I am Surangika (Sue) Senanayake, currently a teacher with New Zealand Modern School of Music. In my career of teaching music, which spans over 30 years, I have the experience of teaching pupils of many cultures. My expertise in teaching piano/keyboard lies mainly with children, although, it extends to adults as well.

My love for teaching music and getting assistance at home, was my inspiration for writing Help Me Learn Music, written under the pen name, Melody J. Smith.

It is my aim, to make sure that the pupil enjoys learning music, in order to have a fulfilling music education.
