I am Helen Tong, I have been teaching a variety of music styles in the Whangarei area for over five years.  I teach both from home and in some schools in the Whangarei area

I offer a individualized tuition program on Piano,  Keyboard,  Saxophone, Recorder and Harp (lever).  Examinations are offered for all instruments taught.  Examinations are primarily with NZMEB (NZ Music Exam Board)  or ANZCA (Australia NZ Cultural Association), all other exam boards are available on request.   NZMEB practical exams at grade 3 and beyond can attract NZQA credits towards all levels of NCEA music performance.
