Teach & Learn Music in New Zealand

We are the established organisation in New Zealand Aotearoa of private music teachers. Created by the Music Teachers Act 1981, our organization requires personal and professional qualifications for registration. If you want to learn music, find a music teacher in our member list.

We produce a printed Journal Ritmico once a year, in October.
Ritmico celebrated its 100th issue in April 2015.
Our online newsletter Ritmico Online is issued electronically every 6 weeks or so.
Both are sent to all members and subscription holders, Ritmico by post, Ritmico Online by email.
