Keyboard lessons with Sarena Close

Sarena Close – Keyboard Tutor

My name is Sarena Close. I’m 21 and have been heavily involved in the Christchurch music scene for three years. I am currently in my third year studying towards a degree in Musical Arts, specialising in Piano.

My experience includes teaching at primary and intermediate schools around Canterbury, and also regularly performing live around Christchurch with a duo and full band. I am available for vocal lessons through Clevetown Studios to learn how to play Piano not only as a soloist but to understand the roll a pianist plays in the bigger picture of a live band or on a recorded track.

I am passionate about music and I love to teach so I can pass on what I have learnt so far and inspire others to go further.
