Music is a fundamental form of expression. At Wairau we provide appropriate instruments that minimise technical obstacles, therefore allowing students to work individually and collaboratively to explore the potential of sounds to create, interpret, and represent musical ideas.

By making, sharing, and responding to music, students contribute to the cultural life of our school, their whānau, peer groups, and the community. While students are learning to communicate with increasing sophistication through music, they are furthering their own creative potential while laying a foundation for lifelong enjoyment of, and participation in music.
