This project is an initiative implemented by The Yamaha Music center in partnership with The Music Project to introduce music to school children across Sri Lanka. The Yamaha recorder is the ideal instrument for beginners as it provides a great introduction to playing and reading music. The Music Project chooses a school that is passionate in developing music and with the assistance of a team of school teachers, approximately hundred students are selected to participate in this program. Each student receives a free Yamaha recorder and a lesson pack. The Music Project team conducts a teacher training workshop to all the schools. Once the workshop is completed the individual schools continue the Yamaha recorder lessons and a monthly feedback form is sent by the teacher in-charge to regulate their progression. The Music Project is supported by JICA and a recorder specialist teacher from Japan is expected in July 2014, which will develop this program further.
