Hello, my name is Govinda and I am a teacher of 2 years and have had the pleasure of teaching children, teens and adults through my private lessons. I am currently a student at the University of Auckland doing a bachelor’s of music composition. I have had a wide range of experiences with music technology, instruments, production, music theory and studies, as well as 5 years experience composing mainly for piano, and hope to use this interesting experience to provide just as interesting lessons.
Service and teaching: I aim to provide a one on one space to learn and grow as a musician, providing resources, feedback and general musicianship to students. I am strongly interested in students musical interests as this is what I structure my lessons around, providing a path and new insight into any field of interest.
About me: I am a pianist of 9 years, specializing in classical music but am able to teach beginner – early intermediate level jazz and Improvisation. I am also a bassist of 4 years, able to teach to intermediate level improvisation and general playing. I am currently doing a bachelor’s of music composition at the University of Auckland.
Styles and Disciplines Taught: Classical Piano, Piano Improvisation, Bass Improvisation, Composition, Music Studies and Music Theory.
About the lessons: My goal as a teacher is to find out my students musical interests and give them a relevant musical foundation to support their development . This involves a mix of theory, practical, experimentation and invention. What you can expect in the lesson is a good mixture between disciplined practice and the more fun application, making for an ambiguous musician.
