THE MUSIK LINK
is a New Zealand based resource
for people around the world
to share, learn, and connect through music.
We exist to share engaging content for people to exchange ideas in discussion for further reflection and understanding, to learn through genuine and thoughtful interactions, to cultivate open, supportive, enriching, and fulfilling experiences in music and life, and to connect with communities in Aotearoa and worldwide.
We envision a world where our commitment to connecting through music fosters profound life lessons that inspire people to pursue their dreams.
The Let’s Link Project welcomes great bassoon guests for an interview and live discussion to share their stories, lessons learned, and life realizations through music.
Infinite Sounds Music is an outreach initiative to share, learn, and connect through music and bassoon education in Aotearoa and worldwide.
The Aotearoa Network introduces experts from diverse fields to dive deep into mental, emotional, and physical health conversations tailored for musicians.
The Pure Heart Pantry shares whole plant food recipes and lifestyle ideas to upgrade your environment from the inside out and the outside in.
Our organization is funded entirely through contributions made by our supporters. Please consider becoming a sustaining member, community partner, fellowship sponsor, and/or private donor.
