ISME-Gibson International Awards 2010 At the Plenary Session on Thursday 5th August two recipients received the ISME-Gibson 2010 Awards. Professor Jiaxing Xie received one of the Awards for the project Teaching children to sing songs of the home area which is aimed at minority children in Guangxi in the western part of China where the loss of traditional music is very serious. The aim is to restore the local musical traditions by training and promoting local folk singing of music teachers in the area so that more children will be able to learn their musical heritage. The second Award went to Mr Bin Wu, Vice chair of the Chinese Society for Music Education (CSME), for the project Music education in Chinese schools with special focus on the Western regions, which deals with the situation of music education in the Western part of China where there are certain minority groups. The aim is to provide the music teachers and children there with information, teacher training and teaching materials. Thousands of children are estimated to benefit from this project. Thanks to the ISME-Gibson Foundation for their generous support of these valuable projects. ************************************************** ABOUT THESE POSTCARDS
