Some of Wellington's top musicians spent a day mentoring the next generation of musicians and song-writers.

Last week about 80 year-10 pupils from schools around the region took part in workshops run by Ria Hall, Rio Hemopo and Riki Gooch, Lisa Tomlins and Tyna Keelan tat the New Zealand School of Music.

Hemopo and Gooch are member of Trinity Roots.

Hall has performed with Trinity Roots, Eru Dangerspiel and Hollie Smith, but achieved widespread exposure for her inspired performance in the Rugby World Cup opening ceremony last year.

Tomlins has also worked with Trinity Roots and Hollie Smith, as well with Shapeshifter and Fat Freddy's Drop.\

Meanwhile, Tyna Keelan has worked with Native Sons, Dubious Brothers and Chris Marco.
