Martha Leah Nangalama: I believe in music for kids. Music develops the left side of the brain (Mathematics and Sciences). Love and reading develops the right side of the brain (humanities). If we give our kids music from a young age, they will excel in life. A kid who wins Math competitions and yet writes and has Emotional Intelligence (the ability to be empathetic to people) does not come by mistake. Mozart composed his first song at age 6. ..just some tidbits. Our province New Brunswick hired a guy from Venezuela to teach music. Daily, buses pick up kids and take them to music halls. All the instruments are supplied. It helps teens to stay focused.
Sistema NB has verified the possibility oftransformative social change through music and the orchestra. We have demonstrated that great art is for everyone and that it has the power to improve the lives of children and their families and enhance our society. We have shown that for children, an orchestra means joy, motivation, discipline, teamwork - that it builds confidence and self-esteem and that it is incredibly fun.
Who wouldn’t want that for even more
