Polish your skills under the close and expert attention of some of New Zealand's most acclaimed teachers and performers. You'll learn from practising professional artists who have had international solo and ensemble careers, including members of the Rodger Fox Band, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO), Te Kōkī Trio and the New Zealand String Quartet.
Make use of staff contacts in the music world—you might get the chance to audition for the NZSO or Orchestra Wellington, or to be involved with many other classical and jazz events for which Wellington is famous.
While your focus will be on perfecting your Performance skills, depending on your degree you may also do coursework and research. Victoria University of Wellington's master's students will complete a thesis made up of a significant performance or series of performances, and a written critical analysis of the works. If you're completing the Artist's Diploma you'll work towards giving solo public recitals with pre-concert talks. Doctoral students will undertake research alongside their performance studies.
