The New Zealand School of Music (NZSM), located in Wellington, New Zealand, is a joint venture between Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University. Its main function is to provide a tertiary teaching faculty with programmes in Classical Performance, Jazz Performance, Music Studies, Composition and Sonic Arts. NZSM also provides the only postgraduate degree course in Music Therapy available in New Zealand/Aotearoa
As well as the full tertiary programme and full range of degrees, students at a pre-tertiary level can also gain the benefit of the expert tuition and resources brought together by NZSM. The NZSM Young Musician's Programme provides tuition and ensemble performance opportunities for school-aged students and the NZSM Foundation Course in Jazz is a pre-tertiary programme for school-leavers who wish to pursue Jazz studies but who are not yet ready for University.
