Accessible, inclusive, holistic music education programme for ALL
The Virtuoso Strings Charitable Trust was founded in 2013 to generate social benefit through an accessible, inclusive, and holistic music education programme for students who would not otherwise have an opportunity to participate.
We seek to create a thriving, creative and safe environment that nurtures the talent of all young students and helps them build an enduring sense of self-worth.
We are a registered and incorporated charity (CC50199) established in 2013. We provide free instruments, ongoing music tuition and an after-school programme to students at low decile schools in Porirua East. We have established a vibrant youth and community orchestra in Porirua. We perform at literally dozens of community events each year around Porirua and Wellington. We are 'inclusive' in every sense of the word. We are committed to creating an environment where all youth can feel supported and will thrive. We have an unorthodox, holistic, and fun-loving approach to education with proven results. Our students enjoy being part of the Virtuoso 'family', and over time their self-esteem, confidence and achievement soars.
