M & L School of Performing Arts

We are a performing arts school, run by husband and wife Martin and Lwena Sorento. Martin teaches Piano and Drum Kit, and Lwena teaches ballet and singing. Between the two of us, we are fluent in four languages: English, Danish, Portuguese, and Spanish and we welcome students from all backgrounds, races, religious beliefs, and gender. We enjoy being active in the community, as well as for the environment.

We offer:

  • Tuition to support graded examinations with ABRSM Piano grades, Trinity Guildhall and Rockschool Drum Kit grades, Rockschool Singing grades, and RAD Ballet
  • Free trial lessons.
  • We are the only school in Newmarket that offers ballet, piano, drum kit, and singing lessons!

Ethos Statement:

At M & L School of Performing Arts, we will always strive to support, encourage, motivate and inspire our students to be the best performers they can be and aspire towards excellence whilst having fun. We aim to strike a healthy balance between an enjoyable and relaxed yet focused atmosphere and to create and model a trustworthy, respectful, safe, and fair relationship between teacher and pupil, from peer to peer.

Although I started ballet in my fifties and am now 60, I really want to do as well as I can and Lwena takes my ambitions seriously. She is a wonderful, inspiring teacher and I am very happy that I’m making progress since learning from her. I enjoy her ballet class so much.


My children enjoy attending M & L School of Performing Arts. My eldest daughter had previously lost interest in her piano lessons but since training with Martin, she has been showing great enthusiasm, She enjoys her lessons and likes that she can get one to one tutoring tailored to her needs. She had an opportunity to showcase a song she had been learning for only few weeks and she did very well. My youngest daughter also enjoys her piano lessons and is keen to show us what she learns. I would recommend M & L School of Performing Arts to anyone interested in dance or learning music whether it is singing or an instrument. Martin and Lwena are dedicated to giving high quality teaching and will support the students and parents by making appropriate recommendations e.g books to buy or areas to focus on.
