About Music Makers School

Over thirty years ago, when Mrs. Albino de Coteauís son, Michael, was a little boy she decided to teach him music. Not wanting to teach him alone she invited other children from the community.

The population of the school has grown from a mere handful of children to over fifty today!

Just over a decade ago, Shari Clarke-Williams joined the Music Makersí family. ďI personally believe when a child enters this family they learn more than just music: they learn discipline, respect and other social graces. I feel honoured and Iím thankful to Mrs. Albino-de Coteau for the opportunities that she has given me,Ē declares Ms. Clarke-Williams unreservedly.
