Parachute Music


Each year we hold auditions to to find six emerging artists who are serious about making music their career. We help them get a holistic start to their journey and it’s a privilege to walk alongside them.

Our year-long Artist Development programme is tailored-made for each artist, with the expectation that the artist is able to commit 20 hours a week towards their development. We offer:

  • Individual tutoring

  • Cowrites and sessions with industry professionals

  • Recording

  • Protools, Ableton and Logic workshops

  • Vocational theology

  • Music industry overview

  • Full use of a project recording studio

  • Styling, branding and marketing

  • Industry event attendance

  • Performance and song-sharing workshops

Please note: This programme is only available to New Zealand residents 18-25 years of age.



Meet the musicians on our 2019 Artist Development programme. They're currently busy writing a song a week and hitting the studio. We're calling this their year of incubation; a year for them to write intensively and grow, developing their craft under the radar.
