Amid the talks of holistic approach to education, one small music school struggles to strike the right chord. 

With a music set worth US $1000, Noam Lemish, 27, a music teacher from San Francisco, has travelled all the way to Bhutan, a trip made possible by his fans, family and friends. He teaches music in Kilu Music School in Thimphu trying to create an opportunity for kids to realise their potential in music. “Music is much like mathematics and language studies.

It is the only subject that allows bringing together emotional and intellectual capacity of the brain so that the children can learn as well as express through it,” Lemish said. He chose Bhutan to teach music because he wanted to be useful where he was needed so that he would be able to contribute.
