Raroa Music Centre is a music initiative through the Ministry of Education aimed for students 5-12 years old and offers tuition in 10 different instruments from beginner to advanced level, and four general music classes - music basics, choir, orchestra, and ukulele group. 


Hire an Instrument

You need an instrument to practise on and to bring to class.

Keyboards are provided at the Centre for lessons, but you will need to get your own keyboard or piano to practise on at home.

For $150 per year you can hire

  • cello
  • flute
  • clarinet
  • saxophone

Families can hire only one instrument each year. Hire fees must be paid in full before the first day of classes. The parent committee may authorise a second hire per family if there are instruments available, but this is not guaranteed and will be considered on a case by case basis.

When you are registering don’t forget to hire an instrument if you need one. Hire instruments are given out on the first day of lessons. 

Please email our Instrument Hire Coordinator with any questions.
