About Us

Since 1952, the NZ Modern School of Music has provided Kiwis from the age of 5 to 95 with a fun, modern approach to learning music.

We encourage creativity and improvisation in practical work, as well as emphasizing the importance of theory.

Your child can focus on having fun and expanding their instrument knowledge or get a bit more serious and work hard to improve their confidence and skill.

The NZ Modern School of Music was established in 1952 by the late Allan Gardiner of Blenheim. After many years of playing classical music and travelling around Australasia with his band, he developed a method of contemporary piano playing.

From small beginnings, a private music school was formed and today the New Zealand Modern School of Music operates from Northland to Invercargill. There are over 300 teachers teaching piano, keyboard, guitar, recorder and other instruments, in 25 districts throughout New Zealand.

Our success must be attributed to the hard work, commitment and dedication of our wonderful music teachers. They are passionate about music and love to share that with others.

Our trusted and experienced teachers:

  • sign up for at least two years (to ensure our students have the same teacher throughout)
  • has passed a Teachers Diploma Exam
  • has at least Grade Level 6
  • has a good sound knowledge of music
  • is experienced at working with children
  • operates from home in a safe learning environment
  • gets together with other teachers once a term for up-skilling

Our team teach more than music, though. They also teach life skills such as discipline/self-discipline, respect and integrity and help pupils to develop confidence in creativity and communication.

Our curriculum was created by music teachers for the benefit of learners at all stages

We teach Piano, Keyboard, Guitar, Singing, Violin, Drums, Cello and Flute. All our lessons are private, one-on-one to ensure your tutor’s complete and undivided attention is on you and on helping improve your knowledge.

Our courses are tailored to suit the individual of any age with the emphasis being on improvisation and creative work.

Lessons follow our innovative curriculum plan, designed by the NZ Modern School of Music for the best learning outcome possible. This curriculum is only available through the NZ Modern School of Music has been a huge success over the years. Our courses are tailored to your instrument and ability, and there is ample material in our large range of books to suit every learner. NZMSM Music books are only available to our teachers and pupils. You cannot buy NZMSM Music books in any stores in NZ.

Formal and creative certifications and exams

Throughout the year, the NZ Modern School of Music carries out certifications and exams for students with ambition and a desire to aim higher. There is a formal element and a creative element to examinations. Within lessons, your child will have the opportunity to write and practice their own piece of music in the style of their choosing. This piece is graded by our examiner, alongside all other formal grading requirements set by the curriculum.

NZ Modern School of Music also runs annual music school competitions open to all students. Annual competitions give pupils the experience to perform and have the opportunity to attain Gold, Silver, Bronze medals and trophies. Practical and Theory Exams are available but not compulsory.

Proud of our rich history of the piano and guitar lessons, and now with singing, violin, drum, and keyboard lessons added to our repertoire, NZ Modern School of Music offer a musical pathway for everyone.

“My two children have been learning the keyboard with New Zealand Modern School of Music for two years now and it’s been terrific to see them gain an understanding and enjoyment for music. It’s great the music programme is run through school and recognised at school events. The skills they’re learning will give them a life-long appreciation for music. ”

Happy Parent


“My son has been learning violin with New Zealand Modern School of Music for 2 years now. He always looks forward to lessons and has grown in leaps and bounds with his tutors wonderful guidance. She is a very softly spoken lady but who’s enthusiasm for music shines through in every lesson we attend.”
