NZ Modern School of Music

music-superstarsNew Zealand Modern School of Music

South Mākirikiri School has a partnership with the NZ Modern School of Music (NZ MSM) to provide music lessons to our students. NZ MSM teachers have been trained in music education to improve the student’s knowledge, experience, enjoyment, performance, and creation of music. NZ MSM has found that positive music experiences bring life-long pleasure to their learners, and course content encourages creativity and improvisation in practical work. They believe a comprehensive study of music theory benefits their students.

Congratulations to Sophie Simpson, Milton Auret and Oscar Auret. These students sat their practical exams on Sunday, 27 August 2023. Sophie passed with Honours, Milton and Oscar with Merit. A huge well done to these students.
