This fundraising event would not have been possible without the generous contributions made by Jonny Phillips, the very musical boys and girls of Cute Roots, and our friend; poet and raconteur, Ledger de la Bald, who all agreed to perform for free – and Ben Jones, who agreed to provide the sounds and the PA and to deal with all things audio-technical! Thanks guys!
Check ’em out!

Thank you Rik the boss and the manager Sith at the Botanical Garden for having us from Music for Everyone School played live music there for two days. We enjoyed playing there very much and had a really nice time traveling up and down the Mekong river with scenic views along the river banks. Great to meet lovely people there and seeing lots of different types of trees, flowers and plants. We’ll look forwards to our future performance there again. Thank you very much!
Another Thank you post, to thank Mrs Petra Gimbad for your time at MES. It’s a wonderful for our students to have a voice coach, as we have many like singing at MES and this benefits them. Petra is a voice student from Malaysia who is visiting LPb for a few days with her husband. She’s so generous to share her holiday with students at MES and give vocal lessons all day.
Lots of thanks Maly from London for your two guitar donation! They’re very nice guitars, one Paramount acoustic guitar gives a very unique sound and can also connect to the amplifier. One is a classical guitar which will become handy for classical guitar players at MES.

Kop Chai Lai Lai Timo from Germany for visiting MES, after being quite quiet, it’s great to see a volunteer and visitors visiting the school. Thanks for sharing your over 10 year experience of classical guitar playing style and THANKS for making donations, your contributions can make a big difference for children.
