Academy Band

Manukau Academy Concert Band is an initiative of the award-winning Manukau Concert Band.  Open to players of any ability although some experience is helpful.  It is an inclusive, and above all fun community group for learners at any stage of life whether they be very young adults, more mature people returning to music after a break, or those just wishing to have fun playing light music.

Rehearsals are on Thursdays, from 7-8pm, at Howick Presbyterian Church, 11 Vincent Street, Howick.  More advanced players may be invited to stay later for some extension and/or ensemble playing.

Please register your interest, or contact us with any questions, by emailing us at Be sure to let us know what instrument(s) you play, and how long you have been playing.
