Kia ora tātou


These last two weeks I’ve been hearing about great new ideas about what teachers are planning for 2022. This includes ways of them finding out about new music and it’s made. Personally, I sometimes find myself listening to the music I already know, or similar. How do you find new music? 


This week I’d like to highlight a new addition to the TKI online resources which I’ve already shared here before. Whilst the overall review and renewal of TKI resource bank is underway, one resource “Counting the Beat: Analyzing Aotearoa Pop Songs, for Music Studies Level 2” has been added. Have a look at the other resources there whilst you’re at it. 


The Youthtown Songwriting Competition is now open. The prize, for 65 year 9-11 students is to have their song recorded in a studio, mastered and distributed. Have a read and why not try something different this year?
