Bio

Kia ora, I’m Flo – helping you find joy, confidence and freedom in making music. I believe learning music is a holistic undertaking that requires mind, body and soul connection. Once these things are aligned, one can find total freedom in their musical expression and creativity!

For the past few years, I have worked as an itinerant music teacher in high school and taught private lessons to all ages. I have also been studying Rongoā (Māori healing) for the past two years and have recently qualified as a practitioner. I have a strong passion for sound healing, holistic modalities and indigenous wisdom that I aspire to bring into my teaching practice. Throughout my career, I’ve been involved in various bands and groups as a jazz singer, trumpet player, backing vocalist, composer/producer, musical director and piano accompanist alongside teaching regularly. I enjoy a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, musical theatre, pop/rock, soul, classical, electronica, world music and more.

My favourite thing is seeing a student performing with confidence, freedom and love for the music, and being comfortable stepping outside their comfort zone! As a teacher and mentor I aim to guide students towards becoming well-rounded and enthusiastic musicians with a lifelong passion for playing/singing!


Teaching Info

  • $30 trial lesson/meeting (30 minutes)
  • Free assessment – to tailor the classes towards what the student is passionate about, set goals and find their strengths, needs and learning style!
  • Choice to work towards a Trinity exam (optional) – for some students it provides good motivation and a sense of achievement. Options for these are Musical Theatre/Singing/Classical Piano.
  • $60 per hour with options for 30, 45, or 60 minute lessons. Payment can be made in 4 week blocks or a whole term of 10 lessons.

Lessons involve both creative and technical skills – including breathwork, posture and body alignment, technique, improvisation, composition, aural practice, music theory, and student-centered learning material. Lessons are tailored to suit the student, taking into consideration the individual’s learning style, personal goals and interests.

All students have the opportunity to perform at concerts/showcases throughout the year and to sit exams. Not only do I teach individual instruments but I also combine piano/vocal or ukulele/vocal lessons, and can take small vocal groups.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
