I hablack-bass-3-bestve over 15 years of experience teaching guitar and bass guitar both to children and adults of all abilities. My formal qualifications include a Bachelors degree in jazz performance from Massey University in Auckland as part of the New Zealand School of Music. I also spent two years in the United States, studying under jazz bass legend Richard Davis.

I regularly perform all around New Zealand in various groups including The Soul Pit Orchestra, 2s A Crowd and Boom! Boom! Deluxe. I write and record original music under the name Henika.

My specialties include jazz, funk, soul, blues, improvisation, theory and song-writing but I am happy to help with any style. All lessons are customised to each individual’s specific needs and interests.

I teach both guitar, bass guitar and double bass from my studio in Silverdale, Auckland.

I am also available to teach home recording and music production using any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation).

If you live too far away, I also offer lessons on-line via ZOOM. Many of my students prefer ZOOM sessions not only because there is no travelling involved but also because they can prepare for the class better and also can record the session for review later on.

I am prepared to offer ONE FREE 20 MINUTE TRIAL to see if ZOOM lessons are for you! Contact me for more details.
