NZ Sing In for KIDS

NZ Sing In for kids – Specific age group e.g. 9 – 12 years

2 hour workshop [50 mins – 20 mins (morning tea or afternoon tea) – 50 mins]


Singing is fun at all ages but what are some of the New Zealand songs for kids that make us unique, that affirm who we are and tell stories that we can relate to from our environment, from our cultures and/or from our own NZ composers and artists.


This workshop tunes up the children’s voices, helps them feel the excitement of making music together with body and vocal percussion. It uses New Zealand repertoire to learn about the social relevance of music as a means to express and capture our experiences and stories as an art form.
