SECTION: Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: India PROJECT: DISCOVERING MUSICAL POTENTIAL IN CHILDREN AND PROVIDING FREE MUSIC TEACHER TRAINING: MY PEACE MUSIC INSTITUTE DESCRIPTION: Many children in Kalimpong, District Darjeeling, have great musical potential but never come to know it. In the My Peace Music Institute, a nonprofit organization, these children get the chance to discover their potential and receive a free education to become music teachers. Funds are provided by the Institute for the children to complete high school and, in many cases, a college/university degree. Presently 24 boys and girls are in the program. All instruments (violin, viola, cello, key-board, piano and guitar) are provided by the Institute. The My Peace Music Institute also welcomes any student interested in music lessons and has more than 30 students enrolled whose parents contribute small amounts of money for the classes. The My Peace Music Institute (MPMI) has five goals: Introducing young people from marginal backgrounds to local and western classical music and providing them with training to become music teachers or musicians. The completion of the training will enable them to find jobs in the country or in institutions linked with the MPMI. Outstanding students will get the chance to further his/her studies abroad Encouraging the interaction of different social groups to promote understanding Providing free music performances to residents, who due to their social situation or due to handicaps are normally excluded Promoting intercultural cooperation, understanding and support To set up a larger network An informal partnership of the My Peace Music Institute with the Johann Sebastian Bach Music School (JSBM) in Vienna, Austria, aims at exchanging knowledge as well as enabling the MPMI‟s teachers and students to meet international teachers and learn from them. The costs for workshops of Austrian teachers in Kalimpong or study trips from Indian teachers to Vienna are jointly financed by the Bach Music School and My Peace Organization Austria, a charitable association for the support of the My Peace Music Institute. In May 2009 the JSBM gave an E-Piano to the My Peace Music Institute. CURRENT STATUS: With the help of the partners there are now plans to build a concert hall for the children.
