Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”

Victor Hugo



"We can't recommend Gray enough as a music teacher. My 9 year old daughter has learnt so much in such a short time. She was desperate to be able to play guitar, and with non-musically minded parents, she went knowing nothing. Within a few lessons, she was playing basic tunes and chords and could sing us songs, which has boasted her confidence no end, and it's wonderful watching her develop her music skills and blossom. Gray is an incredibly knowledgeable, talented, kind and patient teacher, who has been wonderful for her to learn from." Emma

Welcome to the Mountain Music School page!

This private music school, commenced in 1999, has taught hundreds of hinterland children how to play a musical instrument.
Adult students welcome too.
Lessons are taught one to one at 6 Sandy Street Pomona in a music room that allows students to explore a number of instruments.

No previous musical experience is necessary.

Gray's natural teaching style is to explore and share music with the students. Many of his students have gone on with music beyond high school to play in pop/rock bands on the Coast and in Brisbane. Some have become professional musicians and music teachers themselves.

A range of musical styles are covered from classical to pop, rock & Jazz. Gray has previously taught high school classroom music at Cooloola Christian College in Gympie, brass at Brisbane Boy's College and piano at St Thomas More primary school at Sunshine Beach. He holds number of university music qualifications and has a Blue Card.

Lessons for children and adults are currently being offered Tue - Thu for piano, electric keyboard, drums, guitar, bass guitar, singing and music theory.

Piano/electric keyboard is a good place to start a student's musical journey - children from ages 6 and up once they have commenced grade 1.


High school/TAFE students doing music as an elective subject are most welcome if they need additional help with theory, instrument playing, composition or assignments.


Sandy Street lesson prices. $35-25min. $50-50min.

Prices per term $350 - 10 lessons

Terms usually match the 10 week State School terms.

Best thing is to try a few lessons first to see if students are comfortable before committing to term payments.
