David: lawyer, teacher and musician

ESPAÑOL

David: Abogado, maestro y músico

En los últimos reportes, hemos descrito la vida, principalmente, de nuestros alumnos y alumnas de la Fundación. La elección de esos escritos fue mostrar la experiencia de los principales participantes de nuestro proyecto. Sin embargo, la labor ardua que han desempeñado los maestros y maestras que diariamente acuden a cada una de las agrupaciones, es verdaderamente admirable.

David se levanta por las mañanas temprano para llegar al Despacho y empezar el día con cartas, escritos, juntas, idas y venidas. Con su saco y corbata, lo podemos ver caminando por el centro de la ciudad, llevando documentos o terminando una junta. Lo saludamos y su sonrisa es inmutable, siempre la misma, totalmente franca y sencilla. El abogado, está a la vista.

Los lunes, martes y miércoles, tiene una cita en Moctezuma con 21 niños y niñas de 4 a 8 pm. El viaje es largo de la capital al lugar de la cita, son, aproximadamente, 2 horas. Sin embargo, el compromiso es total. No hay ni un pequeño titubeo. El traje y la corbata desaparecen, una playera negra con algún grupo musical en el pecho viste a David y, normalmente alguna cachucha o gorro en su cabeza, los pantalones de mezclilla y los tennis no pueden faltar.

Comienza uno de los mayores disfrutes de David: compartir la Música. En su clase lo esperan sus alumnos y alumnas de percusiones: “Profe, ¿qué vamos a hacer hoy?”. Ya tiene su clase preparada, las lecciones, los juegos, los chistes del día, y ¿por qué no?, uno que otro regaño.

David, a la par de ser maestro de percusiones, es el coordinador de la banda sinfónica de Moctezuma, donde busca resolver situaciones logísticas o de gestión que aparecen en el día a día. También organiza academias con los maestros y maestras, buscando ofrecer a los niños y niñas una educación musical comunitaria integral. Junto con la plantilla docente de Moctezuma, han logrado fortalecer a la banda sinfónica, asegurando su constancia, la calidad musical y la labor comunitaria.

Después de llegar de Moctezuma, David tiene ensayo por las noches con su grupo de worldmusic: Pamalanga, donde toca la batería desde hace más de 10 años. La música es inherente a él, lo ha cambiado. Como a él le ha transformado su vida, busca generar la misma experiencia a sus alumnos y alumnas. Él tuvo la oportunidad de conocer y desarrollarse en la música, él quiere ofrecer lo mismo a tantos niños y niñas como se puedan.

Viajar un poco más de 4 horas diarias, 3 veces a la semana, puede considerarse un trabajo no tan cómodo, sin embargo la convicción de que está trabajando por un bien comunitario que está impactando a más de 1000 familias potosinas, es lo que sigue haciendo que se esfuerce y ofrezca una educación de calidad. La sensación de partirse en 3 o 4 para poder ofrecer lo mejor de él mismo, es una decisión que David ha tomado para darse y compartir el regalo de la Música.

Agradecemos enormemente a todos los maestros y maestras comprometidos consigo mismos y con la sociedad. Donde en su quehacer diario muestran la fortaleza de trabajar en COMUNIDAD.

Seguimos cambiando al mundo, 1 músico a la vez.

 

ENGLISH

Davd: lawyer, teacher and musician

}In the last reports, we mainly recounted the life of the Foundation students. We wanted to give you the experience of all the people who work in the Project.. The work that the instructors do, is truly remarkable.

David wakes up early everyday so he can make it to the office, he starts the day with letters, written memos, meetings, comings and goings. As he is a lawyer, he is wearing a suit and tie, and we can see him downtown, taking documents or attending meetings. His smile is always there, always the same, plain and honest.

Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, he has an appointment in Moctezuma with 21 children from 4 to 8 pm. The road from San Luis to Moctezuma takes about 2 hours. However, the commitment is firm. There’s not even a blink. The suit and the tie disappear, and now he wears a black t-shirt and a Base Ball cap, jeans and sneakers can’t miss.

It began one of the most delightful activities for David: sharing Music. His percussion students wait for him: “Teacher, what are we going to do today?”. David has already prepared his class. The lessons, the games, the jokes, and, why not?, some scolding…

At the same time, David is the Administration Coordinator of the Moctezuma Symphonic Band. It is his job to solve the day-to-day logistic problems. He also organizes the teachers, seeking to offer the kids a holistic musical education. With all the teachers’ staff, they have made in Moctezuma a strong symphonic band.

Coming back from Moctezuma, David has night rehearsal with his worldmusic group: Pamalanga, where he has played the drums for more than 10 years. Music is within him; it has changed his life, so he is trying to share his experience with the girls and boys he works with.

Commuting more than four hours per day three times per week is not easy, but the conviction that he is working for the welfare of the community, in a drive that has touch more than 1,000 families, keeps him moving offering high quality education. Trying to do 3 jobs to offer the best of himself is a decision that David has made to share the gift of music.

We are very grateful to all the teachers who are truly committed with themselves and the society where they show their will to work daily for the community.

We go on changing the world one musician every day.
