About Me

Makaira Waugh
Kia ora

I am a currently working as a kaiako toi, arts specialist at Te Ara Whanui Kura Kaupapa Maori in Lower Hutt, where I teach an Orf based music and movement programme. My aim is to make singing and making music as fun and empowering for students as it has been for me, and in particular to support students to embrace, manage and sustain their own creativity. Exploring songwriting, improvisation and making musical instruments are a part of this.

I look forward to making music with you.
