The Tutors:

Gary-and-Nikki2.jpgNikki Berry's background is as a songwriter, community choir leader, arranger and singing teacher. Over the years she has trained as an audio engineer, been an instrument maker, played bass and guitar in a range of original bands, and taught general music skills to adults and young people. She has trained in the Estill approach to singing, and the Kodály approach to music education, and leads workshops for singers throughout New Zealand.

Gary Easterbrook grew up in Whangarei, and has flown airplanes, driven trucks, worked in forestry, flirted with television... the list goes on. His musical career has been equally varied - from heavy rock to bluegrass and country, blues and jazz to world music. He learned piano as an eleven year old, took up guitar at fourteen, then bass guitar and back to piano (with a dabble on drums along the way). He's now happy on all these instruments, and also arranges music for choirs. Besides music, Gary loves surfing, sea kayaking and photography.
