Welcome to Six Strings Music Academy, an owner operated business, located in Marlborough, Aotearoa. Six Strings is run by music teacher Glenn Offord and his wife Della, alongside a handful of dedicated tutors.
Now meet Glenn Offord, musician, head teacher, mentor, and the heart behind our institution.
His journey into the world of music began over 25 years ago when he faced a life-altering challenge, losing 95% of his eyesight. In the face of adversity, he discovered solace, inspiration, and purpose in music. For Glenn, music transcended mere notes and melodies; it became his passion, and his driving force for personal growth.
Adjusting to life as a blind teenager, Glenn's commitment to music was unwavering. He assumed the role of music prefect during his last year of college and continued his musical education at Victoria University, the New Zealand School of Music, and Trinity College London.
This journey has honed his craft and expertise, allowing him to inspire countless students and set them on their own musical paths. Since establishing Six Strings in Marlborough a decade ago, Glenn has been imparting his knowledge and love for music to numerous students, enriching the musical landscape of our beautiful region.
