Teaching Info

I love inspiring children and adults to learn and make music. I focus on finding out what a students passion is and incorporate that as much as possible into learning music.

I’m great with young kids to teens as well as ‘adults’ and making music fun for them. It’s so important to feel like you’re getting better all the time when you’re learning and one way to do that is to have more fun every time! I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t having a great time.

Teaching is done from my home studio in Kelburn, Wellington.
As well as teaching instruments I’ve learnt a lot about developing yourself and continuing to grow as an artist. Song writing, finding your audience, and learning to use computer software such as Logic/ProTools to create and compose music is something I am also very passionate about also.

I am so grateful for all my amazing teachers I have had and continue to have in my life. My greatest passion in life is music and it’s an incredible feeling when you get to pass on your knowledge and passion to others.
