Since the beginning of this year 2015, the SDB CALM Community has launched a campaign of training sixty primary school children of Don Bosco CALM in Brass band music. There is a high need of having many brass band players within our community. Our youngsters acquire music skills from their early age, and develop them little by little. Besides, we do all agree that these boys need entertainment, and music. It is one of the best ways of creating joy among the young and in the Salesian Community. As Don Bosco highlights it: ‘’A Salesian House without music resembles a body without soul’’. Another reason for this goes with that generation of our boys who are already in the Brass Band and who are completing their studies and preparing themselves to build their own future. This generation of boys is to be replaced by new players next year according to Uncle Wandera Joseph who is teaching and training our Brass Band boys and giving his precious time every Sunday. For this, thank you Uncle Joseph Wandera.
It is no easy task to learn how to blow a trumpet and master it within a short time. However our boys are courageous and have made a big stride in learning. We wish to acquire for them good trumpets soon in the near future. Till now, our 60 students are sharing 15 old trumpets given to us by some people of good will. Financial constraints prevent us from purchasing new trumpets for learners. May the Good Lord inspire one of you who read this to come to our rescue.
