Teresa Lahpai Hkawn Zet


Hi! My name is Teresa Lahpai Hkawn Zet. I am from Myikyina in Kachin State and I am Kachin. I am 29 years old. I finished my Bachelors degree in geography in 2003. Luckily, I have a chance to learn my music in Gitameit Music Center. Before I am here I shared music with young people as much as I knew. One of the priests also encouraged me to study music. I am very poor. My family could not afford for me to attend this music school. But that priest sponsored me for six months. Now, I have been given a scholarship by Gitameit and I am very happy. Our Catholic Church in Myitkyina is very weak in music. We did not use the piano. When the Columbian missionaries arrived, they used piano and violin, but then after they left, no one could use these instruments. I am eager to start this again. But I must know about music and how to play the piano. Now, I am joining the choir, voice class, rudiments of music, a cappella song-writing, piano. My main major is piano. I also want to learn how to conduct. After finishing my music school, I will lead our choir back home. I am interested to share my music. I think Gitameit Music Center is the best one in Myanmar.
