Refugees waiting on status in Australia benefit from music

Refugees looking for living status in Australia are passing their time learning music.
Great deals on musical instruments
People looking for a new life in Australia and waiting to see if their refugee applications are either processed successfully or waiting to be deported are being given the opportunity to invest their time in music. The Villawood Immigration and Detention Centre is unlike any in the world, with kind-hearted volunteers offering detainees music lessons on [instruments]( like the [acoustic guitar]( and [piano](, reported Fairfield Champion. Philip Feiinstein, who started volunteering as a piano teacher a year ago, has helped organise a collection of guitars to be donated as permanent instruments at the centre. "It’s a wonderful feeling when, as a member of the community, you can help other people. "They’ve dealt with so much just to get here. Giving them music is giving them self-esteem. These are our future citizens and we have to welcome them. I make sure they get Australianised — I teach them Waltzing Matilda!" He added the music played varies from Cat Stevens to Ronan Keating. Recently the BBC reported the prison orchestra project in one of Venezuela’s newest prisons has been such a success that it has led to drastic improvements in behaviour from inmates.ADNFCR-2133-ID-800719962-ADNFCR
