Teaching Info

Hi there!

My name is Frankie and I’m a professional musician and music teacher. I teach Saxophone, Clarinet, Flute and beginner accordion.

I have been teaching music for almost 20 years. I teach in high schools around Wellington as well as privately.

I am an active musician and play in a number of groups including Niko Ne Zna, The Cosmonauts, Battle-Ska Galactica and The Roseneath Centennial Ragtime Band. I have toured New Zealand and Australia and have performed on television. I have also had my original music featured in films.

Some topics covered in lessons include:

  • Tone production
  • Technique
  • Ear training
  • Reading music
  • Music theory
  • Improvisation/ learning how to jam.

I love to teach and I put a lot of effort into each of my students to ensure that they learn in a way which stimulates them and encourages them to continue improving and learning. Most importantly the lessons are fun!

Some comments from students:

‘Been going to Frankie for a couple of years now. Excellent tutor. Patient & encouraging. Would recommend anyone wanting to learn the sax to give Frankie a call.’- Glenn

‘I’ve been having Sax lessons with Frankie for several years. The saxophone is a challenging instrument to learn especially if you want a good grasp of the basics. Frankie makes learning all the various scales fun, and he mixes the lessons up to keep things fresh and inspiring. Frankie is always encouraging and pushes you to learn more. He is highly recommended.’- Antony

‘I have been getting flute lessons from Frankie almost three years and I highly recommend him. He is very positive and encouraging towards me as a student. He helped me to prepare for ABRSM, which I passed with a good score. The lessons are fun!’- Bobe
