Classroom Resources

The NZSO Teacher Resources are the perfect way to prepare your students for a visit to the orchestra. Explore the theme of the concert, see how the performance fits into the curriculum and learn about the music and composers.


Here you will find a classroom resource sheet for every instrument and section in the orchestra; where they come from, what they sound like and in some cases how to make your own version!
