Music Classes

The making of a musician.

The making of a musician.

This week we started music classes with M’lop Tapang  who have been kind enough to take on a group of our students. While lessons are free, up until now we have had no form of transportation to take our children there, but with a very generous donation from James and Chloe (supporters of the center) this cost has now been covered. It is a brilliant opportunity for the students who have never had a chance to learn music before or in most their cases even touch an instrument.

Drums were very popular.

Lots of concentration.

The aim is to make a band with each child eventually focusing on one instrument (and one singer). When they are ready they will get to perform at the M’lop Tapang concerts in front of lots of people and get feel like real rock stars.

The teachers at MT are lovely, very patient and extremely talented. The children looked really inspired listening to some of the staff play. For the time we were there I have honestly never seen the children look so involved in a lesson, they were transfixed. It was fantastic to see.

Learning some scales.

Obviously it is going to be hard work for the children, but they are all determined to put their time into it. Music is such a brilliant outlet to express yourself through and one so new to the children that we are all really excited to see what they come up with.

    Hi Jen

    Brilliant!! I have seen this look in other children too on special occasions. The transfixed look and it is awesome! The concentration is unbelievable, their whole being is involved, not just their mind.

    Well done you for organising this!

    Best wishes
