About Our Lessons

Learning music requires the development of skills and knowledge along with the retention of prior learning. With this in mind MusiqHub has developed a structured curriculum that utilizes a sequential lesson process. Skills in the physical ability to play are developed alongside an understanding of music. Songs and activities are provided for reinforcement.

About JP

JP has been teaching the guitar at a number of Auckland schools since 2014. His patience, easy going nature and ability as a teacher have seen hundreds of guitar students enjoy his lessons since then. JP has a Diploma in Contemporary Music Performance, as well as extensive experience playing in bands, touring and recording music.

“Henderson has a marvellous knack of writing plays for young people (8-15-year-olds), and all would-be writers for this age group should study them carefully for they will learn how to write intelligently without being hard to understand, humorously without straining for laughs, movingly without being sentimental, and seriously without being patronising.” – Laurie Atkinson, Theatre reviewer, 13/5/93
