New Zealand

2023 Date to be determined!
Waipu, New Zealand

Join us in beautiful & historic Waipu, New Zealand for five days of musical discovery and fun. Our venue for classes, CraigDhu, is located a few miles from Waipu on a majestic headland overlooking Bream Bay; huge thanks to the Craig Family.

We’ll be coordinating rides from the Auckland Airport, and there are lots of lodging optons in the village of Waipu. Students attend classes daily (Friday-Tuesday.) and are encouraged to spend time with each teacher during the course of the week with the aim of discovering connections between oral traditions, expanding musical vocabulary, learning new techniques, broadening their sense of the instrument, and enabling them to find their own musical voice. The evenings will be filled with social gatherings that include excellent meals, concerts, informal gatherings and sessions of music-making with students and teachers alike. The week in Waipu will emphasize the fiddle, flutes, whistles & pipes. The course will suit those with basic playing experience, will cater to a wide range of ability and is designed to challenge as well as inspire.
