Music Lessons with Karla
Music is a wonderful, fun, social skill to learn. I offer music lessons in violin, music theory and coaching in chamber music from my home teaching studio in Brooklyn, Wellington and my studio near the centre of Blenheim. Follow the links in each section to find out more about the music lessons I offer!
I believe that creativity blossoms in a positive learning environment and I strive for this in all of my teaching activities. I aim to make lessons fun whilst providing an excellent technical and musical grounding for my students. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of each student whether that is to learn to read music, develop advanced violin technique or simply to explore the wonderful repertoire that is available for the instrument. Lessons in Wellington cost $30 per half hour or $55 per hour for the more advanced student. Read More>>Lessons in Blenheim cost $35 per half hour or $65 per hour for the more advanced student.

I love teaching adults violin, whether you are a total music beginner with a lifelong ambition or if you are blowing the cobwebs off a rusty skill. I tailor my teaching approach to your individual learning style to create an experience which is rewarding and interesting. Read More>>
Measure Your Progress
For those who like qualifications, I am happy to teach to either ABRSM or Trinity exam syllabuses but am equally comfortable with helping you to reach your own milestones if that is what you prefer!
I can teach Music Theory from starting out with the basics like note names and rhythm right through to advanced counterpoint. I am comfortable teaching to either the ABRSM or Trinity exam syllabuses to suplement your musical instrument learning so don’t let Grade 5 Music Theory put you off persuing your music playing dream!

What could be better than playing music with friends?! Chamber Music was the 18th century version of Masterchef so if your duo, trio, quartet/anytet is in need of a little more flavour or finese, do get in touch. I also offer coaching tailored for chamber music competitions such as the NZCT chamber music contest.
