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.

John Robinson studied clarinet at Victoria University, Wellington and a number of scholarships and competition successes enabled him to continue his studies in London with John McCaw, at the time Principal Clarinet in the Philharmonia. After graduating from Goldsmiths College, John held the post of Sub-Principal Clarinet in the Orchestra of Opera North, Leeds, for twenty years. During that time John taught clarinet at Huddersfield University and was involved in numerous education projects through Opera North. John returned to New Zealand with his family in 2011 and is currently playing with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra and teaching the clarinet.

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