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, and dog. My husband Dave and I have five children and twelve grandchildren.

I love teaching, choirs, singing, listening to and making music, 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 ‘Summerhouse’ where I have  with my piano and sewing machine.
