Siphesande Makele is the first of the current Muzukidz generation to outgrow her 3/4 size violin. She has been working extremely hard, especially during lockdown when the children were required to practise independently under challenging circumstances. Siphesande flourished, asking her teachers for more WhatsApp lessons and materials to keep her busy, and working through the music on her own as well as through WhatsApp lessons. A “secret angel” has been following the progress of Siphesande and her Muzukidz friends, and decided to donate a full-sized violin in order to support Siphesande in her journey ahead. Inspired, proud and grateful, Siphesande and her family is enjoying the gift of music, more than ever. And her journey with the violin is becoming more exciting by the day!
