Goducate Teacher In Laguna Goes For Voice Training

The music program in Laguna Province in The Phillipines has been very successful in getting kids off the street, in helping some get back to or continue school or college on music scholarships, in helping them earn pocket money by playing at functions or by teaching music, and in training in the students in discipline, teamwork, leadership, endurance and many other qualities.

There are about 250 students in the program now. However, musical instruments are expensive. But everybody has vocal cords. So Goducate intends to teach singing.

The first step was to send one of our music teachers, Abegael, for voice training. Abegael teaches the violin and is also a kindergarten teacher at a Goducate Learning Center. She has just completed a summer course at the University of the Philippines. Her course closed with a concert, at which she performed very well. She said, “It’s my first time to perform in a concert hall, and it is very exciting”. Her teacher has invited her back to take part in a concert in January.
