We were impressed by the fact that Music for Africa has entered over 100 students for grade exams with the Trinity College of Music in London. We were even more impressed by the fact that three Music for Africa students won bronze medals from the college in recognition for their mastery of classical guitar.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) December 17, 2009
Resonant Vibes (http://www.ResonantVibes.com)], a Kentucky-based Internet company, has announced that it will donate 10% of its profits for the second half of December to the charitable organization, Music for Africa. The Resonant Vibes website offers a unique dance music download store with complementary content and community features. The company decided to support a music-oriented cause as a goodwill gesture for the 2009 holiday season.
Music for Africa was founded by a British guitarist named Tom Toomey in 1999 after he saw a young South African boy "playing guitar" on an empty oil can with a piece of wood nailed onto it. Tom was moved to action by this touching incident and by the fact that South African schools were not providing musical education in their curricula.
With the help of caring local people, Tom started an independent music school at Lehlake in Phokwane, South Africa. The school continues to be funded by Music for Africa, which in turn has been supported by caring individuals, primarily in the United Kingdom.
In addition to donating to Music for Africa, Resonant Vibes hopes to raise awareness for the organization and its cause within the worldwide dance music community. Resonant Vibes has used its dance music blog as well as various social media channels to help increase the visibility of Music for Africa.
Resonant Vibes COO, Sam Gracie, who initiated the company's support for Music for Africa, said,
