|At the establishment of the New Zealand School of Music, the two shareholding universities set out our mission, to be New Zealand’s pre-eminent provider of university-level music education, research, composition and performance. To achieve this mission, NZSM has identified three goals:|
To attract the elite of students in New Zealand and excellent students from overseas.
To achieve international recognition for the quality of its teaching, research composition and performance.
To contribute significantly to the nation’s cultural life, particularly in Wellington, through providing widely inclusive music education and a strong community outreach programme, and by working co-operatively with other arts organisations.
