Create a Song Competition 2022

May 3, 2022, 2:30 p.m.

Te Kaharoa, a platform dedicated to providing creative opportunities for our rangatahi, have just dropped $6,000 worth of music development gear and prizes for their 'Create a Song' competition. This comes alongside an extension on the competitions deadline till the end of May, to give the youth a lengthier chance to enter. 

Trey Subritzky, Head of Te Kaharoa, is excited to see what this competition and the prizes can do for our rangatahi. Coming from a strong music and Muriwhenua background, the passion to see our youth succeed is unlike any other. 

“I hope to inspire our taitamariki, through this competition, to continue innovating and creating. I think it’s an awesome opportunity for them to put themselves out there and share their talents.” 

The music roots run deep in Muriwhenua, with so many diverse local acts; young and old, male and female; all contributing to the local music scene. Local musician/youth worker, Derek Ashley, recounts on the inequities faced by musicians in the early stages till now.

“Im pretty stoked with the whole concept of the 'Create a Song' competition from Te Kaharoa, its an opportunity I definitely would’ve jumped on as a rangatahi.

“It’s just awesome we’re able to provide a space for creatives, especially musicians or artists to express their thoughts, their knowledge, their wisdom.”
