A Musical Education Venue: Whittaker’s Musical Experience on Waiheke

The Museum is a wonderful, educational venue for all school classes – right through from primary to college and university. A visit here can encourage students to begin learning an instrument. During School Holidays free “Live Shows” are performed for all students.

Our live show of 90 minutes combines 30 years of teaching, broadcasting and recording experience; playing and giving a brief history and their use. You will be entertained with music all will enjoy from the youngest to the oldest, and afterwards you have an opportunity to play an instrument of your choice, or pedal a pianola. It’s fun as well as exciting, and we call it: Whittaker’s Musical Experience.

Waiheke Cinema

View their website for a schedule of films to be shown over the holiday period.
