I am off to East Timor and Darwin tomorrow, to establish partnerships and hopefully commitment for a secure lockable place for the Music School in Dili we are helping to establish “Hadahur”. This is the first such music school for Dili, combining traditional music as well as western as the disciplines to be taught in the school. I hope to be able to post some photos shortly.
It is vital to the school that good support be developed in Darwin, through Charles Darwin University and Northern Territory Music Schools. We are hoping to secure financial support from companies involved in Timor, to help defray the costs of sending teachers on a regular basis from Darwin to Dili (teaching violin and guitar initially). This is a small start in what hopes to be a successful music school.
More Soon. If you have instruments, funds to donate, please go the the page on the site for Donations.
