Music lessons in New Zealand
A friend of my daughter's, and her family, are moving to New Zealand. Does anyone here have any idea how this family might go about finding private music instruction when they arrive there? They are clever people who can surely figure this out, but any sort of contacts or helpful information would be warmly appreciated. I realize New Zealand is not a small place (roughly the same land area as the State of Colorado) and I do not know exactly where this family is headed.
NZ has 2 big orchestras: APO and NZSO in Auckland and Wellington, respectively. So if your friend will be living in one of these 2 cities, there are plenty of great teachers.
Thanks to Daniel and Jeff for suggestions. I will contact Carlo. If it helps at all, the family is moving to Auckland.
It is lovely to be invited into a discussion. I am based in Christchurch, New Zealand’s 2nd largest city by population. It is an hour and half to fly to Auckland, so I cannot help too directly. That said...
It won't help them in Auckland but for Wellington, my daughter's cello teacher's brother, Doug Beilman, was second violinist with the New Zealand String Quartet for many years, and teaches privately. I believe the quartet is associated with the conservatory there, which would be another resource, in addition to the symphony.
