Amalia is absolutely passionate about teaching.
She has been teaching music for over 25 years to students of all ages and abilities. Since the 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes, Amalia changed direction in her teaching and trained in the world recognised method of Suzuki Violin and Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) as she felt the traditional method teaching the violin starting with music reading and using the exam system was stressful to students and not producing the desired results that she was looking for. Amalia wants her students to develop a love for music and use their instrumental skills to express themselves and cope in this this highly challenging environment we live in. Her particular interest is teaching students who have learning, behavioral or emotional challenges and is currently doing her Certicate in Music Therapy to support her violin and SECE qualifications. Her students are constantly recognised for their high standard of playing and frequently receive distinction for their exams. Amalia is a registered Suzuki Violin and SECE teacher.
