Kia ora tātou


Welcome to the end of what seems like a very long 11 week Term 1. I’m thankful for all of your contributions over the last 4 months. Musicnet members posting questions, answering queries and sharing resources is what makes this community so valuable. Some of you have colleagues around you, whilst others are sole-charge, or in isolated areas. 


As always, take a break these holidays. Have a cup of tea and do something for you!


The list will continue to run over the holidays.
