Kia ora tātou
Summary to 6 May 2019
It’s NZ Music Month, and as usual, the NZ Music Commission has been busy. Their Daily Listening Calendar, has a great number of songs and resources for you to dip into for 10 mins each day. (It’s not too late to start!). It’s linked to the Prime TV Documentary, ‘Anthems, NZ’s Iconic Hits’ currently showing. Some are NCEA targeted too!.
General (for all Music Levels)
The full resources of this year’s Hook Line And Sing-A-Long winner, “Aotearoa, nō te katoa”, are out now. They include: backing tracks, full recording, lyric sheet and NZ Sign Language translation.
