"I realised that kids today have this hidden and sleeping gift for playing music. That when we actually tap into it, they unleash a really creative side to them." - Joshua Moodliar.

It's obvious that music is our source of energy, we live for it as it brings waves of emotions into our lives. 

We have a dose of music for each mood and we believe that music can cure anything. It can even bring you a sense of peace or be the answer to a life decision you are struggling to make. 

The North Glen News recently covered an interesting story about music and how a Music Teacher in Durban "believes that almost every child has a musical talent that lies dormant in them, waiting for it to be discovered and embraced".

Joshua Moodliar is the Director of Expressive Arts College in Umhlanga Ridge, Durban, and revealed that music has always been a part of his life from a young age. 

He strongly believes that there is a hidden musical talent in each child and once they tap into it, it can reveal a bountiful creative side to them. 

Moodliar has been teaching kids to play music for more than one and a half decades, so, it is clear he is passionate about teaching. So passionate that he opened up an exclusive offer for April and May.

Moodliar is offering free music lessons to 50 kids over the age of three. 

"Another fun musical challenge for families to get involved in is the Ed Sheeran Challenge which Moodliar initiated where families choose their favourite Ed Sheeran song, attend a free class and perform it with family." (The North Glen News)

It is so inspiring to see him adapt his way of teaching to suit his students. It is ultimately what parents and society want for kids; the evolution of teaching methods to be suited to the interests of kids so that learning can be fun and engaging.
