For General Prem Tinsulanonda, music is related to many things as he likes to sing and also sponsor many music events. He has purchased an used piano and always practices with discipline before and after his piano lessons. Consequently, General Prem began to compose music and even set up the Army Orchestra which has performed in many occasions.
In supporting music education, Gen. Prem Tinsulanonda has provided scholarships to music students of the Army orchestra and encouraged the students to further study Master of Music as Army recognizes the importance of music.
The College of Music, Mahidol University is grateful for General Prem’s long term support and sponsorship through the “Prem Music Fund” to provide music education for the disadvantaged students who are musically talented and to bring good music to those who want to study music.
