I believe the only way to learn music is to experiment with your instrument there is no wrong or right. As a young girl that’s what I did my teacher showed me how it was done and then he allowed me to join in his concerts
I started out learning how to tune a guitar plugging it in an amplifier correctly setting up the keyboard to a PA system. Learning how to take care of your musical equipment
Cleaning them with the right products.
Seeing and hearing, just doing it and have a teacher that gives you on the job experience. In my opinion is key to be a competent musician
I am a professional singer as well. I sing all kinds of styles Pop Music to the Classical Crossover Music.
I play keyboards and I arranged professional music tracks for singers and have collaborate songwriters and worked with other musicians
I also have skills in sound recording Engineering.
I am not a piano teacher I teach electronic keyboards. And this means that my students have to have a background in piano playing and also in the music theory knowledge that goes with the different graded piano exams in order to become competent keyboard players - as it is two different disciplines.
My keyboard students will not only learn to play the piano while I am teaching them they will learn to orchestrate music. They will also learn to use music software and they will learn to accompany themselves and others using a keyboard.
My singing students will also learn music theory and learn to play keyboards as part of their singing lessons, in order for them to later accompany themselves and develop their singing. Learning an instrument help singing students to develop an ear and helps them to tune their singing voice. It also helps them with rhythm. And in general, makes them more confident and competent musicians, as the singing voice is also a musical instrument - only it is a live instrument, instead of a man-made instrument like a piano or a guitar.
My charges are $55 for 45 minutes and $70 for 1 hour. I do not provide half an hour lessons - I believe it is too short and it does not benefit the student nor does it benefit the parent. I do not feel comfortable charging people a sum of money knowing that they will get very little if no value, for the money they are paying.
if you are willing to pay for music lessons as just a fun thing for your child to do, for a half an hour every week, then I am not the right teacher
However if you are serious about music lessons - and if your child has an aptitude for music and want to enrol in my lessons, I will be delighted to be her/ his teacher/tutor/coach.

A quick background: From a young age Veronica was lucky enough to be associated with professional musicians who recognised her talent. They taught, nurtured and supported her while she was learning and they provided her with many opportunities to perform in public and at their shows.
At the age of 14, she performed at a Variety Artists Annual Ball, which was held in Auckland, New Zealand. In the audience was the patron of the club, the late Rt. Hon. Sir Robert Muldoon, a previous Prime Minister of New Zealand and his wife, Lady Muldoon.
In the years to follow, she would gain valuable on the job experience as a singer, a musician and a team player. At the age of 17, she had enough confidence in her ability as a musician to go solo and has performed at various venues and in front of all kinds of audiences ever since.
In the year 2008, she had the pleasure to perform for the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, the Prime Minister of New Zealand at a dinner given in the Prime Minister’s honour.
Years and hours of practice, of learning, on the job training, of commitment and dedication, has helped Veronica to ‘morph’ into the professional solo performer and musician she is now. To her, every member of an audience is special, a dignitary and nothing gives her more pleasure than to witness the progress of a student.
