Their performance was widely shared in the social media, and ever since, they have been receiving good reviews.
Students at Pam’s Kindergarten are being taught ukulele, guitar, piano and drum. At just six-seven years old or even younger, the children are having the time of their life playing ukuleles, guitars and pianos.

Khanthing Shimray, who is in-charge of music shared that he was “grateful for this beautiful platform. It is such a joy to see the students spending more time on music at home and not on mobile phone. It involves a lot of patience. After class, we are all exhausted. But at the end it is worth the challenge. To explore, mould and shape the talents of the young minds and give a platform to showcase their talent is on my mind.”
