Music for the Growing Mind
Dec 2013 to Nov 2014
Music for the Growing Mind is a project inspired by El Sistema in Venezuela which believes that musical education is a powerful instrument in the development of children living in challenging socio- economic conditions. The Foundation sponsored weekly music classes.
Thirty children in Ap Lei Chau were offered the opportunity to learn classical string music instruments for free. As the children practised and performed together, they learned discipline, team work, self confidence and technical skills.
