Following on from the great success of the Wellington Late Starters’ Orchestra, we are pleased and excited to be launching the Rata Studios Jazz Band in Term 3 2020!
Following the same principles, the Jazz Band will be non-auditioned and open to adult players of all levels. Music will be arranged and provided for near beginners and to more advanced levels. This would be open to rhythm section players too, so piano, guitar, bass and drums/percussion, as well as all the usual brass and woodwind, are welcome!
Started learning an instrument later in life or just coming back and feel like you are starting again? Here is an amazing new opportunity for you to hone your skills alongside others in the same boat.
Designed to be a fun, enjoyable experience tailored as much as possible to your level this programme is perfect for all those late teens to adults (any age) wanting to get out of their rooms and play music with others.
We are thrilled at the success of the family of teen actors we have created over the short history of RATA Studios. We have had our students cast in TV shows, films, and on the professional stage. Find out how to get involved in this course which is seen as a kick start to many young actors careers.
