Sizanani Children’s Home
In August 2016, three Music Man Project tutors visited Sizanani Children’s Home for a 10-day teaching and research trip. They delivered 25 teaching sessions to childrens’ homes, day centres and orphanages from local townships. Their progress was presented in a public concert, which included the premiere of a new composition called “The Sizanani Suite”. The Music Man Project donated three suitcases full of instruments and trained teachers and volunteers so that they could continue with the educational programme and musical repertoire beyond the visit, and establish a Music Man Project outpost in South Africa.
In 2017, tutors returned to South Africa to continue working with Sizanani Children’s Home and The Music Man Project South Africa.
