Music, Tutors > Ronnie Eketone - Programme Director

Music has always been the soundtrack to Ronnie’s life growing up but it wasn’t until studying at EXCEL in 1996 as a drum major and consequently going on to be apart of the tour team in 1997, that a passion for playing musical instruments was sparked. 

Ronnie went on to become involved with the music team at Valley Road International Church where those skills continued to be developed, eventually including playing guitar before being given the opportunity to lead worship. 

In 2002, an opportunity presented itself to work at Tu Meke Productions in Scotland. This involved learning to create compositions using Logic Pro in a studio environment. These compositions would be used on different projects including work for AWM Missions, as well as others. Returning to NZ in 2003, Ronnie continued his involvement at VRIC, be-coming music director as well as part of the Church leadership team there. Ronnie was offered the music director position at EXCEL in 2007.  In 2018, Ronnie was offered the role as Programme Director which he still holds today.

Ronnie is very passionate about the performing arts and has a desire that students would take away that same ‘spark’ that he discovered through studying at EXCEL.
