Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Musicology, grade: Unknown, Griffith University (Queensland Conservatorium of Music), course: Bachelor of Music, language: English, abstract: Musicians without Borders was founded in 1999 and registered as a charitable foundation in 2000. The motto of the foundation is 'war divides, music connects' (Musicians without Borders, 2017). This motto is reflective of the purpose of the foundation, which is to unite people and communities through music. Musicians without Borders has established a range of music programs in numerous war-torn communities including Soy Música in El Salvador, Mitrovica Rock School in Mitrovica and Kosovo, Music Bridge in Northern Ireland, Palestine Community Music in Palestine, Rwanda Youth Music in Rwanda, Welcomes Notes in Italy, Germany and the Netherlands, and Community Music and Health in Uganda (Musicians without Borders, 2017). Laura Hassler, the founder and director of Musicians without Borders, studied cultural anthropology and music at Swarthmore College. She worked for the Friends (Quaker) Peace Committee and the Committee of Responsibility on Vietnam in Philadelphia, Thich Nhat Hahn's Vietnamese Buddhist Peace Delegation in Paris, and the US Fellowship of Reconciliation in New York in the 1970s. In 1977, Hassler moved to the Netherlands where she founded a World Music School and later founded Musicians without Borders in 1999 (Musicians without Borders, 2017). This essay explores the Mitrovica Rock School initiative, which was established in August 2008 with the aim of providing a 'neutral platform for youth from both sides of ethnically divided Mitrovica to meet as young musicians and aspiring rock stars' (Peace Direct, 2016). In particular, the success of this initiative in achieving its social goals will be measured as well as the extent of the outcomes. Ultimately, the Mitrovica Rock School initiative will be critically evaluated to determine its effectiveness in bringing about positive social change.

Kassidy-Rose McMahon is an up and coming composer, from rural Charters Towers in North Queensland. She embarked on her musical journey at age 12, when she discovered her underlying aptitude for piano. Her growing passion for music led to her to study music theory under her high school music teacher at Charters Towers State High School. This inspired a love for composing and arranging music. Aside from piano, Kassidy-Rose adopted a range of new instruments throughout high school including mallet percussion, drumkit, flute, saxophone, and bass guitar. Since commencing employment at Wellers Hill State School in 2017 as the piano accompanist for three string orchestras, she was transformed into an avid violist. This growth is credited greatly to the strings teacher of Wellers Hill State School, Miss Josephine Price. In 2017, Kassidy-Rose undertook a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University, as a classical piano performance major. Throughout her tertiary studies, she worked closely with the choir of Holland Park State High School under the direction of Miss Jacqueline Duckworth and Music Extension students taught by Mr Raymond Cosgrove. She also volunteered her time to helping out with the Wind Ensemble rehearsals at Mount Gravatt State High School, led by Mr Matthew Fellows. Kassidy-Rose aspires to work in the music education industry and plans to delve into the world of music research in the near future. She attributes her success to her mother, friends, conservatorium staff, and teachers who she has received tremendous support from throughout her career.
