Free as a Songbird

Free as a Songbird

“Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind and flight to the imagination”

– Plato –

End of the school year tour 2023/2024

We are thrilled to announce our project in the schoolyear 2023/2024 will be available through the whole Netherlands!

With Free as a Songbird children in Dutch newcomers schools receive music lessons from professional music teachers who are especially trained in working with refugee children. It gives refugee and newcomers children the opportunity to speak the Dutch language, while learning this through music.

The ability to communicate is the first step to freedom in society. Language therefore is a means, not an end. Communication has more forms than just language; expression of emotions is one of the ways.

Music is a universal language!
