About Kings College

Located within the historic precinct of King’s College, Auckland, New Zealand, with its established reputation for educational excellence, King’s College Conservatorium of Music offers comprehensive programmes of study in the European tradition of music education.

Founded on the ethos that ‘music is a practical art’ that is handed down from one generation of artist-musicians to the next, each student learns through meaningful musical experiences that aim at performance excellence and the holistic development of each student’s individual musical identity.

The best of the European tradition of ‘learning by playing’ is seamlessly blended with a diverse set of interactive forums with staff, visiting artists, pedagogues and industry experts to prepare our students for the requirements of contemporary international music careers.
