Overseas Music Tours for Schools

Taking your school orchestra, band or choir on an overseas trip is a fantastic way to develop the musical talent of students, build stronger ensembles and to take your performance to the next level. Student Horizons has great relations with schools and organisations across the world and are well positioned to ensure that students are given the best possible opportunity to develop their musical skills. Through our contacts we can organise professional workshops, tutorials and rehearsals with expert clinicians. Competing on the international stage at world renowned festivals and competitions is an amazing experience for any budding musician. Alternatively, due to the links we have with overseas schools we can organise exchanges for students from different countries to collaborate in delivering joint performances.

Partnering with schools and travelling, using Homestay accommodation gives your students a real opportunity to experience life in a different country.

Our speciality is that we are able to tailor the tour to suit your needs.

Our Music Tours are designed to:
  • Broaden students' horizons
  • Provides opportunities for students to learn from the experiences of others around the world
  • Provide opportunities for meaningful service
  • Provide opportunities for adventure and challenge
  • Develop student skills so they can move on with confidence
  • Provide opportunities for personal and social development
  • Increase students understanding of different perspectives and different cultures
  • Promote appreciation of our heritage on a global level
  • Positively influence the next generation of Australians and New Zealanders by developing their awareness of the wider world and helping them define their role within it
Popular destinations for school music trips include Argentina, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and the USA. Student Horizons will work with you and support you throughout to create an inspiring and memorable experience.

"This was such a pain-free process. I was kept well-informed and my questions were answered very promptly. Took away a lot of stress.”

StMarysCollege “Student Horizons is a company that I have been advocating for since my introduction to them last October. Within one week of making my initial enquiry, the company director, Mr Jamie Wansey travelled from New Zealand to Brisbane to meet with me directly and discuss the option of touring with Student Horizons. His initial passion, commitment and interest in my suggested aims and objectives of such tours from St Mary’s College made it an easy decision. The continued support from Jamie and his staff was incredible, as was the organisation and liaison with Suzanne Whitlock. Further to their commitment, Richard (Programme Development Manager) managed the operation on the ground in New Zealand and had an uncanny ability to ‘pop up’ anywhere and everywhere and support our tour 24/7 – no small feat for a 7 foot Welsh man! Our final thank you must go to Kaitlin, this ‘gritty’ ever determined Florida native was the champion of our tour. Her blog post was outrageously kind! Her intimate involvement and interaction with our group was highlighted in her ability to reflect on each touring member. She sprinted the streets of Auckland, bowled her first strike in ten pin bowling, discovered the great game of Netball and climbed every mountain that we did – whilst at the same time, organising the transportation, coordinating the rooming arrangements, picking up lunches, double checking dietary requirements and getting in ‘some’ sleep. The Student Horizons team was remarkable in every way, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to any school or organisation.”

Safety is our number one priority
When students travel internationally, their adventurous spirit can sometimes lead them to risky situations. Without proper preventative measures in place, the results can be disastrous.

By having numerous risk prevention measures in place and extensive risk assessments completed on international ground handlers, we are happy to share the responsibility of keeping your students safe during their overseas school tour.
Bring your students on a school trip that exposes them to experiences which develop their skills and interests in their chosen subject.

Whether you’re looking to organise international sports tours, subject specific educational tours or student volunteer expeditions, we can create customised itineraries based on your requirements.
Helping you fundraise more effectively
Fundraising can be a long and arduous process if you’re limited to sausage sizzles and car washes.
