Piano Lessons at Mangaroa School
You’re just a few clicks away from your child’s next musical adventure!
Great choice – our group classes are the perfect way for beginners to get started.
Our weekly lesson price ($16.50) is all-inclusive and there are no hidden costs.
How does a group lesson work?
No matter how much time a beginner spends with a teacher, students can only learn so much in a week – They need time to practice new musical ideas. Group lessons take the pressure off young students and make the process more enjoyable.
As a first priority, we teach students to read music so they can practice independently – and this is where the magic happens! Under our guidance, students teach themselves to play the piano.
As long as the pieces are fun, students become active and engaged learners. This allows a teacher to move around the room and help students work at their own pace.
We don't have a keyboard/piano at home - does this matter?
While having an instrument at home does make a different to progress we appreciate there will be some hesitancy while you try to gauge your child’s level of interest and commitment. There are piano apps for tablets that we can recommend.
We also have a rent-to-own keyboard deal where we can help you pay down a keyboard over successive schools terms (or simply offer you a really good price on a brand new keyboard)
New Student Promotion!
All students who sign up for a free trial will go into a draw to win 10 weeks of free lessons and the ongoing use of a keyboard while they remain involved in our lessons. This competition is repeated every term 🙂

About the tutor
Lessons are taught by Danielle van der Zwaag. From a very young age, Danielle has had a desire to teach music and work with youngsters; Dynamite Music has provided a wonderful platform to combine both of these passions. She has more than 10 years experience teaching piano in a variety of settings and has a desire to make her lessons accessible to all abilities.
In addition to being a piano teacher, Danielle enjoys playing the pipe organ.
I’ve been part of the Dynamite Team since 2018. During that time I’ve enjoyed seeing the spark of delight on each student’s face when they learn to read music for the first time. My approach incorporates useful tools from a range of methods to ensure students make great progress at every stage.
Nuts and Bolts
The booker shows all our available class spots for new students. If these classes are your preferred option but you don’t see a time that suits, select the waitlist option and we’ll make contact to discuss. Each session runs at the same time each week during term time.
If you are a new student, your first lesson is a free trial. You’ll then have the option to keep your time for the rest of the term (and every term after that for as long as you continue with us).
