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.

Martin Rummel is not only the last pupil of the legendary William Pleeth but with nearly 50 CD albums on labels such as Naxos and Capriccio one of the most distinguished cellists of his generation. He continually gains worldwide praise for his recordings of previously undiscovered music and is a regular guest with orchestras or at festivals and venues throughout Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, collaborating with eminent musicians of all generations. He is the editor of an acclaimed series of all major cello etudes for Bärenreiter and is Head of School at the University of Auckland’s School of Music.

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