Scherzo is a music school operating primarily on the North Shore of Auckland. We offer one-to-one lessons in Piano, Guitar, Drums, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Saxophone, Violin, Cello, Voice, Recorder and Ukulele. Our aim is to make learning music fun, whilst developing a solid musical foundation. Skill areas offered include performance, theory, harmony, aural, sight-reading, musicianship, and history. This approach prepares the student for any musical endeavour whether aspiring to be a concert pianist, songwriter, producer, conductor, or to play for personal enjoyment. Students can customise their learning to meet their personal goals, such as learning a particular piece or preparing for a qualification.

Our students are motivated by a reward system and have many opportunities to share their music with friends and family through organised concerts. Exams are encouraged but are not a requirement. Our current pass rate is 100% and of that our distinction rate is 66% for grades 1-8.

We run one music academy, one Saturday morning school and various satellite studios:
