Music for Social Change in The Solomon Islands
Piano Association of Solomon Islands (PASI), the music organisation on The Solomon Islands, enables children to learn various instruments, not simply the piano.These children receive tuition
once or twice a year and have to manage alone apart from that.This project would provide expert instrumental teaching for the children
as part of PASI, and culminate in a showcase concert at the end of the project where they would perform along side internationally experienced professional players.
also work with local teachers and parents to share our teaching expertise so that they would have a wider range of techniques and resources available to encourage and enthuse
By giving the adults
a greater repertoire of practice
and study materials to draw on, there would be longevity for the children
after the project as they would get more experienced help in between lessons.
This project could bring such an exciting and invaluable range of experiences and opportunities to all
in PASI which would really spur them on, as well as hopefully working to
put in place the beginnings
of more regular and structured music tuition.
All sponsors will get a report on the project including photos, audio clips of the showcase concert and progress reports on the students so that you can see the joy that your contribution has brought.
If you would like to be a corporate sponsor, then please do get in touch to discuss how we could best promote you in return - your logo on our T Shirts, Twitter, weblinks on our site etc.
