“Apollo Music is an extremely professionally run organisation that we can’t speak highly enough of. We love the way the guitar tutors have been so willing to tailor the lessons towards getting the best NCEA results for our daughter including song selection and practicing different techniques. Thank you so much for all you do for your students.”
