Te Koki New Zealand School of Music at Victoria University of Wellington offers an outstanding range of possibilities for the study of music – for students just beginning their exploration of music as a field of study, for students at various levels of advanced study, and for professionals who are seeking opportunities to strengthen and expand their qualifications. NZSM represents the best of both worlds, supporting long traditions of musical expression in classical, jazz and music studies as well as possibilities for new avenues of enquiry in composition, sonic arts and music therapy.
NZSM is a fully-owned School of Victoria University of Wellington. From 2006 until 2014, NZSM was a joint venture of Massey and Victoria Universities, drawing upon the long history of music education provided by the Victoria University Music Department and Massey Conservatorium of Music.
NZSM is situated in Wellington, the arts capital of New Zealand, and we offer the highest standards of excellence in professional music fields (including classical performance, composition, jazz, music therapy, musicology, and ethnomusicology), and bring an international standard of music education to New Zealanders
Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music is led by Euan Murdoch who began as Director of NZSM in January 2015.
