Education is a long and slow process, that can never be oversimplified. It requires competent teachers with both passion and patience to spread the seeds, to nurture, to care and let it grows; but teachers is only a part of the entire equation. Public awareness plays an important role in promoting arts / music.
If you enjoy arts / classical music, don't stop here, we must ensure our children will continue to appreciate these arts. In the present society which is consumed by instant gratification and short attention span, many are unable to graps the complexity and depth of classical music / literature / arts; but instead, have mistaken 'chances' or randomness of chaos as an art form.
These outreach programs / lecture series below are non-profit generating, but they are not free, as the materials took time and effort to develop, not to mention to organize and to promote. We need supports, financially or in any other forms.
You can help us by:
1. Hosting the programs, and or,
2. Sponsoring the venue, and or,
3. Sharing this page to friends whom might like to help too.
Thank you very much.
