Hi I’m Annabelle; I started playing music at age 7 with recorder, and violin, piano, guitar, singing and trumpet.
Since then I have been heavily involved in music, playing in the Tauranga City Brass Band since 2016 and various other music groups on occasion such as the Bay of Plenty Symphonia, Youth Philharmonic Tauranga, Bay of Plenty Music School and Rhapsody Rotorua Honours Concert Band.
In 2016 I was selected for the National Secondary Schools Brass band, and again in 2017. I was also selected for the New Zealand Youth Symphonic Winds in 2017 and 2018. One of 12 selected throughout all of New Zealand for the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra National Mentoring program in 2018.
I’ve been teaching music since 2015, first at the Bay Play Music School and then Mount Maunganui Intermediate. I’ve experience teaching beginners Piano/keyboard, Recorder, Trumpet/Cornet and Music Theory.
Lessons are tailored to each student’s individual needs, goals, interest and learning style. I think it’s important to have fun and enjoy your instrument, while getting a strong grounding knowledge in the basics. I offer flexible lessons and am able to help students prepare to sit a Trinity Exam however, this is entirely optional and may not suite everyone. I do find that sitting an exam creates a good sense of motivation and achievement. I am very happy to start out students at any age on a brass instrument and assist through NCEA exams, exams and recitals.
If you need a brass instrument for lessons, please let me know as I have instruments available for rent.
