WHERE & WHEN
Exam Stream offers a more intensive support for students who wish to work towards instrumental music exams for Grades or NCEA, or just prefer a private one-on-one learning environment. Tuitions are based on NZ Music Examinations Board (NZMEB) curriculum, but other syllabi may be catered for, subject to prior arrangement with the tutor.
