Listing #: 754171816
Location: Red Beach
About: Qualified Piano Teacher (ATCL Teachers)
Services offered: Piano lessons for all ages
Areas serviced: Hibiscus Coast / Rodney District
Availability: Mondays - Saturdays. Contact me for current available times.
Background: I come from a musical family and thus was exposed to various forms of music from an early age. Played the tenor horn in a local brass band, several years on the viola, singing etc, but my passion was always the piano.

I only started the piano when I was 10 years old, but by the age of 12 - I was one of the regular organists at Church. It was then that I started taking exams (thru Trinity College), and scored 97% in my very first exam (Grade 4). With my natural strengths of sight reading and theory, together with an excellent piano teacher at the time - I was sitting ATCL Performers just prior to my 16th birthday. Under the guidance of Vivienne McLean (Dunedin), I passed my ATCL (Teachers) at the age of 20.

I have been teaching the piano part-time over the past 35 plus years - fitting it around raising three children, living overseas and my ‘other job’ of being an RN (both on the ward, and as an educator).

I credit my piano skills to 95% hard work (practice) and 5% talent! And while I tend to impart that mentality to my pupils, I also believe that learning to play is to be an enjoyment and not a chore. Each pupil is very different in natural abilities, personality, strengths and weaknesses - and thus I adjust my teaching approach accordingly.

Spaces are available both before and after school, plus Saturday mornings. Lessons are 1/2 hour and cost $25.00 per lesson. Lesson books / material (except for theory books) are available for loan, which are then returned and passed onto other pupils. This helps reduce the cost.

Linda was such a great teacher to my 3 children. Not only was she was very patient and gentle while teaching the children, she built a relationship with them where they very comfortable with her. They were always looking forward to their lessons with her. They never felt that piano practice was a chore because Linda always made piano lessons so interesting. Thank you Linda for being a great teacher!

It has always been my dream to learn piano since I was a kid. Linda has helped me to make this dream come true. Because the lesson was very interesting and easy to understand, it made me want to practice at home. I often practice 4-5 hours on days off because I couldn't wait to show Linda what I have done in the next lesson. Linda has no longer just my piano teacher, she has become a very important friend in my life! Wherever we are, music will always keep us in touch!
