The New Zealand Singing School: Te Wānanga Toi Waiata is an 11-day intensive and life-changing vocal experience for those looking to accelerate their skills and confidence in singing and performance. Designed for students in both classical music and musical theatre, the New Zealand Singing School has the only programme that uses “crossover” techniques to create versatile performers while maintaining the discipline of both.

The next Singing School will be held from 4th to 14th January 2019.


Applications for the 2019 Singing School have now closed. Late applications may be accepted on a case by case basis. Please email to enquire. A $250 late fee will apply.  Alternatively, you can enrol as an Observer – this is the next best thing to being a student of the School.  Read further details here.

The ultimate test for the New Zealand Singing School students is in performance.  Over the 11 days of the School, there are at least five opportunities for the public to watch these students perform. Performances take place at venues around Hawkes Bay, including the MTG Century Theatre, Napier Municipal Theatre, and Tabard Theatre Napier.
