Bringing the Music Home

Please take 6 minutes out of your day and watch our film…it displays tenacity, courage and determination whilst demonstrating the incredible power of music.

MUSICWORKS has been privileged to receive funds to not only rebrand our organisation, but to also make three short films on each of our programmes.
The first film made by Plexus Films, showcases our Music for Life (MFL) programme. Following one beneficiary’s journey during a rehearsal process culminating in a concert within the Heideveld community, the story of Music for Life is told by Marcelino Fielies. Marcelino has been part of our programmes for the past 7 years, and his story is one you will never forget!

Starting off as a beneficiary of our music therapy programme, Marcelino later joined our after school music programme, learn to play indigenous African marimbas. Displaying exceptional talent, Marcelino quickly progressed and although faced with his own internal struggles and cross roads, Marcelino made positive choices and is now a Community Music Facilitator intern with MusicWorks, training other young people from within his community to play marimbas and runs gumboot dance workshops in Lavender Hill and Heideveld. In a society where positive role models are in short supply, this young man leads from the front and represents a beacon of possibility!
