Mission Statement

To encourage & support the teaching of Christian Music in New Zealand by creating a network of Music Teachers who use Christian music as part of their instrumental lessons and/or are involved in children's music ministries within their church.

Psalm 33:2-3
“Praise the Lord with the harp.  Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.  Sing to Him a new song.  Play skillfully with a shout of joy!”

Colossians 3:16 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."



1. To provide access to suitable resources for teaching Christian Music. Such as simplified versions of current worship songs for every different level & instrument.

2. To create a network of Christian Music Teachers across New Zealand to support, encourage & inspire each other.

3. To provide a means of communication between members (in the form of a fortnightly e-mail newsletter) in which they can share their own vision, teaching experiences or ask other members for advice.

4. To actively promote in churches the mentoring of Christian children & youth as our next generation of Worship Leaders, Christian artists, Christian composers, and Musical Evangelists.


Would you like to join CMTNZ?

If you are a Christian of any denomination who teaches music in New Zealand and have a heart for God to work through your teaching to further the purposes of His kingdom then we would love you to become a member of CMTNZ. There is no joining fee or annual subscription. Simply click the link below to send an e-mail with your contact details.

If you know other Christian Music Teachers please tell them about this website! We are planning an advertising campaign through music teaching publications and churches over the coming months, but word of mouth is often faster (and much less expensive!). If you have ideas on where to advertise or would like to see an advert run in your publication please contact us.

CMTNZ is a very new organisation and so we are looking for people who would be interested in being a regional coordinator. It will be up to each region and regional coordinator what events (if any) they want to plan. Most enquiries, communications, newsletters, etc will be handled nationwide through the website, but it might be nice for smaller groups in local areas to be able to meet up in person and also to assist members who don't have internet access.
