Jamestown

Situated on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, Jamestown also known as Webersvlei, is a small community nestled within the breathtaking panorama of the Simonsberg and Helderberg mountain ranges. In the suburbs’s Weber Gedenk primary school, the Jamestown Sounds community project runs in affiliation with the Music Department of Stellenbosch University. Jamestown Sounds provides after school music lessons for aspiring musicians from the neighbourhood’s primary and high schools. As a Not for Profit organization, Jameson Sounds aims to teach essential life skills to young people through music, as an avenue for personal expression and the honing of confidence. It is not uncommon to see a squad of young musicians strapped with their instruments to their backs walking home from music lessons on a weekday. Jamestown’s pristine and peaceful natural landscapes, far removed from the urban intensity of Stellenbosch’s town centre, make for a beautiful location for artistic intervention to manifest
