  • Qualifications: Certified 'Music for Young Children' teacher; Diploma Early Childhood Education; Post grad dip Special Education.


I have been teaching piano, guitar and ‘Music for Young Children’ in West Auckland since 2004. I have a special interest in providing music education for young children as this not only gives them an excellent start to life-long music skills, but also greatly enhances their development and abilities in all areas of learning. I have a background in early childhood education and special needs teaching and am a mother of two.
