Providing affordable, enjoyable music tuition to primary and intermediate students in the Hutt Valley.

Gallery Music Centre is part of the Ministry of Education’s out-of-hours programme and operates on Saturday mornings at Avalon Primary School, Lower Hutt.

Group teaching offers a valuable chance for your child to see other children learning in a musical environment, and the incentive to try to emulate his or her peers.

Our teachers are highly qualified and dedicated professionals who strive to give your child the best music education at very low cost.  Classes are heavily subsidised by the Ministry of Education for Primary and Intermediate school aged students.

Our classes provide:

  • A parallel emphasis on instrument skill and wider musical knowledge development
  • Theory
  • Note Reading
  • Links to the New Zealand Music Curriculum
