My name is Juris and I am responsible for all administration issues in the Society, the private Ernesta Lībieša rock music school.
The school was founded in June 2017, located in Riga. We teach guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboard instruments, vocals, cello, latvian kokle, harp, flute, true DJ art and sound recording basics.
The main thing is the desire to learn - we teach anyone, children and adults, as well as those who believe they have no musical ear or talent.
So far we have 60+ students. All teachers in our school are relatively young but experienced and progressive musicians, some are more familiar In Latvia, for example, cello Madara Fogelmane, finalist of the TV show "Supernova".
Emphasis is placed on individual classes, as well as on creating student groups of music. Three to four times a year we organize our student concerts (additionally they can get used to public on-stage performing). During the summer a day plenary in Riga and 24-hour plenary in Valka took place. We see enormous enthusiasm in our students, as well as their parents.
State supports only legally recognized educational institutions. We are confident those legal requirements do limit freedom of music perception and learning, because music learning process cannot tolerate any standardization!
We are in need of playable drums, two guitar amplifiers and new PAs. In fact, any support would be very much welcome.
