Colourful Notes Music Academy Struisbaai
‘My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul.‘ Psalm 108:1
The Colourful Notes Music Academy is a community initiative and began at the end of 2017 with the help of the community, who generously donated money and unwanted instruments. Our vision is to bring music and the arts to the children and give them a reason to dream BIG! We see a dedicated music school with many volunteers that teach the children to play a wide variety of instruments, as well as dancing and singing lessons. This school will be a landmark and an icon for future generations to come. Something that brings hope to every child and gives them a platform to excel and rise above the odds.
You can't overdose on music
Music gives more than JOY!
Learning music accelerates brain development in young children, particularly in the areas of the brain responsible for processing sound, language development, speech perception and reading skills. The impact of music on a child’s life is great and studies have shown that it accelerates brain development, but also plays a role on all aspects of their development, intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language. It helps the body and brain to work together better and improves memory. But most importantly it gives joy!
How can you help?
We still need a variety of musical instruments. We would also like to make instruments available to the community for the children to own, which will enable them to practise daily. We also need volunteers to invest an hour per week teaching various instruments. Cash donations are also welcome.
