Music Lessons

I am a music teacher in Richards Bay and work mostly from my studio in Arboretum.

I am convinced that the learning and playing of a music instrument, enhances, affects, contributes to and enhances the brain and its development; that music is the brain foundation for maths and science; that motor and spatial development improves sport co-ordination; that music improves the brain’s ability to recall information thereby enhancing the learning experience.

I teach a range of instruments (Piano, Violin, Trumpet, Cello, Saxophone, Clarinet) and cater for all age groups and all levels. I also teach all the required prerequisite theory for all the UNISA grades.  I also teach adults – some mom’s come for lessons themselves in the mornings.

I enter students for exams when they are ready – UNISA, Trinity Guildhall or Royal School of Music.

Some statements up front: 1). I do not teach the piano syllabus of Trinity – my preference. 2). A keyboard is not a piano.

Lessons include an individual lesson of a half hour session at a set time each week.

I am able to supply music instruments at reasonable rates (called teacher discount) and provide the services of a piano tuner. Please contact me should you require anything in this regard.
