A Music School across the Road?
In 1999, a group of concerned musicians came together to uplift a community by sharing their skills with some children on the property of a Lutheran church. The city was Joburg, the community was Hillbrow and surrounding suburbs, and the music school was the one right across the road from where we now live! Today we met most of the music teachers, perused their daily music teaching schedule, enrolled two of our kids to start lessons there next term, and attended a concert this evening in which their students performed together with about 5 other schools at a nearby, affluent Joburg school…inspirational they were!
(We also decided I would volunteer as a music teacher at the Hillbrow Music school every week on a Wednesday afternoon starting on 20th June…)
