Ten years of New Zealand’s best music teaching

“In art, the best is the standard. When you hear a new violinist, you do not compare him to the kid next door; you compare him to Sternand Heifetz.” - Ursula K Le Guin

Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, ten years of ongoing success, the Akaroa Music Festival is New Zealand’s premiere residential music school. Every January, an array of distinguished international classical musicians provide ten days of lessons, masterclasses, and concerts against the breathtaking backdrop of one of the world’s most beautiful seaside towns. The festival accepts advanced and enthusiastic young musicians from all over New Zealand and abroad. Classes are open to school students, university students, and adults.

Selena Orwin has studied with many of the world's leading bassoonists and conductors. She is Principal Bassoonist in the Christchurch Symphony and has played with all the major New Zealand orchestras. She plays in numerous chamber ensembles and teaches at the University of Canterbury and at the Pettman National Junior Academy of Music. She gained two diplomas at the Royal Academy of Music in London, in addition to her Master's degree with Distinction in performance at Canterbury University. She has also been awarded Royal Academy's Honorary Diploma, reserved for past students who have achieved distinction in the profession.

Ten years old and going from strength to strength, the Akaroa Music Festival is building the future of New Zealand music.
