Rock School up and running in North and South

Hi all!

Just a note to let you all know that we’ve started band coaching and lessons in the North. If you haven’t joined yet and you want to get involved, you can get in touch with Milos Drazevic of CBM at drmilos81@yahoo.com.

It looks like we’ll be able to start in the South next week. The coordinator for the branch in the South is Edon Ramadani. If you want to join, you can send Edon a note at edonramadani@hotmail.com.

I’ll be in Mitrovica all of next week. Gerdien and Ruud of the Rock Academy will be joining me on Wednesday October 29. And of course we would love to see everyone from the Summer School again.

Rock on!

The Beat Goes On to support the Mitrovica Rock School

The drum festival The Beat Goes On, which will be held in Amersfoort (NL) this Saturday, has chosen the Mitrovica Rock School as one of its two causes.

TBGO will donate part of the festival's proceeds to the Mitrovica Rock School. There will be an MwB delegation at at the festival to talk about the Mitrovica Rock School and, of course, to enjoy the show.

We're very excited about the enthusiasm the Mitrovica Rock School is generating among Dutch musicians and music organizations, and especially by this great match with TBGO!

MwB winner of Music & Words competition!

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the Dutch record label Music & Words nominated five organizations for prizes ranging from € 25 to € 2,500. Thanks to our many friends and Rock School fans, MwB came in first!

MwB has decided to put the money towards the next steps in the Mitrovica Rock School project: band coaching in Mitrovica. Our partners at CBM are working around the clock to make sure we'll be able to start in both sides of Mitrovica this October. We're very excited about the next steps and, of course, very grateful for this generous contribution at such an important point in the project.
