PERFORMING ARTS CLASSES
AT TE AO MĀRAMA SCHOOL
We offer a selection of classes during the day on Thursdays at Te Ao Marama School.
These lessons are for Te Ao Marama School students only
AND VOCAL LESSONS
Lessons are available in Keyboard, Piano, Ukulele, Drums, Junior Vocals (5-7) and Vocals (7+).
In each lesson, your child will learn how to read music and develop skills in their chosen instrument, with one-to-one instruction.
Music stimulates the brain in a way no other activity does. While playing an instrument, you are adding new neural connections, which primes your brain for other forms of communication. Music lessons will help to improve your child's memory, attention, speech, language and spatial skills.

There is no requirement for candidates to have passed a lower level grade before entering the exams. For exams above Grade 1, the tasks are the same, just requiring increasing levels of skill.
The graded acting and speaking exams encourage learners of all levels and abilities to demonstrate their skills in performing and speaking through engaging with as wide a variety of activities and texts and possible. Speech and Drama lessons help children develop self-confidence, self-discipline and creativity. They learn how to project their voice, enunciate and communicate clearly, and portray various characters. They gain presentation skills and learn the importance of movement and body language.
Exams for Speech and Drama will be taking place in October with the exact date to be confirmed. Lessons will be geared toward exam preparation in a fun and accessible way.
Keyboards are available for hire for use at home for $5 per week. A contract is required to be filled in.
Ukuleles are available for sale at $38 - $58 each.

We work towards the students putting on little performances throughout the year at school, and students are invited to perform at the Excite Academy recitals or concerts held throughout the year.
