Having now passed our 10th anniversary, this update of our website heralds the next stage in SEADOM's evolution. Our first decade was about establishing the organisation. Now, with our recent acknowledgement by ASEAN as a accredited entity and with all the major Southeast Asian music schools as members, we are ready for a new phase where the focus can be on developing a more coherent regional identity while enabling quality interactions between members and a shared sense of community and of purpose. Southeast Asia's musical ecosystem is as rich and diverse as its nature : our responsibility as music educators is to ensure music evolves its presence and meaning in our rapidly more self-assured region. At the same time, we aim to make our music ever more audible and valuable to the world at large.
