Apply now for 2020

Our Artist Development programme runs annually from February - December.

Each year we handpick a small group of artists, for intensive musical development. We see this as a grassroots year of hard work and preparation; a time for artists to shape their craft and write prolifically before going into the music industry.

Artists on the programme receive:

  • Weekly studio time

  • Vocal lessons

  • Instrument tutoring

  • ProTools, Ableton and Logic workshops

  • Regular songwriting feedback & mentoring

  • Co-writing opportunities

  • Character and mindset development

  • Opportunities for spiritual development

  • Performance coaching

At the end of the year, artists develop a portfolio that showcases the best of their work - which includes professionally produced recordings, an artist story, live videos, and branding material.

Please note: This programme is only available to New Zealand residents 18-25 years of age. This is a part-time, partially subsidised programme based in Auckland, and artists are expected to support themselves financially during the year.

Applications close August 31. Auditions will be held in October.
