LG, Lincoln Center Help Foster ‘Next Dudamel’

October 13, 2009 § Leave a comment

LG Arts Center, one of the biggest performing arts centers in South Korea, launched a music education program in a partnership with Licoln Center Chamber Music Society.
‘LG-Lincoln Center Center Chamber Music School will pursue to be a korean version of El Sistema which is a famous Venezuelan music education program for fostering talents such as Gustavo Dudamel, a conductor and music director of LA Philharmonic.
I noticed that in Korea, there have been recently a lot of  joint music education programs like this. My first thought was that those programs are great and will create a better environment for students who have passion in music and desire for better, deeper learning, but then, I realized the programs always put this word “gifted” in the criteria of potential students. (athough this LG-Lincoln Center music school is  a little different and select “gifted and underprivilidged” students) Students should be already proved to have special talents in music to join those programs, and there is almost no chance for students who have not yet been proved to be gifted but have strong interests and passion in music. Although I agree that it is important to have and offer a good education system to musically talented students, quality music education should not be limited to the certain groups.
