The New Zealand Singing School is highly appreciative of the support given to us by our Patrons, sponsors and funding agencies. Their assistance enables us to bring quality tutoring to our students. Some generous private donors also assist our young singers!
We are proud to have the support of our stellar Patrons who show a great interest in the school. We've been fortunate to have had some of them teach valued masterclasses.
