I wanted to take a minute and let you all know a little bit of my vision for Music International.
After spending a lot of time in other countries working with musicians who always seemed to lack basic equipment and skills, I decided to try and make a difference in their situations.
It’s my desire to provide whatever equipment and training might be needed by those outside the U.S.
I also desire to involve musicians of every type and every instrument in trips. In the future, I want to be bringing more vocalists, guitarists, and keyboardists with me overseas. Music International’s “maiden voyae”, to Albania, included a singer/guitarist and vocalist who went to work with the music of a pastors conference.
Another specific goal is to involve young people. I cofounded Music International with my niece, Grace, who is a solid musician in her own right. It’s my hope to always have twentysomethings coming with me overseas.
I see Music International as a way to “teach someone how to fish” rather than simply providing an enjoyable musical experience for the moment. In other words, I see great value in not only sharing and performing in concerts, but also in passing on your musical skill and expertise to others.
