We are very pleased to WELCOME you to North Canterbury Academy of Music based in the Rangiora Town Hall.
We hope that you will find our new website easy to navigate. The site introduces you to our experienced tutors and their instruments which we hope will encourage you to join one or more of our individual lessons or group music lessons in 2024. All students playing an orchestral instrument are encouraged to join our Orchestra and voice students our Choir.
The Academy was established in 1983 and we continue to offer our students the opportunity to nurture a love of music, from the youngest beginner to the more experienced players, that will last a lifetime.
NCAM is primarily an 'out-of-schools' programme offering lessons from 3:30-7:30 Monday - Thursday.
In 2022 we had some exciting opportunities for our students. The Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (CSO) worked with us in 2021 and in 2022 they worked with us as part of their Community Engagement project. Sessions were offered to students studying orchestral instruments and they throughly enjoyed the workshops.
In 2023 we celebrated our 40th Anniversary. Therefore, the CSO will be joined us in August for an Orchestral Weekend to celebrate the life of the Academy. This was a wonderful event, open to players of all ages and abilities that concluded in an amazing concert showcasing the hard work over the weekend!
We look forward to hearing from you!
North Canterbury Academy of Music was established in September 1983 by Julia Holcroft. There were originally 8 students studying violin and the Academy has grown over the years reaching 100+ students in 2021.
