The Contemporary Band Programme offers the environment and time to create, develop and achieve excellence in performing contemporary music.
Young artists can collaboratively create original music. Students naturally explore sound and rhythm within the context of their social culture to create original songs. These can be used for NCEA assessment and, ultimately, generate personal revenue. Bands and individual artists perform their latest works at the end of each term.
One or more practices are scheduled every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday between 8am–9pm. Fridays are ‘Demo Recording Day’, when bands can record and start the pre-production process.
