Our philosophy A strong belief in the power of music as a tool to understand and access the world. It is an integral part of our national and international culture , past and present, and builds an important link between us and the wider world. Music and history are inter-connected and provide another area of learning for the children. Appreciating the relevance of music to children’s lives can motivate children to enjoy learning and to develop the skills and attitudes needed to succeed across their curriculums in school as well. Music allows them a unique space to be creative, express themselves, and learn. JOINING the urban educated student and artist community with children-at risk creates a unique space of learning for them too.

WHAT OUR PROGRAM DOES Builds self-expression and self confidence through music. It offers a means of expression that speech often does not. Music forms part of an individual’s identity and can help foster a sense of achievement and self-worth, and the ability to work confidently and cooperatively with others. Shared performance builds teamwork, collaboration and participation skills . Children learn to cooperate with others to reach a common goal through playing, rehearsing and performing music. They develop an awareness of different musical parts and the roles and contributions of different members of a group. The interaction through music builds and allows the children to trust the volunteers and musicians they are working with, and to trust each other.
