My name is Liz Abbott and I have been playing the piano since I was 7!

Although classically trained and qualified with an LTCL Teachers Diploma I am excited to have recently become a Licensed Simply Music Piano teacher.

I am now offering private and group piano lessons to students of all ages using Simply Music’s innovative playing based method which will have you playing a wide variety of music with both hands starting at your very first lesson!

Teaching Info

The Simply Music Piano method is based on the belief that everyone is deeply, naturally musical and its goal is to help you attain a lifelong relationship with music! This is achieved through its unique playing based method that delays the reading process in the same way that we learn to talk before we learn to read. The program offers a wide variety of great sounding music including classical, blues, contemporary and accompaniment pieces which will develop your natural self expression from the first lesson.

It is never too late to start playing the piano and the Simply Music Piano method is a highly positive self-affirming process for all ages!

I offer a free 45 min introductory session where you can find out more about this exciting program and how it can work for you!

My studio is based at my home in Doctors Point, Waitati. I am also available to teach at other venues by arrangement.
