The Power and Magic of Music: Sistema Aotearoa

Something a little different today – a photo essay from the end of year concert by Sistema Aotearoa students. Since 2011 Dr. Joe Harrop and his committed team have been changing the lives of underprivileged Otara school children by teaching them to play an instrument. Music has enriched these children’s lives and resulted in positive social, educational and developmental outcomes. Not only that, it was pure pleasure to watch and a fantastic afternoon. Inspired! Thanks to Andrea Duncan from the Michael Hill International Violin Competition for inviting me.
