After decades of an outstanding career, ‘Sir’ Paul Banda is ready to impart knowledge to people interested in learning music through private music lessons.
His equally accomplished musician brother, Lucius Banda revealed this on Wednesday through his Facebook page when he praised ‘Sir’ Paul Banda.
Reads the post in part: “He taught himself how to play the guitar and sing in the 1970s. He is the man who has made a lot of us exist musically. He is our teacher, our mentor, our producer. He studied jazz in Bergamo, Italy in the 1980s. He can play and teach almost any instrument.”
He said with this background, he pleaded with him to teach others how to play musical instruments in Lilongwe.
In an interview, Lucius said this will give a chance to people interested to learn how to play musical instruments.
He said dates for starting the lessons will be announced in due course.
Many people have since praised Paul Banda for the initiative.
Commenting on Lucius’ Facebook post, Ronald Van der Merwe said: “Great idea chief. Please open a college of music. Malawi deserves the best. People need him to teach the masses music. In so doing there will be more talent from the children of Malawi hence the self job creation will be in the pipeline.”
