Auckland’s leading music school offering piano lessons for beginners and advanced students on the North Shore

Simply Music Piano

Simply Music is the largest playing-based music education institution in the world. We are a worldwide organization of more than 700 dedicated Teachers offering innovative programs, from birth through the whole of life, promising a World where Everyone Plays.

Simply Music Piano is a remarkable, Australian-developed piano and keyboard program that offers a breakthrough in music education. This unique method has children, teens, adults and seniors playing great sounding blues, classical, contemporary and accompaniment piano pieces – from their very first lessons.

In the same way that we all learn to talk before we learn to read, Simply Music Piano temporarily delays music reading and introduces a revolutionary, ‘playing-based’ methodology. This remarkably natural approach to learning music introduces students to an array of unique concepts that unfold directly onto the keyboard.

Fundamental Goal:
The Simply Music Method is designed to maximize the likelihood of students acquiring and retaining music as a lifelong companion.

Specific Goals:
Our aim is for students to:

  • Experience their musicianship as a natural self-expression.

  • Play a vast repertoire covering a broad array of musical styles and genres.

  • Develop the ability to self-generate. i.e. the ability to progress independently. This includes developing a foundation of music reading, writing, composition, improvisation, arrangement, structure and theory etc.

  • Have a highly positive, self-affirming experience throughout the music learning process.

My experience with Eliette has been great, I have learnt more than what I used to learn. I understand bars, time signatures and how to sing along to pieces. I know many songs off by heart and can perform in front of an audience. Eliette is a kind, understanding teacher and understands what is right for me. So far this year I have had a great experience with her

Eliette’s teaching method is so engaging that Milla now walks up to the piano everyday (many, many times..). She had traditional lessons briefly last year but never even looked at the piano at home and thought it was boring. After just a few lessons she can play complete songs! Truly special and most of all: fun
