Thinking about starting piano lessons?

I believe that learning the piano will give you a life long appreciation for Music. It'll bring enjoyment, develop your co-ordination, mental focus and creativity.

I  teach young people and adults from my piano studio in Springfield, Rotorua, NZ - and also online.

my musical background

I began learning piano when I was 4 - and thanks to my parents and teachers, who encouraged me to practise, I discovered that Music was something I was good at.  Music gave me focus and opportunities to meet amazing people through my teenage years and I'm really grateful for that.

 

I completed a music degree majoring in performance piano at Auckland University back in 1995 - this gave me a fabulous opportunity to study under some great musicians. After studying for a diploma of teaching, I returned to University and completed an honours degree in Composition.

 

Music's a huge of my life now - composing, performing and teaching.

The most rewarding part of teaching for me is seeing my students develop confidence and express themselves through Music.
