Community and Schools

“Enriching your community through
musical tuition is one of my greatest passions.”

Music Workshops for Schools

I am able to offer one off music workshops or ongoing programmes tailored to suit your school.

Presently and my most recent work has been teaching singing and rhythm, xylophones and a whole lot of fun musical activities! For 5-13 years at St Mary’s School and Hokitika Primary School.

Get in touch with me to discuss options for your school via email or phone. Happy to provide a quote.

Creative in Schools Grant

Thanks to the “Creative in Schools Grant”, I completed a very successful project for 20 weeks teaching Singing and Drumming at Hokitika School, we were able to resource the school with instruments and materials needed to run the project.

This could also be a possibility for your school! Funded by the Ministry of Education.

Please make enquiries regarding my availability, I can supply you with my C.V and referees.

Community Singing Workshops and Master Classes

Whether it’s the full blown vocal master classes that teaches you step by step vocal basics to advance technical vocal pedagogy or an organic tuition-less vocal discovery session, I’m passionately committed to ensuring your experience is uplifting and vibrant. My goal for beginners is to plant the singing seed to ensure you vocally blossom or for the advanced singer that you harness the journey of the voice for transformation and vocal development through all that is taught during our classes.

Singing workshops Allow self-expression, vocal discovery, all while sharing our learning with likeminded others “Aroha.”

Drum Workshops for Communities

My teaching first started with Drumming workshops 18 years ago. During this time, I taught numerous Drumming one day workshops, weekend courses and a bunch of 8-week rhythm foundation courses level 1,2 and 3 that led to stage performance level, stage productions and shows.

Singing workshops over the years developed into 8-week courses/master classes through adult education centres.

If you are interested in having a drumming workshop for your group, give me call or email.
