from the teacher. To

from the teacher. To date, 1,000 Teacher's Guides have been distributed. The Guide provides teachers with six to eight lesson ideas for each song in the songbook. The lessons are focused on improving basic reading and writing skills. Reports are being received from teachers across Afghanistan stating how much they appreciate having their own teaching resource material. It is something they previously have not had access to. In Afghanistan most teachers receive little to no training. The teachers remark that the lessons in the Teacher‘s Guide have opened new ways to think about teaching that enhances creative thinking and problem solving skills. The songbook, CD‘s and cassette tapes are all produced in Kabul by an Afghan-owned company, TriVision, Kabul. This supports the Afghan economy and avoids prohibitive shipping costs. The books are distributed by several not-for-profit Afghan, Afghan-American or Canadian educational organizations, all of whom provide a report of where the songbooks have been distributed and photo documentation. There are plans, if funded, in 2012 to produce a 2nd songbook and another Teacher‘s Guide to accompany it. An Afghan woman is helping to collect additional traditional songs to add to the current collection.

SECTION: Music for Sustainable Community Development COUNTRY: Afghanistan PROJECT: REBUILDING MUSIC EDUCATION FOR AFGHAN YOUTH AND ESTABLISHING THE AFGHANISTAN NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MUSIC DESCRIPTION: The Revival of Music Education in Afghanistan is a project that has been adopted by the Ministry of Education of Afghanistan. The project seeks to establish a music institute as the first step to developing a national music education program and to assist the revival of Afghan music traditions and instruments through music education. The music education entity, Afghanistan‘s National Institute of Music (ANIM), is the first institution for gifted and motivated Afghan youth regardless of gender and social circumstances. The project is particularly focused on supporting orphans and street kids who will comprise fifty per cent of students. Other non-elite and underserved children will fill in the remaining places. The students of the ANIM have the opportunity to become positive and inspiring musicians with long term sustainable livelihood. As part of the process of national reconstruction and the revival of Afghan music traditions graduates of the ANIM will have the capacity and skills to enhance the educational, artistic, social and cultural life of Afghanistan. CURRENT STATUS: Afghanistan National Institute of Music has been established and inaugurated in June 2010. It operates under the Ministry of Education of Afghanistan. The ANIM offers high quality general education and combined specialized training in Afghan classical and Western music for children ranging from grade 4 to year 14. Currently 150 students (to be expanded to 300) are enrolled in ANIM, one-third of which are orphans and street-working children. Around 30% of the current students are girls. ANIM boasts facilities that are comparable to those of the finest music schools in the US and Europe. This includes wood paneling, handcrafted furniture, sound proofed rehearsing rooms, networked library, IT lab, Multi-media room, and a well-stocked library. ANIM has high quality Western musical instruments as well. Additionally, ANIM has established a rich collection of traditional instruments from Afghanistan and the subcontinent. ANIM has a world class ten-year music curriculum based on the wide range of both Afghan and Western music traditions, complimented by teaching and learning resources for all western musical instruments, utilizing textbooks, music sheets, method books, CD, DVD, music software, etc. This project has the financial and academic support of: — Ministry of Education of Afghanistan (MOE) — World Bank — German Foreign Office — Government of India — Embassy of the USA — German Cultural Centre, Goethe Institute, Kabul — Society of Music Merchants (SOMM) — Embassy of Finland — Embassy of the Netherlands — National Association of Music Manufactures (NAMM) — Association of the American Voices — Yamaha Gulf — Taiwan Reliance — National College of Music, London — Monash University, Australia — International Society for Music Education — International Music Council 45
