Arohanui Strings

The Wright Family Foundation is pleased to support Arohanui Strings-Sistema Hutt Valley achieve its mission of giving children access to a quality music programme free of charge in their own neighbourhood. This early-intervention free and all-inclusive music education and ensemble programme aspires to bring about positive change in the lives of vulnerable children and youth.

Learning to play an instrument helps students build confidence and develop many transferrable skills including concentration, personal discipline, responsibility, memory, listening and leading/following, all of which help to ensure a secure path into adult life.
Founded in 2010, the programme teaches violin, viola, cello, bass, singing and music literacy in the Sistema style, providing quality self-esteem building performance experiences.
