LESSONS & ENSEMBLES
Our dream is that every child is given the opportunity to try their hand at music. We provide a choice of 26 instruments for the pupils to choose from and these instruments are taught by professional Cape Town teachers. Pupils begin on recorder or violin and progress on an annual basis through a choice of different instruments. For those who do not continue, at the very least they have experienced the joy of music, which they otherwise would never have been able to do. All pupils are required to play in one or more of the following: Orchestras, Choirs or Jazz Bands. A shared musical experience cuts across language barriers, cultural differences, and socio-economic differences to create a community. Ensembles become a safe shared place for children emotionally and helps them develop as positive, healthy young adults. Performing in ensembles brings young people together which encourages teamwork and mutual support all the while creating unforgettable memories.
