IGNITE is made possible in 2018 with generous support from our sponsors

Music and Audio Institute of NZ (MAINZ)


MAINZ programmes are designed for music lovers with the industry in mind.  On offer are introductory short courses, through to certificate, diploma and degree level qualifications. Subjects covered include music performance, DJ and electronic music production, live sound, audio engineering and event management.


This partnership with MAINZ provides a career pathway for our graduates with one graduate being awarded the MAINZ Scholarship to study Dip. Music and Event Management in 2019. Founder and Programme Manager Savina Kim studied at MAINZ to get to where she is in the industry today, so we are very grateful for this continued support for IGNITE.
