“I have 15 years experience of running Step Up Music Theatre School, a part time stage school
for children from 4-18 years of age. Through Step Up I have seen first hand how music can
have a positive effect on a child’s well being and development. RIMU represents my dream to
marry traditional academic learning with a broad music based curriculum” Nathalie

The Rimu tree (Dacrydium cupressinum) is a large evergreen coniferous tree that grows throughout New Zealand. To us, the tree
symbolises the growth and learning that we hope all students at the RIMU school will experience.

“Nathalie’s vision embraces both the importance of music for music’s sake, an enrichment of
the soul perhaps, but also reinforces years of research demonstrating that the study of music
supports and positively helps the learning of literacy and numeracy. It also encourages good
behaviour and social responsibility, respect for others and, in a physical sense, coordination
and motor control.” Stephen Dagg, Director of the Centre for Young Musicians in London
