    It requires extreme dedication, persistence, long lasting motivation and a genuine love of music to forge a career in performance. The classical guitar instrument will be recognized again all over the world. Keep playing.

    Thank you very much to Lions Clubs International for providing such a fantastic opportunity for musicians across the world. It requires extreme dedication, persistence, long lasting motivation and a genuine love of music to forge a career in performance. Daniel displays all of these qualities in abundance, in addition to a bit of talent ! :-). Especially in Australasia and surrounds, musicians and artists need all the help they can get and the support which Lions Clubs International has given Daniel in the form of a cash prize will be necessary and of invaluable support to him as he continues to further his career in Australia and internationally. Sincere thanks to Lions and congratulations to Daniel!

    We are very proud parents of Daniel. He worked so hard and is one of the very dedicated classical guitarists who wishes that the classical guitar instrument will be recognized again all over the world. Thank you very much to Lions Club for giving our young talented classical guitarist musicians the opportunity to show their talents.

    I’m very happy for these young winners, classic guitar players! I hope that clarinet or piano will be the next chosen instrument, because we have had young winners (from 16 to 22 years old) in our Lions Club Agrigento Chiaramonte National “1° IncontrArti MUSIC AWARD,” May 27-28-29th 2011, in Realmonte (Agrigento, Sicily, Italy): a clarinetist, first place, an two pianists, second and third places. So we hope to send at least one of them to next Global Youth Competition, if their musical instruments are chosen. We’ll read L.C. International website to be advised about this fantastic Lions Competition. We wait and our true talents hope! Thank you!
