What People Say

Visit our Shop

Our online store has all the instruments, accessories and resources you'll need to start practising at home. We've selected only the products we trust and use to take the guesswork out of shopping for the right instrument.

The Goodtime Foundation is a registered charity that has been set up by Goodtime Music Academy, in order to provide free music tuition and mentoring to Kiwi kids who would otherwise be unable to access such opportunities.


By supporting The Goodtime Foundation, you can help put a brand new instrument in the hands of a deserving child. You can also know that not only will these young people be developing their music skills, but that every week someone they look up to will be passionately inspiring and investing in them to be all that they can be.
