One-to-one music lessons

(in-person or online!)

    Welcome! Scherzo is a music school based on the North Shore of Auckland. Our aim is to make learning music fun, whilst developing a solid musical foundation.  This approach prepares the student for any musical endeavour whether aspiring to be a concert pianist, songwriter, producer, conductor, or to play for personal enjoyment.  Students can customise their learning to meet their personal goals, such as learning a particular piece or preparing for a qualification.

Ages 4+ (adult beginners welcome)

Our younger students learn through traditional instruction interspersed with games and activities to prevent learning from becoming mundane. When a student is at an appropriate level, they are encouraged to sit an examination, though this is not a requirement. Lesson lengths are flexible, so you can find the best option for your child's concentration span.


Become a confident performer!

Performance opportunities are given to every student through organised private concerts, which are scheduled every term. Performing is never compulsory and the atmosphere is very relaxed to foster a love of performance rather than creating a high-pressure environment. These opportunities also ensure that students who choose to sit exams are able to air their pieces before examination day. Watch an example video here.

Earn prizes!

We have an incentive scheme to encourage regular practice in our students- students collect weekly tokens (if they have successfully practiced at home) which they can exchange for prizes at our token shop! Our students love music and consistently achieve their personal goals. View some testimonials.
