With an outstanding background in piano performance and over 8 years of teaching experience, Gabrielle Peake brings both her passion and her expertise to The Music Room, helping students create and find joy through music.

I’m Gabrielle, a piano teacher and pianist based in Kingsland, Auckland. I grew up in Te Awamutu, and have been ensconced in music my whole life. I began playing the piano at 5 and went on to study piano at The University of Waikato before completing my Masters at The Universtiy of Auckland graduating with First Class Honours in Piano Performance in 2011. I jetsetted to London after completing my studies to successfully audition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. After a few hefty cups of tea I decided not to embark on the London music scene and enjoyed a couple of years playing without further study.

After living and teaching English in Vietnam this last year, whilst having the most eye opening experiences I have been inspired to come home and start a piano teaching studio. I have been teaching piano part-time with students of all ages and levels since 2006. Learning about how we learn and the social significance of music are topics I delve into. I am continually inspired by my fellow music students and life long teachers Katherine Austin and Rae de Lisle and am excited to teach by way of facilitating a love for learning and music.
