Music Studio & Master Class
 This CD was recorded at Fernando Figueroa's studio with students from the Kapiti Music Centre, private lessons and Te Ra Waldorf School from the year 2016. Each track is special because of the students spanning different ages as well as some newly learning to play and others fine tuning their skills and learning to play improvised solos. Track number 7 uses many sounds recorded from a workshop using recycled materials to make instruments. The only “real” instrument is the guitar.

1. Old Mc Donald: (Recorder and singing) Manna Peregrine, Isaac Marchant, Victor Monnet-Bonnifait, Kailash Foley, Phoebe Corin (Guitar) Miyah Shelton

2. Permutation: (Saxophone) Joseph Brunoro Beilman

3. Three Little Birds: (Recorder and singing) Manna Peregrine, Isaac Marchant, Victor Monnet-Bonnifait, Kailash Foley, Phoebe Corin (Bongo drums) Loan Sven Wanning
