Any New Zealand primary school student can audition to become a member of the Westburn Specialist Music Programme. Students wishing to join SMP are invited to audition during term 3 of the year before they wish to start. At the audition students are asked to play a piece of music with their instrument(s) (including voice), and respond to a few ear tests. A panel of 3-4 members of the SMP council consider each applicant and advise within 10 days the outcome of their audition.
Students are required to audition successfully once during their time at Westburn School. In the early years, if a student is not successful, it may be suggested they re-apply the following year. Application forms can be obtained from the Westburn School Office or online.Go To Application
