APOPS unites the APO with schools across Auckland, partnering with teachers to create outstanding year-long programmes to both extend and excite their students.
Every year the APO partners with up to 65 schools to support their music programme. Students of all ages and backgrounds receive additional music tuition from professional orchestra members, experience the APO live in concert and engage with other exciting music experiences.
There are three options to choose from:
APOPS schools are also entitled to bring a group of students to an APO Education Concert with bus transfers to and from the concert arranged by APO Connecting. In 2018, schools can select from Kiwi Kapers for primary and intermediate schools, Discovery Concert for secondary students or Unwrap Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony.
'Since the APOPS tutoring I have received many comments from those who participate, stating how beneficial it was to their playing and positive attitudes surrounding music.' - APOPS School 2015
'MAGS music students have enjoyed our partnership with APO this year. They have attended the concert, followed by the weekend workshop with your musicians and now, we've got this lovely [teaching] resource. I am looking forward to continuing this valuable partnership in 2017.' - Mount Albert Grammar School
