Rata School of Music
A Conservatoire for Everybody
In February 2016, we introduced an exciting new development for musicians in Wellington, a Saturday* music school with a difference.
Using the best musicians and teachers available, known professionals in their fields, this music school will run along the lines of a conservatoire but be open to everybody (from school age to those in retirement) who want the best teaching and courses.
We are offering:
- Jazz programmes
- Individual Lessons in our sound-proofed teaching rooms
- Vocal Arts programme (includes workshops, masterclasses and our Young Voices programme)
- WELLSO Wellington Late Starters Orchestra
Former principal lecturer at Massey University Leigh Jackson, who is also a nationally and internationally recognised Jazz guitarist, leads an exciting programme which includes an introduction to Jazz theory, improvisation for musicians up to an advanced level and training in combos (groups/bands).
Our state of the art recording studio can be made available to those who wish to explores this option.
All ensemble groups have the opportunity to perform in show-case gigs from time to time.
Why choose Rata School of Music?
- The best teachers and professional musicians available
- The best facilities
- The best management team
You may find Saturday music lessons cheaper elsewhere but for just a little more you are getting the very best teaching and facilities.
This initiative promises to be second to none.
