Term 2 Newsletter

Hello everyone and I hope term two has been going well for you all.

Term dates:

A reminder that the week beginning Monday 6th June is a midterm break so there will be no lessons that entire week unless you hear from your tutor who may have organised a catchup lesson.

Monday 6th June is Queen’s birthday so all lessons will resume Monday 13th June.
(All missed lessons get made up during the year).

Lessons end Friday 8th July for term 2.


Masks for people over the age of 8 years old are still required to be worn in the Kapiti Performing Arts Centre in this Orange Traffic Light System – thank you.

We would like to thank you for being so vigilant by informing the tutors that your child won’t be attending their lessons for whatever reason. Much appreciated.

I have noticed the lovely amount of respect shown towards the Kapiti Performing Arts Centre so I would like to show my appreciation and acknowledge this. We are so fortunate to have our lessons there so thank you for consideration.

KMC Concerts

Some of our KMC students will be invited to join the Kapiti Youth Orchestra for a local concert on Sunday 25th September at the St Peter’s Hall in Paekakariki.
Your tutor will let you know if you will be involved in this concert.

A lot of the KMC students go on to join the KYO and the two organisations share a great musical friendship therefore we decided the two should join forces and show our budding musicians what their potential next step could be.

Saturday 19th November

This is our big Concert Day at the Kapiti Performing Arts Centre where all the students get to perform. Times to be confirmed but please mark the date on your calendars.

New tutor:

The KMC would like to introduce the multi-talented Andy Russell to the team. Andy is the new drum and percussion tutor, and we are very fortunate to have him on board. Welcome Andy.

Classes available.

There are spaces available for beginner cello, flute, Introduction to Music, recorders, saxophone, and clarinet. Please contact the manager at kapitmusiccentre.org.nz if you would like to know more.

Thank you and remember to encourage your children to keep practicing. Little and often is the best method but also to enjoy this gift of learning and playing music.

Warm regards

Amanda Kemp
