CRESCENDO Trust of Aotearoa

Crescendo is a visionary, unique and professional social enterprise that grows young people between the ages of 12-24 across various satellite hubs across Auckland. They provide services such as sound production, band and music groups and other creative areas. As a social enterprise, Crescendo works to provide opportunities for young people in Aotearoa through a range of commercial services. They generate income through gigs, event management, video and sound production, and integrate this into their programmes. Not only does this provide Crescendo with revenue, but also real-life work experience and income opportunities for their rangatahi. 

 

-EMPOWERING RANGATAHI TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS-

To Join Crescendo:
  • Crescendo's programme is called the "Link Up." The LinkUp allows you to pick the modules that will benefit you in your journey to being a more self sustained artist. The music industry has multiple pathways. Crescendo recognise that there are different creative areas people want to explore and hence, compiled different pathways into specific units and broken down each unit into modules. Their units cover beat making, production, song writing, live performance, radio broadcasting, how to promote yourself and more!

  • Each module in the LinkUp is taught weekly. The weekly group sessions are run two times a day (11am-3pm with time for lunch and 4pm-6:30pm), Monday-Friday. Crescendo recommend each young person book for 1 of these sessions only 1 day/week.

  • Advanced students have the option to book in for additional solo sessions any available time 11am-7pm Mon-Fri, where they are making all the music and pushing all the buttons (with a mentor floating around for help as requested).

  • Crescendo also offer 2 hour 1:1 mentoring sessions for those looking for intensive sound recording and radio teaching and or want a way to ease into group work.

  • Each week rangatahi will progress through learning modules, until they complete and receive their certificate. The learning modules are set up to run from 1-6 weeks in length and are designed so that you do not need to take the sessions consecutively, allowing for the rangatahi to book in their learning to suit their schedule.
