Lab Band

This workshop goes all year round with a twelve month commitment. You must be able to read notation and improvise up to a reasonably high level as well as pass a simple audition to join.

In this program you will be exposed to how things work in a fully professional environment.  You will also will be working along side some of the world's best musicians like Chris Cain, Bruce Forman, Larry Koonse, etc., and some of the best from New Zealand.

Many students who have completed this program have gone on to successful careers in the music business here in New Zealand and overseas.  You could easily do that to.

Places are strictly limited for this sought after learning experience which you won't get anywhere else in New zealand.  Use the contact page if you would like to audition.
