Hello! My name is Emma Parkes (Mrs Parkes) and I offer lessons on Piano, Keyboard, Ukulele and Marimba at my home in Christchurch, NZ and I am also able to travel in the Christchurch area. To find out more about my teaching methods and class scheduling, you are welcome to browse the pages of this website and even book in a lesson with me.
My philosophy is that one size does not fit all. I tailor my lesson plans to each student’s interests and goals. I have found that it is more important to stimulate one’s interest in playing music, rather than to compel them to study a predetermined method. I am capable of teaching most styles of music including Contemporary styles, Classical and Jazz. 
Students who study with me typically find great joy in playing music, as well as great feelings of accomplishment in their success.
Please feel free to call me at any time. I am always happy to discuss your individual needs to determine if I am the best teacher for you.
