Soundworks Music School has two experienced, qualified teachers who come to Aokautere School to take music lessons on Thursdays during school-time.

Mary Kriechbaum teaches piano, and Christian Stafford teaches guitar (including acoustic, electric and bass), ukulele and drums, and they still have some vacancies.

You can see our teachers on our website.

Fees are not subsidized by the school, so are normal private lesson prices, ranging from: $18.50 for shared 30 min lessons, $23.50 for 20 minute individual lessons and $30 for 30-min individual lessons.
