Join the CSM Singers in 2023!

Singing has been shown to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing! At CSM we offer the opportunity for children aged 6 – 12 years to join us on a Saturday morning to sing. Using canons and rounds children will learn to sing in harmony before moving onto part singing in a wide range of styles. CSM Singers will develop their singing, musical and performance skills and have the opportunity to participate in CSM and community events.

“A great Christchurch institution. Well organised and a wonderful place to learn to play an instrument at any age. I wouldn’t be as passionate about music without the outstanding support, teaching and joy that CSM provides!

About The Christchurch School of Music

Tens of thousands of Christchurch children and adults have learned to love and appreciate music at CSM. CSM is a place where the whole family can learn music in the same place at the same time! We also offer a wide range of orchestras, ensembles and performing groups for all ages and abilities.

CSM is a not-for-profit organisation with a strong focus on community. On a Saturday morning the whole family can find something musical to match their interests and abilities. Preschool children can begin their musical journey by joining in our experiential “Take Off with Music” while older children and adults may opt for group or individual lessons on a specific instrument (including voice). Those who already play are welcome to join in one of our fabulous ensembles or choirs. If Saturdays aren’t an option for you or your family, CSM also offers a range of weekday opportunities for learning and playing music.

The variety at CSM is not limited to the selection of instruments and teachers, but includes a wide range of musical styles. For those with an interest in classical music our graded orchestras are the perfect choice. The family oriented concert band plays a vast selection including classical, show tunes, folk music and popular songs that everyone will recognise. 

Filling out this form does not immediately lock your child in to CSM Singers – we will contact you to discuss your needs and find the best fit for your child. Want to chat with us before filling out the form?
