It is a privilige for me to be a patron of this project. My association with Sr Berchmanns goes back to 2000 when I taught violin students at her music project at Morekolodi in Ga-Rankuwa situated north-west of Pretoria. She is a formidable person with a passion and drive for education and music.
We share the belief that music provides an ideal mode of support for children's education. It requires discipline and dedication through the requirement for daily practise, inspired by passion. These qualities can be transferred to any other area of education and we believe that if a child experiences the satisfaction of this process through his music making, he/she will be better able to apply it to their academic studies or even in sports. This music project can form the basis for supporting the young children in their path to becoming confident, positive and successful adults.
I urge anyone reading through this section of the website to support us with a donation, whether it be monetary or in the form of instruments and accessories such as strings(used strings too), shoulder rests, rosin for the bows, etc.
