Our Current Campaigns

Why music?

Studies have repeatedly proven how music can impact a child’s life in a tremendous way. At its simplest level, it teaches the child discipline, focus and listening skills. These are all invaluable skills for an adult.

Music has been shown to improve their academic results. This is especially true of our children, who are all learning music in English. Through this and the understanding of rhythm, their English and maths improves.

On a sociological level, this kind of education provides them with adult supervision and care, keeps them out of trouble and provides them with a safe space to hang out.

Lastly, the children become part of something bigger than themselves. Some of those children will use music as a vehicle to form a career while others will become better and more successful adults.

Children can only benefit from this kind of study, becoming happier, healthier and more successful adults.

We see music as the tool to drive this kind of human development!
