For Students

WORKSHOPS

Traditional Music

The Mrigadayavan Palace Foundation founded the Mrigadayavan Palace Thai Youth Ensemble to provide free Thai classical music lessons to the children of the Border Patrol Police who serve in the Rama VI Camp and Naresuan Camp, as well as children of the Palace employees. On the weekends, the Palace invites teachers from the Plainern Palace, a palace associated with Thai classical music teaching, and teachers from Phetchaburi’s Ladies Ensemble. The lessons include Thai classical music and the compositions of King Vajiravudh and his contemporaries. The classes are open to the public; the application period begins in July and new students are accepted once a year in October, when the initiation ceremony takes place. Please contact the Palace Office at mrigadayavanpalace@gmail.com for more details.
