Professional musicians found drum school in hallstadt

professional musicians found drum school in hallstadt

Norbert weinhold drums for the cellar squad, with which the rapping folk musicians positioned themselves on rough festival stages as well as in the rotation of mtv and viva. Meanwhile, christoph laubender was swinging the sticks as a freelancer for bands like deichkind or sasha: references, the "insight-drums" benefit. That's what the french called their drum school, where ambitious youngsters can now learn the necessary knowhow from professionals, so that they can maybe play at open airs like "rock am ring" one day on the piano.

Discovered in a church
With a love of music in his genes, christoph laubender grew up in a "classically minded" school family on. With restrained enthusiasm the hofheimer practiced on the piano. All fingerings on black-and-white keys ended after a vacation, during which the twelve-year-old discovered the instrument that has accompanied him ever since: "in a church, of all places, i discovered an abandoned drum kit. I hit it – and it was all over me", says the now 39-year-old. That same year, schuler played in his first band – not unlike norbert weinhold, who immediately proved his clout in the hard rock field. The munich drum school "drummer's focus" brought the two musicians from lower franconia together on the isar, who are now passing on their theoretical and practical stage experience to the next generation in upper franconia.

"We teach interested people – from beginners to professionals – in all styles of modern drumming", says laubender. An accentuation, with which "insight-drums" can be used different from the classically oriented education of state institutions. "We don't work with students to prepare them for classical orchestra work", says laubender. It was more a matter of qualifying them for stage appearances with bands – from jazz to hip hop, rock and pop to metal. "Some musicians can hardly cope with the dynamics that are increasingly required."

Kita honors st. Martin

The kindergarten team "haus fur kinder am kastanienbaum" (house for children at the chestnut tree) had prepared together with the parents' council a great martins festival. Around 100 children and twice as many adults came to the service and lit up the church with lanterns made by their parents. The children played the story of saint martin.

In front of the church, matleen theil stood ready with her white horse as saint martin and led the procession. From the market place the rough procession moved to the bus turning place of the anna-B.-eckstein school. The parents' council had planned the martinsfest there. At the beginning there was also the story of martin sharing his red coat with a beggar. In the school auditorium, children and adults warmed up with cucumber soup and warm drinks. The popcorn machine was constantly besieged, but there were also other small dishes and cold drinks available. A special feature was that all kindergarten children wore a lantern and a pendant with a goose around their necks. The latter could be exchanged for a yeast cake in the form of a martins goose. The children and adults celebrated the excellently organized st.-martinday.

Integration through training in the green professions

At the end of november, 17 students from one of the vocational integration classes at the vocational school center (BSZ) in ochsenfurt took the train and bus to the LWG in veitshochheim to learn about the professions of gardener and winemaker. According to a press release, the trip was organized by the office for food, agriculture and forestry (AELF) kitzingen in cooperation with margit stuhler, the coordinator of the vocational integration classes at the BSZ ochsenfurt.

A look at the practical side is indispensable

"Many of those who are cursed don’t even know what vocational training opportunities exist here in horticulture," says mathilde batz, educational advisor for horticulture at AELF kitzingen. "In practice, everything is a little different than in theory. It is therefore important for the students to learn about materials, machines and work processes in horticulture through visits to companies and construction sites in addition to the vocational information they receive at the vocational school," says batz. The presentation of the gardening professions is intended to arouse young people’s interest in an apprenticeship in the green industry.

Daycare places: place for every third child

Daycare places: place for every third child

Everyone is talking about it: nationwide, there are not enough daycare places in daycare centers to meet the needs of all those who will have a legal right to one from august 2013. From this point on, children under the age of three will also be able to go to a daycare center if their parents or legal guardians want them to. Is there also a shortage in the bad kissingen area?? It turned out that the municipalities of the region do not expect a wave of lawsuits.

Where family planning is still lacking
According to article 5 of the bavarian child education and care act, the municipalities are to ensure that the necessary daycare places are available. It's not that simple. Because there are often difficulties in planning the demand for places for children under the age of three, says thomas duda from the youth welfare office at the district administration office. Parents did not yet have any idea of their family planning, and children who actually had to be registered have not even been born yet. And it is still unclear who will claim childcare allowance.

When kindergarten questionnaires are handed out to determine need, the response rate is usually only 25 to 30 percent, which is not very informative. The need for daycare was usually determined using the average number of births and a formula for calculating the number of children under one. According to the study, five percent of children up to one year of age will need care, about 25 percent of children between one and two years of age, and 50 percent of children between two and three years of age.

Bread for a new classroom

Bread for a new classroom

For several years now, weisendorf schoolchildren have been helping needy children in the indian region of zubza in nagaland. What began with a pen pal relationship initiated by religion teacher ernst klimek has since grown into numerous fundraising campaigns. According to a press release, the schoolchildren, who call themselves zubzas, now want to finance a new classroom at the school in zubza. In the family service of the parish of st. Josef, who supported them, they first reported on the current situation in india.

Too far away from school
There is a high infant mortality rate, and 45 percent of children between the ages of six and 14, especially girls, do not attend school. Eleven million children live on the streets. Many children live too far from school and their parents cannot afford to pay for their accommodation.
And yet there is a chance for the children and pen pals in nagaland, he says. The don bosco school there continues to accept children when their parents cannot afford to pay a contribution due to their low and often irregular income of 20 euros a month. However, since up to 60 children attend classes in the classrooms, the zubzas want to help finance another urgently needed classroom this year. The school receives hardly any state support.
"We are always coming up with new and interesting activities for our pen pals, including the 725th anniversary of weisendorf. You will be amazed", ten-year-old lena made a promise to the church service visitors. The children's rights team, which now also operates as a terre des hommes action group, hopes that as many citizens as possible will participate in the new aid project by donating to the classroom.

100 solid breads sold
For the kick-off, the zubzas and their teacher hanne bohringer had come up with a culinary incentive: slices of bread with a delicious spread. After the blessing by pastor lars rebhan, these and 100 loaves of solid bread "sold like hot cakes", ten-year-old laura was delighted. By making a donation, the children of nagaland can grow up in a loving and respectful environment and later become advocates for themselves, their families and their village community, the schools advertised. And 100 percent of the aid arrives in zubza.
In october 2014, the parish of st. Josef with pastor lars rebhan a visit to the partner parish and a trip to zubza. Perhaps then the ceremonial inauguration and blessing of the new classroom can already take place. In addition, the pediatrician renata lysy will report on friday, april 19, at 4 p.M. In the weekenau. April, at 4 p.M. In the weisendorf town hall hall about her visit to zubza. On 16.

Since the beginning of the week, children from nine kindergartens and schools in the region have had to pack their bathing suits. The educational swimming pool in ahorn is completed. The revelation is organized according to a phased plan. School swimming is on the agenda for the first 14 days, before the water rescue team can resume training and the adult education center can start its courses in the teaching pool.

Before the green light could be given, a whole series of legal requirements had to be met and the remaining work had to be completed. Security took precedence over speed, emphasizes mayor martin finzel. An educational swimming pool is very different from the garden pool at home. The community of ahorn is now grateful to have gained a strong partner for the opening phase in the thermal bath service company of bad rodach, which is one of the most experienced companies in the industry with several baths throughout the whole of germany. A europe-wide invitation to tender for prescribed services will take place in the next few months. As one hort, also the bad rodacher enterprise wants to participate in it. Gb

Frankish cuisine becomes scarce

frankish cuisine becomes scarce

Klaus-peter gabelein that’s it! Schauferla off – beer off – schnapps off – lights off – end! On friday evening, regulars and regular customers of the "zum roten ochsen" restaurant in herzogenaurach’s city center, a fond farewell is in store. After more than 16 years, the lessee, the "max, as max weib was called by his guests, the popular diner on the market square closed down. And once again there is perplexity and almost despair among the original herzogenaurachers because of the increasing pub death in the city center. With the end of the "ox a piece of tavern tradition also comes to an end – at least for the time being, because the owner of the house plans further a gastronomic use.

"Where can you still get french food in the city center??" The question is justified. Only in the "fresh spring in the future, this will be possible at the galster family, otherwise you will have to go to the other parts of town, to burgstall (gasthaus bar), dondorflein (gaststatte pfister) or niederndorf (hamper family) – and that’s it for original french cuisine. In the course of the year the popular inn in beutelsdorf also closed down, in haundorf in the "blaue traube is only very sporadically opened and "cooked up" will be at the most at the kirchweih there. And then there is the "bayerischer hof", but the host "emmi has also only limited opened.

How was that 20, 30 years ago or even 40 years ago? In the main street you could still eat a crispy roast pork in the restaurant, the "krone" was the "noblest local and in the "weiben hahn locals and guests praised the food from the "black henna", as the smart landlady was jokingly called. Years and decades ago, the "wari" still existed, the restaurant wittmann in the hans-sachs-strabe, the "tenne in the back alley at the corner of engelgasse or the "ansbacher tor" with german kuche. In the polster-brau-stuberl at the end of the west main street cooked the couple amon, which has also offered in the FC-home for many years best french food. The list of local love still continues to grow.
