Seychelles sees classical guitar music take center stage from an early age

Seychelles sees classical guitar music take center stage from an early age ( The Seychelles school of music, a department within the Ministry of Tourism and Culture held for the first time a classical guitar recital for its students. Present at the recital was the Program Director Jerry Souris and music teacher Francois Victor, the students together with their parents and friends who had come to give them support for this first recital. Such events will ensure that classical guitar music takes center stage in Seychelles from a very early age.

This small student guitar group has indeed participated in several shows before. However, this recital was special as it was the first recital being held at the school. The aim of this recital was primarily to build student’s confidence in playing in front of an audience, and for each student, no matter at what level they are, to have a repertoire to enjoy while learning the techniques of playing the classical guitar.

The program included 5 solos, 2 duos, youth ensemble and the senior ensemble the “ocean sounds.” The students participating at the recital included Parik Dang-Kow, Elvin Sandapin, Vinuja Chandratne, Jean-Luc Grandcourt, Rebecca, Alisha Ernesta and Amos Alexis. They performed several pieces including “the dangers of poking holes in ice,” “leccion,” “Ductia,” “Y.M.C.A,” “Old Swansea Town,” and many more including the traditional sega. The students were proud with their own performances and the support received from the teacher Francois Victor as well as the small crowd that had come to give them support.

The school continues to encourage students to start learning an instrument at a very early age depending on their interest be it guitar, piano, flute and other instruments. Music is an important contribution towards a child’s education and benefits all ages. It helps children to feel better about themselves and improve their community spirit according to researchers.
