The Legacy of the Penny Whistle together with MIAGI – ‘Music is a great Investment’ (https://www.miagi.co.za/).
MIAGI generously makes one of South Africa’s most outstanding penny whistle virtuosos, Jack Lerole Jnr, available to the children in our music groups.
Jack is an accomplished composer, arranger and teacher. He teaches the girls and boys in our groups to play the penny whistle solo and in ensemble via regular online lessons with the assistance of Vuyokazi Siza, our local facilitator.
He guides their personal development with the help of the South African penny whistle music treasure, and also connects the children to their country’s history and culture.
From time-to-time, MIAGI sends Jack to us all the way from Johannesburg for special in- person lessons and workshops, and to perform at the local festivals.
The legacy of the penny whistle in South Africa, is a truly great and unique legacy. Jack Lerole Jnr is the son of legendary South African penny whistle icon, Big Voice Jack Lerole.
Creative Skills Factory is proud and excited to be part of this collaboration.
