My name is Nicole Leonard and I teach one on one piano and keyboard lessons for all ages, from children to adults, from beginners onwards. Music is my life-long passion, and I have over 40 years of musical experience - playing in orchestras, bands, and shows, and teaching musical instruments.
My music studio is in Waterview, Auckland - a convenient central to west Auckland location, handy to Point Chevalier, Avondale, Mount Albert, Mount Roskill, New Lynn, Blockhouse Bay, Green Bay, and all neighbouring suburbs.
Piano is a great musical instrument to learn, as you learn to read music in treble and bass clefs, and to coordinate both hands together. Piano players can go on to learn other musical instruments more easily. Piano can be played solo, in duets, with small or large groups, and to accompany other instruments, singers and dancing. Pianos and keyboards can be played in bands of many styles, including pop, rock, jazz, blues, reggae, soul, R'n'B, you name it!
Whatever your age, you can learn to play the piano and read music. Whether you are a youngster just starting out in music, or someone who always wanted to take piano lessons, or if you played when you were younger and want to return to it again, lessons can be customised to suit your needs. Regular lesson times are available on weekdays after school and evenings, and on weekends. Hope to hear from you soon!
