For over five years, Guido Bissig has graced the music halls of Institut Montana with his passion for teaching and music. “I try to explain the important basic concepts of music theory and music history to students because it’s important that they know these skills. Then, of course, it requires plenty of work and practice time too”, says Guido with a big smile.
He’s been a teacher for about 20 years and was inspired to teach after having various music teachers who inspired him to continue with his love for music and playing instruments and wanted to instill the same to his own students.
On the 90th anniversary of Institut Montana, he created the school song “Montana – My Place to Grow” which went along side the school motto.
It is very exciting to work at Institut Montana with our international youths, they all have different backgrounds, especially when it comes to music. That aside, even when music is often times regarded as a “secondary subject,” I notice that many of my students are enthusiastic about our music projects and learning an instrument.
