Hi all!

Just signed up to the forum after doing a little research on coming to NZ!

I'm Mike, a 26 y.o. musician from Edinburgh, Scotland. My girlfriend and I are looking to come accross in 1012 for a year, and to see what happens after that. She's been over before but it'll be my first time and I can't wait!

Just getting my head round the Working Holiday visa at the moment, and trying to find out whether I can be self employed on a visa like that, but I'll post that question in another thread. I teach drums and piano and I also perform with function/covers bands over here, and I'd love to do the same thing in NZ. If someone could let me know what the music scenes are like over there and where they are that would be great. Also, is there generally speaking a demand for private music tuition in NZ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The new boy,
