Hello snapppleapple, yes, guilty as charged :)

Are you looking for only theory? No piano practical lessons involved at all?

Hmm, I'm not too sure about teachers who teach only theory. Maybe you can try Yamaha.

Have - there are music schools who teach accelerated music theory to grade 5, and also just theory for up to grade 8. There are definitely more schools doing those accelerated courses up to grade 5 theory than beyond. Look around the various websites, eg. Medley Music School(SAFRA Toa Payoh), Music Workshop (Thomson), Verve Music School (AMK)...

I know of a teacher who teaches theory only, most of those students that seeks theory lessons from her are usually those whose main instrument isn't piano. If you would like her contact, you can let me know :)

Too bad I don't know you then. haha. I engaged a piano tr last time just solely to teach my elder boy who plays violin for his grade 5 theory. They worked at it for 4mths before the exam. Eventually he wanted to do the higher grades. He's doing the gr 8 theory this coming exam. I sent him to a music school nearby. Only the Principal teaches the high grades for theory.

Typically how long would these courses last? How many sessions/hours per week? What are the fees like? Do they have holiday crash courses? Any within easy reach of Queenstown? Asking for my 14yo daughter who plays guitar for fun but hasn't learned music formally. She would be interested to learn some formal theory.

Alternatively, is there a good website where she can self-learn? I can help her a bit as I learned as a child, but can't really teach properly.

Does that school happen to be in Kovan area?

And even if it was back then, I think I wouldn't have such luck too as I'm now cutting down on my teaching time haha.
