Reece Kennedy, graduated from TPP s Carpentry
programme in 2003, has been working with John
Gri n Builders ever since. I found my time at
TPP really valuable. It was great to get the theory
component of my apprenticeship out of the way before
entering the workforce, says Reece.
Reece, who is now a Foreman, is currently passing
on his wealth of knowledge to new recruit and 2013
TPP graduate Kane Bentley. e two are currently
working together on revamping the Jade Complex
on the corner of Mackay and Guinness Streets in
Kane gained work experience with John Gri n
Builders while studying last year and was o ered a
job at the company a er completing his Certi cate.
e course was great. I especially enjoyed the work
placement as part of the programme -- it was great to
put the theory I had learnt into practice, says Kane.
John Gri n has employed several TPP graduates
over the years and said I have found them all to be
of a high standard. It is great having the Carpentry
programme on the Coast, it is the ideal stepping stone
for school leavers into a career in construction and
If you re a hands-on, practical learner, enjoy variety
and want to prepare yourself for an apprenticeship in

2013 graduate, Wade Turner, realised his true musical
potential while on the programme last year.
Wade Turner, who has been playing the guitar for
years, as well as many other instruments, has always
had an interest in music, but was keen to gain more
knowledge in music theory.
A er seeing an advert in the local newspaper, Wade,
a born and bred Coaster, decided to enrol in the FSM
programme at TPP s Greymouth campus.
e programme delivered much more than I
could have expected, says Wade. I would de nitely
recommend this programme to anyone interested in
music, and wanting to gain a quali cation.
e FSM programme explores di erent aspects of
the music industry and guest speakers, performers and
a number of eld trips give valuable insight into the
reality of a music career.
Wade especially enjoyed the performance
opportunities the programme o ered. I loved the
performance side of things -- our class was split into
three bands and we put on shows in Greymouth,
Hokitika and more.
As well as music theory and performance, aspects of
live sound and audio engineering are also covered in
the FSM programme. You learn a lot throughout the
year, from learning to play your chosen instrument to
setting up a pa system -- there are quite a few di erent
experiences on o er.
Wade, who graduated at the end of 2013, received
a Merit pass -- this meant he received automatic entry
into the Audio Engineering and Music Production
programme at TPP faculty MAINZ in Christchurch.
Wade has accepted his place on the programme and
is excited about this opportunity to explore the Audio
side of music further.
The next intake for the Certificate in
Foundation Sound and Music -- Greymouth Campus
is 10 February 2014.

Daniel Rogers AKA Charlie is a former student
of SIT who graduated from the Bachelor of Audio
Production. He is now walking the talk and has
toured overseas. More recently Charlie and a fellow
colleague have opened their own studio called Blue
Barn Studios and have gained interest from big name
New Zealand artists.
Charlie s degree has helped open doors, but it has
also taken hard work and a strong desire to get where
he is today. He commented that "anyone wanting to
get into audio production should de nitely give SIT
serious thought as the programme gives students a
solid understanding of what to expect in the real world".
The next intake begins in early February 2014 so enrol
now to secure your place and say yes to a smarter future!
