Piano Lessons – the Gift of Music

As a teacher I’m extremely mindful of being a facilitator of my students’ musical growth, encouraging them to develop technically, musically and personally with confidence, pleasure and at their own pace.

Enjoy the Gift of Music

Lessons with me are not just about learning to play the piano. I believe in developing the whole musician and provide a holistic approach to teaching, enhancing and extending all facets of music-making and appreciation.

For a more detailed look at the skills, concepts and activities I introduce to my students in their first year of piano lessons, please read A Journey of Discovery.

Please be aware...

I have a waiting list of prospective students. If you, or your children, would like to learn from me, you need to have your name on my waiting list as soon as possible. To find out more about how the list operates and get some idea of how long it may be before a lesson time is available, please visit the Waiting List page.

Piano Lessons Tailored for Every Student

I provide personalised tuition from my home studio in Waverley, Dunedin.  

My studio is also specially configured for virtual learning and online lessons are available.

I firmly believe a key component of the learning experience is establishing a trusting and sharing relationship between teacher and student. For me, the first step in building this relationship is to offer a free 30 minute introductory lesson so students can not only find out a little more about the piano, but also learn a little more about me and experience my teaching style.

highlight of our son’s week!

Body Family

I like having Jane as a teacher because she is kind and helps me understand the music.

Christopher Body

Piano lessons with Jane are the highlight of our son’s week! He began at the start of this year and we have been amazed at how he has progressed in his comprehension of music. There never seems to be a need to push him to practice as Jane seems to inspire him with her passion for music.

a wonderful piano teacher

Dean Bell

Jane has been a wonderful piano teacher for both myself and two daughters. Piano lessons are a weekly event that we as a family really look forward to. Her teaching style is structured yet relaxed and her real skill is that she is able to tailor her classes to the individual person learning, and level that they are at.As a “Mature” student (over 40 years old), Jane has listened to my request for less theory based teaching and more relevant Jazz/Blues type piano music. As a result I am learning musical pieces that I love to listen to, learn, and play. I would thoroughly recommend Jane to all those people thinking of taking up piano lessons!

I would not hesitate to recommend her for lessons

Meagan Hurley

Jane has been teaching my son for 5 years, he loves his lessons and has learnt so much. She is very kind and patient. I would not hesitate to recommend her for lessons. He never gets bored with his lessons and is allowed to choose the music he wants to play. Her lessons are always varied and fun.
