What I offer

What Amelia's String Academy offers you



Lessons are tailored to each student.

30min, 45min or 60min lessons. 

Accepting students in Tauranga, NZ & San Diego, USA

Group classes

Weekly 30min/45min/1hr group classes.


 Classes focus on review, new and old technique, ensemble skills, listening, rhythm and more. 



I offer weekly chamber music coachings throughout the year. Individual or pre-formed groups are welcome.

Chamber music is one of the most beneficial, supportive and fun ways to improve your playing. Not only will students refine fundamental skills such as rhythm, pitch, timing and dynamics, chamber music also develops creative thinking, co-ordination, memorisation, social and emotional skills.


Students have the opportunity to perform throughout the year as a chance to share their hard work with family and friends, as well as to hear and support their studio mates.

Performing is a vital part of a violinists/violists education, recital/rehearsal attendance & involvement is required for studio recitals.

Scale classes

Playing Scales together will promote greater technical facility, better pitch, and a greater architectural understanding of the fingerboard.


These classes will provide the essential foundation for playing the violin enabling the violinist to creatively express their repertoire.

Three times weekly are held on zoom.
