Welcome To The North-West Musikon

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to imagination, and life to everything,” stated by Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher and teacher.

MUSIC is the one activity that could benefit every student in every school across the nation. Taking music lessons and playing an instrument could improve your grades, help you to become more disciplined and confident, and it even allow students to form lasting friendships.

Certain areas of musical training are tied to specific areas of academics. Rhythm training emphasizes proportions, patterns,fractions and ratios, which are expressed as mathematical relations and therefor music learners have a better understanding of mathematical concepts.

The investment in music education leads to the enhancement of a learner’s verbal and reading skills. Furthermore; learners gain a greater understanding of their school subject matter and achieve academically. Music encourages learners to persevere through difficulties and builds the learner’s self-esteem.  Group participation in music activities can assist in the development of leadership skills and has numerous social benefits for children.

Can you imagine life without music? No listening to music on the radio on a long drive. No music to dance to. There would not be any soundtracks in movies and concerts and musicals would be non-existent. Eventually, no one would even remember what music is. Music has bigger effect on people’s lives than they may think. Without music, life would never be the same.

Let’s keep music alive! Music education will not only allow learners to experience and enjoy what music has to offer, they will also reap the innumerable benefits that come with music.

Liewe Musikon,
Julle het al ʼn geruime tydjie gelede my en Henco se pad gekruis. Tussen die twee van ons het ons al tromboon-, klavier- en sangopleiding by julle gekry.
Elke liewe keer as ʼn mens by die voordeur instap, omvou ʼn welkome atmosfeer jou en elke vriendelike groet maak enigeen se hart warm klop – op tyd!
Dankie dat julle die doel voor oë hou, naamlik ʼn liefde vir musiek; dit is presies wat julle les na les bereik.
Julle passie vir musiek laat keer op keer my kind met blink oë daar uitstap!
Mineur en majeur groete,

Rentia Mynhardt
