I smile when I hear a group of preschoolers giggling and can feel the excitement as I enter the classroom. The cause of the animated mood is a musical concert for young children that the learners attended the previous day. A demonstration and explanation of musical instruments preceded the concert and clearly had an impact on one little boy. “Come and have a look,” he beckoned me. We sat down next to a creative construction of colourful blocks in different sizes laid out in a neat row on the carpet. “Look at my marimba!” he smiled proudly. With enthusiasm, he picked up two thin twigs and started to play on his handmade musical instrument.
