GOOD NEWS for MES drum students! We’re working on a drum exercises and putting them in the papers to make a small booklet for our students at MES. The book will allow the students to be able to read music and practice all drum exercises from the book on their own after a very little input from our drum teach.
MES and the team could not make this book happened without great support from Mr. Marc Vincent from France, who’d been spending his few days during his stay in Luang Prabang constructing the students and the staff such ideas of how to play drum. We really thank you from all our hearts for your great supports and wish you all the very best. Your drum students!!!

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 Gregory and Victoria from Australia for your visit to the school and giving very useful advice and your very kind donation!
