Southland

Welcome to MENZA Southland

http://www.facebook.com/pg/SouthlandMusicEducation

A lot of the music education activity in Southland is based around Outreach Singing and the Music Engagement Principle which focuses on an altruistic model of music making. Many primary schools and secondary schools in Invercargill are actively involved in this programme.

You can also follow activities in the the community via the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Outreachsinging

The SIT Kids Concerts series are performed each year in May for ECE and Primary school students. These are free and have been running since 2003.

We also host presenters and have workshops at times during the year. Susan West, from Canberra runs workshops such as Learn to Play the Piano in three hours.

If you would like to learn more about any of these things, please contact Sally via email.
