We have an instrument for everyone.
Classes are designed to give primary and intermediate aged students the opportunity to learn a musical instrument at affordable rates.
“Pre-Instrumental” classes are aimed at children aged five to six years and are an introduction to the world of music.
We encourage older students to consider recorder, ukulele or keyboard classes as a first instrument to prepare them for progress onto a more demanding instrument or if they are unsure which instrument they wish to play.

Papakura Music School has four ensembles; Junior Band, Concert Band, String Orchestra and Guitar Orchestra. Fees are free of charge for students enrolled in any one or more of these classes, provided they have already enrolled in an instrument tuition class that feeds into the group.

Concert Band (For second year and above students of Clarinet, Flute, Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn)

All advanced students are expected to participate in at least one of these groups.
