Hi Everyone

Just letting you know Musiqhub Students are all heading to "The Stomach" recording studio 46 Lombard Street in Palmy to record a song and shoot a music video.  The song is Royals by Lorde which we have been going over in lessons this term, and we are going to do a guitar version of the song together. It's going to be heaps of fun as well as a cool first expericence of working in a real recording studio for alot of us :)

I have booked the studio from 2-4pm on Saturday 10th May. If students can arrive 15 minutes before hand that would be good to give me a chance to tune before we get into it . 

For parents this could be an opportunity to go and have a quiet coffee together at one of the cafes close by !

I'd recommend parking in the underground carpark at Harvey Norman which is free for 2 hours.

See you soon !

Just a quick e-mail to say we would like Luke to continue with guitar lessons at Rongotea school next year. Also we would like to say that we thought the end of year concert was fantastic. Jason (Luke’s dad) was so inspired he has gone out and brought new strings for his guitar and intends to have a “play around again” (maybe he can practice with Luke!) Thanks again Tania

Hi Craig Elton and myself (along with our other two children) would like to thank you immensely for the fantastic guitar concert you held a couple of weekends ago. We are not a "musical" family and having Charlie being so interested in the guitar has meant we have had to become interested by default. We have supported his weekly lessons and enjoyed listening to him practise (especially on his electric guitar). We couldn't have enjoyed the concert more and my husband said he would have "gone again the next night". So there is some feedback from some "unmusical" folk who really appreciated the time effort and high quality of your show. Thank you so much.

Hi Craig I have attached a video of you & Jacob playing "I Walk the Line". We are so proud of Jacob, he did so well. To be on stage playing in front of an audience with just the two of you is not something he would have been able to do a year ago. Chris & I want to thank you for everything you have taught Jacob. He has come a long way with his guitar and really enjoys it. We know he will keep it up. Thanks again. Regards Nikki

Hi Craig Jayden has really loved his lessons with you this year so we are wanting to re-enrol with you for next year, if you have a place for Jayden and for his older sister Mya that would be great.
