Courage & Solidarity Matter

Je t'aime (Lara Fabian) - Sax Cover by WILHELM

All courage is developed by the simple act of facing your fears. By doing so in solidarity, we can create a powerful unity of feeling and action for a better world. A world where everything alive breathes freely.

"Courage & Solidarity Matter is the immensely important and relevant message in my rendition of "Je t'aime". The two keywords constitute the absolute fundament in the fight for equality and the possibility to breathe freely.

Music is a fantastic way to explore perspectives on vital matters worldwide. Hope you find my cover video helpful in achieving this!"

The Skrapan Graduation 2020 - An Unforgettable Graduation Day

The Skrapan Music Classes offer sweet tones when school principal Stefan Nyhem and his crew thank the graduates of 2020, in an already acclaimed and historical video production. Many MPM Crew members can be heard among the jamming music students. Listen to the saxophone and guitar solos in the film's climax. Really awesome!

See the full video below. Click the picture to play the video from the film’s climax (42:04).

 
 
 

“Most music students at The Uppsala Lundellska School surely agree when I claim the Skrapan Music Education Program to be one of the country's most engaging high school music courses, for both vocalists and instrumentalists. Although stage presence and performance isn't emphasized nor prioritised, the school always has your back with fantastic teachers at your disposal, who provide full support for creative ideas regarding both musical and artistic aspects. For those who have a music-oriented vision of the future, The Skrapan Music Classes is an environment to thrive in, develop invaluable skills and grow as a musician and artist. It’s simply the first steps towards the goals of the dreams.

Dear Principal Nyhem - please make sure that everyone has free access to rehearsal facilities, from early morning to late evening. It’s the place where responsibility, cohesion and joint efforts give life to astonishing masterpieces. Elaborate the music studies with more collaborations and clinics with established artists and industry parties, and we will hear about many successful Skrapanists on the big world stages in the future."

Thank you for three rewarding & super cool years
Wilhelm Fredlund

MPM looks forward to future exciting music projects in collaboration with The Uppsala Lundellska School (Skrapan) and its students.
