Learn the language of music.

Music is more than just notation on a page. It’s a feeling, a story and a form of communication.

With qualifications in early childhood education and music, Louise Lindsay uses a play-based approach in helping her students learn and feel music through their bodies. She believes in teaching the joy of music, not just academics.

Older students also benefit greatly from a fun and relaxed approach to learning. The more a child is laughing and engaged during their lessons, the more learning they will retain.

Whether you are looking to learn for leisure or to reach an AMAB grade, Louise can help you.

Gumnut Music Studio

Welcome to our purpose-built studio filled with inspiring resources and quality instruments. The space has been designed with imaginative, child-lead learning at its heart. 

In addition, we have a large front yard with invitations to play for children. This is a space students enjoy before and after their lessons. Siblings also enjoy playing here while waiting. An undercover patio with a lounge space overlooks the yard. 

Additionally, we provide an office space with complimentary wifi for parents who would like to work during their child’s lesson.


We focus on the whole student

Our students benefit greatly from a fun and relaxed approach to learning. We focus on providing an environment where children can explore not only their instrument but also their individuality. We use a diverse range of techniques and tools to empower students, leaving them with a sound understanding of the musical language.
