Initially trained in Ballet, Jazz and Tap with formal qualifications from the Royal Academy of Dance, Ra has always had a passion for the arts.

While completing her Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Auckland, Ra became heavily involved in the music scene. After being scouted by overseas agents, she left New Zealand at the age of 23 to perform in 5 star hotels in over 10 different Countries.

Ra discovered her love of teaching when she began tutoring students at the International Music Institute in Abu Dhabi.

She has a passion for helping those with special needs and those who are less fortunate than others.

Teaching Info

I like to begin with a free consultation with the student – From here, I will gain an understanding of the student’s goals and plan their lessons/program to cater to the individuals needs.

The most important thing to remember is that Music is enjoyable, and there should always be an element of fun.
