About Me

Philippa Drake
Philippa loves to sing and has been a choral singer all her life.

She is a music educator (Orff practitioner) at Wairau Intermediate School in Auckland. Her belief that everyone can enjoy success in music has led her along the Orff path to music education and as well as her teaching degree she has a graduate diploma from Auckland University which was based around the Orff Levels training. She has recently completed her Orff Level IV workshops at Waikato University – which she describes as a fabulous journey.

Philippa is on the committee of the music education organization ONZA (Orff New Zealand Aotearoa) Check out the website for music workshops and professional development opportunities.

In her role at her school she leads many music groups including a choir, and she enjoys working with all of the students as they find fun and musical satisfaction in their lessons.
