Kia ora tātou and happy Matariki,


After today, there are only two weeks left in the term. Where did the year go? For those with senior classes, it’s around this time that preparation for practice ‘mock’ exams moves up a gear. Perhaps it’s timely that www.thecontemporarymusiccourse.com has updated it’s website to be more mobile-friendly. The 200 lessons and videos are a great way for students to continue learning over the break. Another place to go for external examination resources is Learning Ideas. There you can find student workbooks and practice exams.
