Forte School of Music

Welcome to Forte School of Music New Zealand


I'm Joy Liu, and am so proud to bring the fantastic Forte method of music education to Howick! 

The Music Education Centre started offering these special programmes in New Zealand over 15 years ago and now demand for the fun and innovative lessons has led to our very own Forte School. 

The Forte method puts the emphasis firmly on fun and is designed to build confidence at the same time as teaching music skills. Learning music at Forte means you will be learning in a dynamic, nurturing, musical environment, filled with enthusiastic people who love music and sharing it with others.

At Forte, you will learn how to understand the language of music. Your musical senses: hearing (aural), feeling for beat & time (rhythm), music reading and writing (theory), will develop along with the knowledge of how all of these combine together to make music. Through your musical development at Forte, you will discover how to express your inner feelings and creativity through music and how to write your own compositions.

Forte offers both class and one-to-one lessons. Learning with others in a family or group, is the most natural way for young children to learn. There are many delights and benefits from learning with others in a group at all ages and stages but if a private lesson is preferred, then it is best to wait until your child is at least 7 years of age.
Please come along and see what we have to offer - book a trial lesson NOW!
