Hi There!

We’re Spiderhands Productions, a Christchurch NZ-based company that specializes in providing Music Lessons to students of all ages, stages, and musical backgrounds.

Our passion lies in offering Professional, Enjoyable, and Affordable Tuition Services to those that want to become skilled instrumentalists, songwriters, producers, and/or performers.

We teach a wide variety of instruments, and have done so since our company was founded in 2014.

We offer free trial lessons to all new students – and should you enjoy the first session, you’re more than welcome to continue with tuition, for as long as you need. Some of our students have attended 200 lessons, and have learned multiple instruments as well as studio recording and music production!

We mention all this because, the truth is – we don’t just teach our students the ways of mastering their chosen instrument. We also teach music theory, composition, performance skills, studio production and everything else required to become a fully independent musician!

This is because the modern music industry requires more than just a “skilled performer”; successful musicians in the 21st Century are those that have all the required tools, to make the most of what’s on offer within the increasingly competitive climate of the international music industry.

In essence – we aim to cover everything required, so that our students can become Knowledgeable, Confident, and Happy Musicians.

Logan Ellis has been teaching Music (privately, and then through Spiderhands Productions) for 12 years, and has spent at least 20 years studying music through Cashmere High School, The Christchurch School of Music, MAINZ (Te Tai Poutini Polytech), and the University of Canterbury, in addition to mastering the various instruments and styles that he teaches to his students.

Our Lesson Studio is located in Hassals Lane, Waltham.

As of this point in time, we offer 1-on-1 Music Tuition to anyone keen to learn.

Currently, we offer lessons within our Music Studio in Hassals Lane, Waltham. We usually teach up to 60 students per week. 

Our Available Lesson Slots (updated daily) are as follows:

Our Music Lessons are typically 30 minutes in length, though we can do hour lessons if preferred (depending on availability).

While we understand that fortnightly lessons can be more convenient for some people, we do not offer fortnightly lessons. We have found that student typically do better if they’re able to come in on a weekly basis.

"I'm happy that I've learned to play the drums - I know what everything is and that I've learned new beats each week!"


"I think that the way the the material has been presented is really good and that it's good that Logan was patient and genuine."


"I've always found it hard to learn from others and always struggled with school and learning in general but Logan did an excellent job in teaching me. I don't know what Logan does differently to others, but whatever he does, he should just keep doing it. I really liked his casual and carefree attitude in teaching. Logan made it feel like nothing was a hassle or an issue."


"I like that there's a relaxed atmosphere, open discussions about drumming, that Logan answered my many questions. Good to be able to break down the songs as well (during lessons)!"


I loved it here at Spiderhands. The teacher here is patient and he supports you no matter what happens.


Logan has substantial music knowledge and is always patient, down to earth and encouraging. The lessons are always enjoyable and I particularly like the way he helps me reach my musical goals.
