Kia ora and welcome to The Band School in sunny Gisborne. We specialise in professional 1 to 1 lessons, school music, holiday programmes and band tuition. Professional, holistic, skill based and great fun while you learn. We are student focused, have strong curriculum ties within our classes and embrace modern technology to keep you in the loop with lessons. Students perform regular concerts to gain musicianship skills and these are a highlight of the calendar for family, performers and the wider community. Our Studio is fully equipped with quality instruments, free WiFi and even a ping pong table all encouraging students and families to soak up the music environment while you wait. 

Join us for lessons, a holiday programme or join a band.
We're also teaching at rural schools if you'd like us to make a visit out in the wop wops! 


This school will help in so many ways; as well as musical skills it will give people an insight into how the music world works
