E tipu, e rea - Grow tender young shoot
A-Tunes is a choir group made up of our senior students at Addington. This includes students in years four, five and six. A-Tunes is under the expert tutelage of Ally Palmer. Ally has been teaching music for over nine years and performs in local Christchurch music events on a regular basis.
Our goals are to:
· Provide enjoyment and foster a life-long love of singing.
· Provide students with quality music instructions and performance opportunities.
· Provide an experience where students become more confident in their teamwork as well as their individual esteem.
Rehearsals are held in the hall on Fridays at 10.10am-11am.
Our music selection includes a variety of songs from different genres and time periods. Students are included in the song decision-making process. While learning each of the song’s students are able to follow the lyrics on the projector. They are also given a hardcopy of the song selections to take home and practice.
Concerts and Performances:
There is a number of opportunities throughout the year for A-Tunes to share their musical talents to their school and home whanau. These performances range from assemblies, lunchtime performances and evening concerts.
