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.

Ramon Jaffe studied with Boris Pergamenschikov and David Geringas. He was also a chamber music partner of Sandor Vegh, Yefim Bronfman, and others. As a soloist and chamber musician he performed in all of Europe's important venues and festivals as well as with the orchestra such as the Bavaria Radio Orchestra, the RSO, and others.

He has founded the Ramon Jaffe Trio which is specialized on the connection of Spanish classical music with Flamenco dance. Ramon Jaffe is Professor for cello at the Carl Maria von Weber Hochschule in Dresden, Germany and artistic Director of the Hopfgarten Chamber Music Festival in Austria.

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