Kia ora tātou

We’re halfway through NZ Music Month but it’s not too late to get involved. Have a read of all of the great ways that the NZ Music Commission has on offer. Perhaps you and your colleagues could have a go at the daily Heardle? (Guess the track with only short parts played). 


Three administration points to help the smooth running of Musicnet. 

  1. If you post a message and get a rejection email, please read the content of the email as it contains the reason why it’s been rejected. 

  2. If you post a message and you don’t see it come through like other Musicnet emails do into your inbox, please check the archive first. Some members of the list don’t see their own messages. If you can’t see it there, then please email me directly and I’ll follow it up. 

  3. Please consider that Musicnet is an email list and so once an email has been sent, it can’t be ‘unsent’ to the 1600 members. Messages can be removed from the archives.
