“I hope to stay connected to music throughout my time at UWC Thailand. I am motivated to learn more about the piano and would be excited to expand my musical abilities and try something new that brings me joy.”– Elizabeth LESHER
Kru Frederick Estrada joined the UWC Thailand community eleven years ago and is our well-loved Music teacher for Nursery to Grade 9. As a dedicated, responsible, hardworking and patient music educator, Frederick strives to reach out to each student through interactive teaching, introducing new concepts, fostering a fun learning environment and helping students blossom into well-rounded individuals. As such he has recently created a Music Scholarship through which he works with incoming DP National Committee Scholars. This year Joseph and Elizabeth are recipients scholars of this Music Scholarship and they learn and practice piano weekly under his guidance. The opportunity has been greatly appreciated by both students who are able to broaden their musical skills and deepen their love for music.
“I love music, and I can play all of the string instruments such as guitar, ukulele, and bass. Before I attended UWC Thailand, I was a guitarist and I usually worked with pianists. Even though I only have experience in the string instrument, I want to broaden my skill to be able to play piano.”– Joseph SAPUTRA
