A Message from Mila Clark

2018 Kaipara College Music Captain 

Mila Clark 2

Here at the Kaipara Colllege Music department, we are known for being accepting and diverse! 

Personally, I've found that the Performing Arts department here at Kaipara College, especially music, treats you as more of an individual than just another student. Relationships between teachers and students in this department are honest and understanding - giving you the best chance to improve and grow as a musician and a student.

Throughout a year in music at Kaipara College, students have the opportunity to get invloved in SmokeFree RockQuest, the school production, Play It Strange competitions, local concerts and performances and the Band Factory. Band Factory is a chance for all our music students, of any age group, to get together, to write and play music, after school hours. This allows students a chance to work on upcoming performances or just to grow and learn new things from others around you.

Anyone who has been through the music department here at Kaipara College knows how much of a family it is, and that anyone is welcome - whether you've been playing music all your life, or have never played before and are just passionate about music!
