The WURM festival is intended for senior primary and intermediate students but older and younger students can also join in. This festival is in its fourth year so the momentum is mounting. We would love to welcome new schools to these and can assist in preparations so please be in touch.
WURM is a friendly music festival for ukulele, recorder and marimba players at senior primary and intermediate levels. Music is shared prior to the event for students and teachers to practise and prepare. There are 4-5 pieces to learn though there is no expectation of 100% readiness by anyone. On the day, we workshop together and in sections to present a final concert of instrumental and massed items. Supported by Shane McAlister of The Ukulele Institute and experienced local music teachers, this event runs like a dream and is a pleasure every year.
