Piano Lessons

I offer individual, one on one PIANO LESSONS to school age children and adults from BEGINNERS TO GRADE 7 and in consultation with parents and students, adjust repertoire and teaching methods to suit individual needs.

My lessons include both technique and musicianship, and I work with each student to ensure that they gain the technical skills necessary to reach a high level of musical achievement and performance.

I am happy to prepare students for music exams when required and can also offer help and guidance for students working towards the NCEA music achievement standards.

Missed Lessons

If a student is absent from a timetabled lesson then the lesson will be forfeited unless 24 hours notice has been given. It may be possible to schedule a catch up lesson if sufficient notice is given, but I cannot guarantee this. In the event that I need to postpone a lesson I will endeavor to schedule a catch up lesson if at all possible.


All students are expected to practice their pieces, exercises and scales as detailed in their individual lessons. Regular daily practice is essential for students to make progress on their musical instrument.
