The idea for the project "See through Music" came through Petra - a visually impaired teenager who was a music student in RockSchool. Like any teenage girl, she was looking for the same things as her peers - a way to express herself, a supportive community, new friends, and a way to develop personally. Thus we saw the opportunity to create an adapted music education program for visually impaired young people like her. For them, music is a way to see the world and themselves in a new way, to develop invaluable personal traits and skills, and explore new career paths.
"See through Music" became the winner of the competition of Change 2018/2019 - an initiative of the Foundation "Reach 4 Change" and Nova TV and received funding for its implementation.
We managed to gather 57,748 votes of people who supported our cause as their own. The project provided a full scholarship for 48 hours of music lessons and over 80 hours of individual rehearsals for 19 visually impaired young people.
The first edition of "See through Music" in 2019 was very successful and inspired us to make the project into a regular initiative which we will continue to develop.
