About The Tutor:
Logan Ellis has been teaching Music for 8 years, and has spent 15 years studying music through Cashmere High School, the Christchurch School of Music, MAINZ (Te Tai Poutini Polytech) and the University of Canterbury.
He enjoys playing the Drums, and has the pleasure of offering you one-on-one lessons on a weekly basis, customized to suit your own personal goals and preferences.
Logan's main goal is to assist his students towards becoming the best musicians that they can be.
Lesson Times & Availability
We teach a maximum of 48 private students per week - remaining lesson slots for new entrants are as follows:
- Mondays 5:30pm
- Tuesdays 6pm
- Fridays 5:30pm
Our lessons are generally 30 minutes in length - although we can do hour lessons if you prefer. Free first trial lesson for all new students!
One on One or Group Lessons?
From personal experience, Logan feels that one-on-one lessons are the best way to teach his students - this allows students to get the most practical experience during sessions. Parents are welcome to attend their child's lessons.
Entry Requirements for our Lessons
Our minimum requirements are that students are at least 5 years of age and understand the alphabet (Music Notation uses letters A-G). Total beginners are more than welcome.
Regarding Exams & Assessments
We can help you with preparing for Grading exams and/or NCEA assessments. We can also assist you in deciding upon setlists for live performances.
Expectations Regarding Practice
We don't expect you to practice for more than 2 x 20 minute sessions per week. We feel that it can be better to let our students aim for a lesser amount of time, and then encourage them to practice more if preferred.
The exception to this would be if an examination or performance was coming up. In that situation, we would expect our students to be practicing whenever possible, if not at least once per day.
How do payments work?
After the free first trial session, 30-minute lessons are $25 each. We accept fortnightly, monthly or term-based payments.
