We offer Student (13 to 20 years) or Teaching membership options. Note that Student members can only assist Teaching members, and may not enter examination candidates under their own name.


NZAMD realizes that for teachers, their studio is their business and livelihood, and are therefore committed to providing material that will assist them in growing and strengthening their businesses.

Examination Syllabi
The examination syllabi is available in user friendly written notes and teaching DVDs.

Examination Sessions
These sessions are held throughout the country from May to December. In most areas we are able to offer teachers a choice between an early or later session. There are four sessions in Auckland and Wellington, and three sessions in Christchurch.

Area Organisers
Area organisers provide a local contact for personal backup and assistance.

These are held to assist with the further development of teaching skills, and to introduce new programmes.

Teaching Programme
A Teaching programme is available to inspire and upskill both the beginner and the experienced teacher.

Newsletters are published regularly providing teachers with updates, information and reminders.
