The Play.Music vision is that all children in the Wakatipu basin have access to quality and enriching music education throughout their primary schooling.
- Provides opportunities for children to be involved in creating music within the classroom.
- Creates a foundation for further music learning at later stages.
- Enables inclusion for all children.
- Gives classroom teachers skills and confidence to teach music using the Charanga Programme.
The aim of Play.Music is to use specialist music teachers to run mentoring programmes for teachers within schools. This will establish teams of teachers who are confident, competent and skilled in providing music education. Play.Music has been successfully trialled in 2020 at Queenstown Primary School (QPS).
