Treasure Time Together
Treasure Time Together is a fund-raising initiative to support the publication of the AFRI-PIANO series. You can help by participating in this cause! Services offered as part of Treasure Time Together help to cover the running costs, platform fees for distribution, editing fees, typesetting, and design fees as well as assist with the equipment costs to enable us to present quality publications, recordings without charge, for the benefit of the entire community of AFRI-PIANO followers!
Our objective is to provide support for piano teachers in the private and public sectors as well as for aspiring music students specialising in piano.
Having 25 years of teaching experience and assessing piano teaching and performance across many areas in South Africa, the shortcomings, but also the strengths of piano teaching in South Africa were emphasised. Treasure Time Together is a response to this and offers workshops, online-courses and individual support for piano teachers and students.
Being passionate about sharing knowledge and with elaborate experience in teaching, examining, performing as collaborative pianist, and designing music courses, Liezl-Marét’s diverse experiences led to the establishment of Music Tapestry in 2015. Support is given in the form of individual consultations and workshops designed to address the specific needs of piano teachers, as well as online-courses, focusing on various aspects of piano teaching. Income generated from these initiatives goes towards the fund-raising project, Treasure Time Together. We have a rich heritage of piano works by South African composers for the developing pianist. Our mission is to bring this heritage to life and to share our passion for this treasure with piano teachers and piano students of all ages.
