Braemar College Music Teacher on Tour – Raleigh Williams Update

Braemar College Music Teacher, Raleigh Williams is currently touring Western Australia with Musica Viva.

imageRaleigh’s Update

The tour is going very well – it’s a pretty full on schedule and we haven’t had much free time, but it has been really rewarding playing live music for very regional towns (Bremer Bay – population 200 for example!, Scaddan PS had 30 students overall from prep to 10!). We are now in Perth for the week so the shows are up to 4 a day – 16 this week!

Something we talk about at the end of the show is Musica Viva’s instrument recycle program – I think it only exists in WA so far but MV redistributes donated instruments to schools interested in taking them – we took a drum kit for them to a very regional school on the south coast. When we visited the MV office in Perth we got to take a look at all the guitars, cellos, drums etc they have waiting for homes – what a fantastic program!

imageWe’ve performed in outdoor areas, basketball stadiums, footy clubs…it has often been to kids who might see live music once a year so it’s been an honour to be involved, and the participation of all the kids has been fantastic.

Cheers,
Raleigh
