The Institute of Registered Music Teachers of New Zealand

Welcome to LearnMusicNZ, the website of the New Zealand Institute of Registered Music Teachers (IRMTNZ). Whether you are looking for a music teacher, or want to become a registered music teacher, or are a music teacher wishing to connect with others, or simply find out what we do, this is the place to be.

Music is a fundamental part of most people’s lives. We enjoy listening to it. And anyone can learn to make music, which has its own special rewards. As music teachers, we want to encourage people to make music, and to do it well. Our registered music teachers are qualified personally and professionally.

We are a professional organisation which supports music teachers by providing regular professional development opportunities and upholding standards of excellence in the teaching of the art of music.

The IRMTNZ holds annual national conferences which provide outstanding professional advice, collegial support and inspiration. One of the highlights of the previous conference was the Judith Clark Memorial Address, presented by Emeritus Professor John Drummond.
To see details of the next conference, go to the Conference 2020 page.
