Music

Music

Many people value music for its transcendent qualities - a sense of going beyond the everyday self.

In the last century huge transformations took place in musical consciousness, creating new visions of time, pitch, harmony, tuning and instruments.

Out of such vision, the Tonalis Music Centre was founded in 1991, to provide a social and spiritual foundation for contemporary music and to develop a new paradigm of music involving therapy, education, new acoustic instruments, improvisation, inner and sacred perspectives, and the contemporary musical soundscape.

Tonalis offers three part-time music foundation courses:

  • • Music education
  • • Uncovering the voice
  • • Community music
