Dear prospective students and parents,

Welcome to our page!

Based in Shirley, Christchurch, we are a Violin, Viola and Cello learning environment like no other. Not only do we offer individual lessons using methods and knowledge from teachers all over the world, (including color strings method for 5-8 year old’s,) but we also offer extra classes outside of the lessons to provide a fully rounded education.

Lessons on the instruments are taught one on one, online or in person once or twice a week with the option for those who are 8-18 to join in on our theory, ensemble or practice journal group activities at a minimal extra cost.  We hope to see you there soon!

Andrew and Amy

Teaching Info

Focused on being a musician as a whole rather than simply playing an instrument, we offer a wide rage of teaching using multiple different teaching methods including the Color Strings Method for ages 5-8, Essential Elements, Paul Rolland Technique, Piatti and Kummer Methods for cello, and more.

Alongside individual lessons on each instrument, students will get the opportunity to participate in extra classes as they wish at a minimal extra cost. These will include: Group theory classes (Individual theory lessons can be arranged), the opportunity to take part in ensembles with other like-minded students, practice workshops and competitions, and concerts.

Drawing from years of research, study, orchestral experience, ensemble experience, and personal knowledge, we aim to give our students the most fully rounded music education that we can.
