About Us

Music Teaching Aids developed for Music Professionals by Music Professionals

At Manumat, we believe that being able to teach music from a number of different angles is vital to a pupil’s musical development.

That is why we have created, and continue to create, a range of music teaching aids that enhance the fundamental role of the music teacher.

Our music teaching aids have a physical quality that reinforces the technical aspects of note reading, composition, music theory, music structure, keyboard geography and the relationship between the notes in notation and on the keyboard.

Being able to touch and feel music, in the way a pupil can with the Manu-Mat mats and other aids, is an enjoyable and meaningful step in a student’s musical journey.

Our Story

Peter Simpson and Mo Gillis-Coates have grown up with music but have both enjoyed an unconventional approach to the world of music teaching.

We’d like to think that this approach has enabled us to develop teaching aids at our slightly maverick and a little bit different!
