Mango Rhythms was born out of a passion for people to learn to play and understand music, to use it for fun, relaxation, therapy and for work. It is important to us that music in all forms is presented as fun, not a stumbling block or chore but a tool to express yourself and enjoy freedom in learning. We provide private lessons, group lessons, and deliver workshops in various instruments throughout Scotland.
Based in the south side of Glasgow in Giffnock, and the Westend, public transport is plentiful:
