Than Lwin music school - Yangon (Burma)
Description: Several times a year, students organize concerts where they mix jazz, classical music and A Capella singing (picture 15). The last one, at the Strand hotel, attracted around 1,000 people. Soe Khaing remembers the first time he left the country, to study in Thailand:

?This trip opened my eyes. Our countries are so close yet so different. In Bangkok, I was blown away by the freedom and the facilities that Thai musicians enjoyed. Their libraries were so full of books and music ! In Myanmar, when you lay your hands on a book, you don?t share. Not that we?re bad people or anything, but this stuff is just that precious. I was also surprised by how different our teaching methods were. In Yangon university, students are supposed to listen, take notes and memorize. But in Thailand, everybody wants to participate ! I hence decided to come back to Myanmar and teach music??
