XyloFun

The XyloFun programme aims to extend the benefits of music education to the schools in South Africa that need it the most.

The XyloFun system enables students to start playing exciting, creative music from the very first lesson.

XyloFun training courses give teachers instruments, skills and confidence to teach the music curriculum effectively, regardless of previous experience.

Music is one of the difficult Subjects that teachers need to teach without or inadequate training.  The applied XyloFun techniques are very much effective and inspiring with one Xylophone played by 1 to 3  players at a go.  It is so interesting and fun.   The CAPS Theory of Music Requirements are easily and practically covered with the XyloFun Programme.  Teachers on the last day performed an Exhibition Concert in the presence of their principals, learners and other stakeholders.  It was so fantastic.

This is a relatively low-cost instrument and fulfils all requirements of the CAPS, which requires a melodic instrument on which a basic scale can be played.  The teachers have spoken about the vast improvement in their learners’ music skills since aquiring the instruments, often stating that the learners will stay for hours after schools to practise their playing.

I wish to express how positive the workshop was to our educators because it stimulated and ignited the arts and culture interest in them even though the workshop took place for a short period.  Thank you once more for the instruments donated to the schools.

We had an exciting, exuberant and highly effective workshop which helped me grow in music.

I wish Pedro would be with us every day because we need him most, especially for our innocent learners. Everything was easy to learn.

Teacher

This xylophone is very special and unique. The programme is very useful as it portrays our African culture. I will use this material every time.

Teacher

I will be able to teach learners how to play the xylophone and create music which will be loved by an audience.

Teacher

The instructor made sure that all of us even the slower ones can manipulate the instrument. 

Teacher

It was exciting, enjoyable, something that I can continue doing in future, teach learners and use it in my community for Heritage day. I overcame my difficulties.

Teacher

Everything in the workshop was so organized. The man is fun and very energetic.

Teacher

In this workshop we learnt to improvise by making our own instruments without using money.

Teacher

Use anything to make melodious music anytime anywhere with everything!
