Since 2001, the Musicians Mentoring in Schools Programme has connected New Zealand’s top musical artists with emerging young talent in schools from Kaitaia to Invercargill. More than 150 artists have shared their expertise in songwriting, instrumental and vocal technique, recording technology, and music industry insight – including Jon Toogood, Maisey Rika, Chris Mac of Six60 and Julia Deans. The Programme also supports teachers and students with NCEA Music Achievement Standards – allowing students to potentially earn four to six credits through their work with their Mentor. In addition the Programmes support the Ministry of Education’s Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success and Pasifika Education Plan strategies. The hugely successful Programme usually receives more than twice the amount of applications as available places – so although applications are accepted year-round, schools are encouraged to apply early.More information
