Maggie Jeffries

Music teacher & Ruamahanga team leader

I was born in the Wairarapa and, after living in Wellington for 25 years, returned here and now we live on a rural property up the Waingawa valley in the foothills of the Tararuas filled with native plants, chooks, ducks, cats, a dog. My husband Dave and I have five children and twelve grandchildren.

I love teaching, choirs, singing, listening to and making music, walking in the bush, books, cryptic crosswords, bike riding, interior decorating, keeping a large garden and creek looking good, quilting (a bit of an obsession) knitting, stitching and the thrill of creating things.

My happy place is my sewing room complete with my piano and sewing machine.
