Learning and performing

The wind performance class is designed to support your instrumental studies as well as provide professional-level advice on everything from preparing for auditions, to details of instrumental maintenance, from career strategies in a competitive world to nuanced understanding of wind repertoire.

We also offer courses in chamber music and orchestral music, and plenty of opportunities to further your performance interests. You can audition for the UC’s Christchurch Youth Orchestra, join our Balinese gamelan, or participate in Contemporary Workshop for those pursuing contemporary forms of expression from jazz to rock, folk and experimental pop.

Our community of UC performance students comes together weekly for a combined performance workshop. This forum offers career advice, exploration of challenging new and experimental ensemble projects, guest artists’ presentations on their pathway in music and a platform for peer-to-peer playing.
