Music Programme Referrals Auckland

Crescendo don’t just work with budding musicians wanting to make their mark. We also work with disadvantaged and struggling rangatahi. These include rangatahi that are NEET (Not In Education, Employment or Training) or have been through a challenging upbringing and need to process this through the healing power of music. 

Crescendo aims to provide creative learning experiences that enhance the wellbeing of students and ākonga and develop their knowledge and skills in communication, collaboration, and creative thinking and practice.  More about the Crescendo programmes is on the Ministry of Education website and our music programmes page
