The sum of $5000 was given to the Lakes Community Music
School by the Peter Wilding Trust, and $2000 by the Central
Lakes Arts Support Scheme, administered by the Queenstown Lakes
The school has been co-founded and operated by Queenstown
music teachers Emma Wilson (pictured left) and Alison Price.
Mrs Wilson thanked the organisations for their support and
said the grants made classes viable for at least two terms.
They will tutor a variety of instruments to years 5 to 8
children, but would consider younger pupils and adults and
were keen to recruit more
The first workshop and ''meet the teachers'' session will be
held in the music room of Wakatipu High School on February 1.
