My name is Stephie and I am a musician and music teacher specialising in jazz and contemporary vocals, musical theatre, classical and modern piano, ukulele, and combined piano/vocals. I currently work as an itinerant music teacher in schools and take private music lessons (vocals/piano/ukulele) at my home studio on weekday afternoons. My swing band The Lindy Tops regularly performs at casual and corporate gigs and at various vintage themed events around Auckland, and I also perform as resident singer with a big band. Before moving to Auckland from Palmerston North – where I studied singing and musical theatre with Kathi Craig – I was active in my local theatre community both as a stage performer and as rehearsal/show pianist. I have accompanied singing groups for many years and often accompany my students for live performances. I can teach a wide range of styles and genres for piano and vocals and also music theory, improvisation and comping, and basic jazz techniques. I have experience teaching all ages (from 6-60+) and levels from beginner to grade 5. Every student is different therefore I like to tailor lessons to the individual’s needs and interests. My fees are very affordable at $50 per hour, with lessons being 30-60 minutes. I have my own studio at my home in Mt Eden and can also occasionally travel to students’ homes within Auckland central. Please send me a message if interested in booking a half price trial lesson or if you have any general questions. I would love to hear from you!
Lessons are tailored to each individual’s needs, interests and music goals. Students will learn practical skills like theory, comping, and sight reading along with creative skills such as improvisation, playing by ear, composition etc.
