We are a newly found company; just very recently launched in Auckland. We started off in Sydney, Australia from 2016, with piano & theory lessons. At the moment we offer piano & theory lessons in South Auckland. We aim to expand in the future with a wide array of instrument lessons all over Aotearoa!
At Music for Me, we do things a little differently. Our lessons are tailored to each student’s musical needs just like most other companies, but our approach is much more engaging & ‘hands on’. We nurture our students with different types of games & a myriad of interesting activities; steering away from the traditional, boring method of rote learning an instrument so many others simply follow. Our aim is for children to learn the piano in a positive, supportive & most importantly, fun learning environment! We strongly believe in ‘learning through play’ to facilitate much higher, deeper understanding of concepts, rather than simple repetition, to substantially improve musical cognition. We also guide students with activities for them to continue the fun at home and we teach them how to actually practice. Most teachers harp on to their students about practice, perhaps reminding how to constructively practice every now & then. But without properly delving into efficient practice, students progress is a slow & painful process for them. At Music for Me, we show the crucial importance of practice & how to actually practice, in an engaging way. We do a regular, deep delve into practice methodologies with our students in a way which makes them want to actually practice (we all know how hard that is).
If you have any queries about our teaching philosophy, feel free to reach out to discuss the Music for Me way.
We look forward to meeting & teaching you!

26/1 My daughter had been learning under Maddie for 4 years, and I am grateful for all the teaching she has done for her. Maddie knows how to engage her students by teaching them through various fun methods to keep each class entertaining and engaging. This has resulted in her creating a close bond with my daughter as well as a safe and comfortable atmosphere for her to open up and play. In addition, she has great taste in songs to recommend, and I appreciated her flexibility in schedule as it had saved me many times due to unforeseen circumstances. I am grateful for the teaching she has provided my daughter over these years. Originally posted on Google Business Page

27/1 Maddy teaches my 3 young boys piano every week. Although the lessons are online, Maddy ensures the lessons are interactive through the warm up games and activities. My boys enjoy the lessons and I am blown away with how much they have learnt. They thoroughly enjoy their lessons & are constantly wanting to play the piano. I am really happy that although other children their age may be glued onto tech & screens, my boys are glued to the piano & get that much needed mindfulness. Originally posted on Google Business Page
