Every year NZSO musicians work with local youth orchestras around the country coaching young musicians on their repertoire and technique.

The NZSO National Mentoring Programme is an exciting opportunity for young music students to pair up with NZSO musicians to receive mentoring as well as access to NZSO rehearsals and concerts throughout 2017. Applications are welcome from music students aged between 13 and 18.

  • Students must be Grade 5 or over on an orchestral instrument.
  • Applications will be assessed by a panel of NZSO section principals.
  • The mentoring sessions will take place in the main centres to which the NZSO tour.
  • Students from outside these centres are welcome to apply but are responsible for their own transport costs.
  • Please be aware that short listed candidates may be contacted to submit an audio recording.

 Applications close on 14 November 2016. To apply please complete the survey.
