Music Academy Concert – a fine performance

An unsung hero and one of amazing talent and international singing awards in her experience, is Anita Prime who led her music academy students in their annual Christmas Concert last Sunday afternoon in Whitianga Town Hall.

The essence of the concert was to sing, play, and shine. Sing like your favourite artist, play like your musical idols, and shine like the brightest musical star. Sing, play, and shine is exactly what the participants did. The stage was bedazzled with a backdrop of fairy lights. The young stars stepped forward with confidence; their voices and musical abilities were amazing. The performers had worked extremely hard to fine-tune their music.  For many, this is a big stepping stone and confidence builder for their future. It was so thrilling to see young musical talent emerging.

Anita Prime comes from a musical family; she was inspired by her poppa, Hoc Prime, who used to play in bands all over Coromandel. Anita has been playing a diverse range of musical instruments, like the piano, flute, drums, guitar, and bass, since she was little. For the Christmas concert, she even played her poppa’s saxophone, which she hasn’t touched for 15 years.

 Anita has a real affinity with kids; her kindness and encouraging words nurture the young people (and adults too) she tutors in music. Her adage is that kids can achieve anything they want to and she works to their strengths. In her classes, the students get to sing or play their favourite songs, and she offers cool techniques for fast learning. Results are achieved quickly because of solid how-tos and the incredible emotional support Anita offers. Working hard, learning and enhancing their natural musical talents becomes fun.

All the concert participants have the right to be proud of what was accomplished and the high standard of their performance. The participants were: Hannah Kim-Treang, Blake Hill, Chase and Thea Hayward, Flynt and Ava Hendrickson, Indi Hayward, Raewyn and Reiver Wallace, Jade Kekesi, Zac Pauling, Shyla Gill, Sasha Lim. Anahera Kingi, Gia Choi, Camilla Pointon, Marie Jack, Asta Mita, Ian Choi, Ivy Baylis, Tanya Hubbard, Bonnie Roberts, Isabella Comer, Roland Miller, Annabelle Kline, Sophia Adshead, Ruby, Mel and drummers Blake, Harry, Marc, Nico and Sophia

Anita’s passion is loving and nurturing kids. Prime Music Academy sponsors Na Ihowa Ahou, which means belonging to God, creation, and purpose. This is a free community life skills programme run on Friday at the town hall in Whitianga and Tuesday in Coromandel. The programme involves having fun, playing crazy games, and teaching the life skills that pre-teens need to survive in this world, like feeling that they belong, as well as addressing issues like self-worth, bullying, peer pressure, identity, and respecting parents.
