Dinesh is twelve years old and a student at the Mitrata Nepal Music Program in Kathmandu, Nepal. Each Saturday morning, the students all gather to practice drumming and dancing. Dinesh told us he feels proud because “I get some important knowledge by learning music in the classes.” He is currently working on his skills playing the Madal drum. When asked who his biggest musical influence is, he said his drum teacher, Rameshwor, holds that honor.
"The music school has helped me learn better at school because I feel better. I have a passion to learn drawing and dance, and would like to be an artist in the future."
Dinesh receives a Certificate of Achievment for his dedication to learning and playing music.
