Music project in the kindergarten of a country school

by Dorothea Fankhauser

Funding for this Campaign ended on 2017-08-07


Raised out of 1300.00€




Days Remaining


The kindergarden children in Terstenik love music but they need instruments to improve their music skills.

The very remote country school in Terstenik is run by the committed, artistically interested director Bekim Xhoka. Painting, drawing, folks dance, ballet and theater have been taught for some time with the simplest means. The offer is enthusiastically used by the pupils.
For several months, the singer and music teacher Valmir Shala has joined the teaching staff. He directs a small student choir, accompanies the dance groups and organizes musical events in the large entrance hall of the school. Several concerts have already taken place in Terstenik with youth orchestras from Switzerland.
The school also has a large kindergarten with over 40 children. Valmir would like to sing and play music with them also. 'Music sets the soul free' is he convinced and already full of ideas what music pieces to play with the kids.
We have already been initiating music projects at the kindergarten 'Oases' in Prishtina and 'Andrra' in Gjakova. With a lot of enthusiasm the children sing and play there on simple instruments such as triangle, xylophone, flutes, harmonica, drum instruments. These music lessons, which take place once or twice a week, have a great social and educational value in addition to the joy it gives to the children, as the teachers confirm.
For Terstenik, we would like to have a good, e-piano, which could be used in the kindergarten as a pedagogical accompaniment of the pupils choir as well as in the concert hall. In addition, we would like to have melody and rhythm instruments for the kindergarten so that the children could play and develop their talent in their own little orchestra.
For the realization of this music project we need about Euro 1300.
Please help us, that in Terstenik the music can gain its place it deserves.

Thank you, 
Dorothea Fankhauser
