Message from PASMAE President
I am delighted to welcome everyone to an international conference that promises to be memorable as we unite under the umbrella of PASMAE. Our 2019 PASMAE-ISME Regional Conference in Seychelles is likely to attract many African music educators, but also many from around the world. Please do join us. PASMAE conferences have been a channel for rekindling the passion for knowledge in musical arts education across Africa and beyond. Our forthcoming conference is no exception. We will focus our discourse on Sustainable Musical Arts Education for Africa. I am looking forward to sharing with you an unforgettable music ‘indaba’.
Yours Sincerely, Elijah Eze Tochukwu
It is my sincere pleasure to cordially welcome you all to what I anticipate to be a historical and remarkable conference 2019 Seychelles. As a host nation who is surrounded by so many challenges impacting our youths, we believe that Arts have a huge impact on the health of the nation at large especially in the preservation of our cultures. With this conference, we feel privileged to be the host which in a way will positively contribute to our goal in promoting Music and Arts education which currently is a major concern of our nation.
We feel proud to be among the rest of the mother Africa in fighting to preserve, educate and promote Arts education which is crucial in the lives of all learners and all the human societies across the continent.
When you will be arriving at the airport, you will for sure notice that the people of Seychelles are kind and peaceful people. They are the practitioners of what it means to love one another. On the other hand, if you take time to listen carefully, you will hear sweet melodies of nature characterized by the greener vegetation which is our identity as Seychellois.
As you will be leaving Seychelles, I am indisputable that you will take with you wonderful memories and tell stories that indeed people of Seychelles live for music.
On behalf of the government of Seychelles, International School Seychelles, and the Conference organizing committee, I happily welcome you to this prestigious continental and educational conference even as I look forward to seeing many of you from all the four corners of this lovely universe.
Welcome to PASMAE conference 2019 Seychelles. Welcome to Seychelles.
