Piano Lessons

Private piano & keyboard lessons

A qualified piano and keyboard teacher, I have taught students of many styles and abilities for the past 30 years – both in Aotearoa NZ and overseas.

I am classically trained but am experienced at teaching everything from classical to pop, including jazz and theory. A seasoned performer, I can also teach basic singing skills for those who want to learn to accompany themselves on the piano. I take pride in tailoring lessons to suit you, ensuring your enthusiasm for music is encouraged and maintained.

I generally teach from my home in Somerfield and all lessons are one-on-one. If you have a family of three or more who are all wanting lessons, let’s talk about me coming to you.

Price guide (prices negotiable for back-to-back family bookings):

$25: 20 minute beginner lesson (suitable for ages four to 10)
$40: 30 minute beginner lesson (includes practical and theory)
$50: 40 minute intermediate lesson (includes practical and theory)

Some students like to do exams, some learn purely for their own pleasure. I believe I can teach anyone who wants to learn – regardless of their reason for taking up music. While not compulsory, I encourage students to study music theory – giving them a more rounded understanding of music.

I have plenty of experience with the music industry and can advise if you’re keen to join a band or get gigs. I’m also an experienced songwriter and can help guide you if this is your goal.

I’m happy to meet you for a free consultation before you decide whether you’d like to take up piano or keyboard lessons. To arrange a meeting, please contact me.
