The children benefited from seeing an artist at work and from working alongside him.
......"Gerard conducted a whole school music assembly and held the attention of students for an hour, playing and teaching students about music and other cultures.
The programe was indeed "a many splendid thing". It helped to break down the barriers of prejudice that is born of ignorance and fear as well as providing an enriching art experience."

The students were able to learn about another cultureand broaden their horizens and break down any barriers towards another nation and its art forms.
Their work was a tribute to their(students) spirit and the fullness of their 'relentless search for Zen in their art.'
