What awesome things do your kids do to help others?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Meet Eddie Writes. He's 7, and won a Wellingtonian of the Year award for philanthropy. He spends his spare time tie-dying t-shirts and ironing patches on bags to sell online - raising $10,000 for Wellington Regional Hospital. We bet there's lots of Eddies out there. Tell us about your kids' kind deeds in the comments.

Suzuki Guitar Lessons

Royden from Te Aro

I am a graduate of Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music, having completed my Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) in Classical Guitar. I grew up surrounded by music and I am passionate about sharing my love for guitar. My lessons cater to each child and focus on encouragement, enjoyment and ensuring progress at a pace which is suited to each student’s development.

I am a registered guitar teacher through the New Zealand Suzuki Institute and I am determined to bring Suzuki Method guitar back to Wellington and for it to flourish in the community once more.

“Character first, Ability second” – Shinichi Suzuki

Royden’s Suzuki Guitar Studio follows the pedagogy of Dr Shinichi Suzuki, providing a nurturing environment that develops the whole child, through music. Suzuki discovered that all Japanese children are able to speak Japanese with relative ease. By creating a respectful and nurturing environment, any range of ability, discipline, and beauty within every child, can be cultivated to ultimately improve the human condition, whether it be language acquisition or learning to play an instrument.

“Where love is deep, much can be accomplished” – Shinichi Suzuki

What's your preferred peanut butter?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Premium and alternative nut butters - like Wellington's Fix and Fogg - have some of the highest sales growth at supermarkets nationwide. Have you made the switch to more artisan brands, or would you rather stay with the tried and true?
