic, rock and pop, musical theatre etc.

All our teachers also enter pupils for ABRSM, Trinity, Rock School and Trinity Rock & Pop grade exams if students wish to take these qualifications. We plan to run a variety of music related courses over school holiday periods. Keep an eye out for details on these.

Mannin Music, then contact us for more information.

Other Services

Mannin Music has a qualified and experienced sound engineer working with us. If you are interested in producing a demo recording, or would like a multi-track made of a live gig, then get in touch. Giving someone the opportunity to record a short demo CD can also be an interesting and unusual present!


One of our fab teachers, Ruth, is launching an album with her band a'Nish (formerly known as Nish As Rish) on Saturday 28th April, and as well as giving an album launch at Noa Bakehouse that evening, they're doing a special family concert at St. Ninian's Church at 3.15pm that afternoon!! This acoustic concert will be 45 minutes long, and a great chance to meet the band and hear the music from their brand new CD: original tunes and funky and thoughtful arrangements of folk music from Scotland, Ireland, the Isle of Man and Scandinavia!
Tickets are available in advance from, or on the door! Booking in advance is highly recommended, as ticket numbers are limited.

Eeee, this is happening 2 weeks today!! My band a'Nish and I are launching our album 'Way of the Gull' with two gigs in the Isle of Man on Saturday 28th April: the first one being an acoustic family concert in the afternoon at St. Ninian's church, and the other being the official album launch at the super-cool Noa Bakehouse! We've sold more than half of the tickets for Noa, so if you want to come, I'd advise booking in advance in case there are none left on the door! All tickets for both gigs are available from: Hope to see you there! x
