Excellence Born from Training Talents

Children begin to dream at an early age, and many of them won’t be able to fulfill it. Thus, it is important to cultivate this dream and help them achieve it. Education plays a vital role in making their dream a reality.

Education is what prepares the children for the future, in some cases, their careers. In school, teachers become second parents as well as mentors. However, it is understood that the early education of the children always starts at home where parents would teach them some basic knowledge and help them discover their talents.

Talent Discovery in Education

Children start to become curious at an early age, and they look at things in different perspective. In fact, parents usually discover and help develop their children’s talents during their childhood years, and the school would then polish this talent. One good example is our very own Rudolf P. Golez who was taught to play the piano when he was only four years old. He was able to develop his talent to the fullest such that he is now a renowned musician who has performed in several concerts here in the Philippines and abroad.

Upon discovering his passion in music, he then decided to excel at it by going to Juilliard School and studying under Seymour Lipkin. Having one of the best musicians as his teacher and mentor, he became a recognized artist in the whole country.

Talents alone won’t help improve your passion. In fact, Rudolf P. Golez even went to a prestigious school for him to become who he is now, a genius world-class pianist.

Talent, Education, and Success

Rudolf P. Golez, with all the things he was taught by his parents and mentors, tried to test his skills during the First ASEAN Chopin International Piano Competition. He became the sole prize winner among all the contestants who joined.

His success comes from the root of where he got his talent and passion, his mother. He now serves as the Vice-President for External and Cultural Affairs at one of the most prestigious universities in his hometown.

He even organizes big musical and cultural events in the city as he wants to bring theatrical arts in his own locality.

If you are in the Philippines and want to avail our music courses under the deanship of non other than Rudolf P. Golez himself, or to pursue higher education, enrol at Liceo U. Visit us now at http://www.liceo.edu.ph/.

Music and the City’s Musical Prowess

The human race has been appreciating the value of music since time immemorial. When the ancient men discovered sounds, they started producing them by using bones, bows, and their own body parts. They even tried to combine all of those which resulted in discovering music which then became part of their lives. They used music for entertainment, rituals, and rites of passage. As civilization develops, man’s love for music grows even deeper. In fact today, we use music very often, and we really love it!

What Makes Classical Music Different

Modern music focuses more on the lyrics than what mystery one feels in listening to classical music. They are rooted in excellence and inquiry leading us to feel the message conveyed by the songs. The beauty of music comes from the depths of the thoughts and the emotions of the composer, then the perfect delivery of the singer. Beethoven, for an example, was a classical composer and pianist but it remains to be a mystery how a deaf person created great music that ended the classical era.

Importance of Music Schools

Music can be self-taught, but it’s difficult to learn it alone; it is important to have a mentor who prioritizes in helping you develop your talent. Just like Mr. Rudolf P. Golez and other classical artists whose career in music started with their interest in learning it and then, excel in the field later. They were able to achieve their dream through the help of highly qualified mentors in the school where they enrolled.

Indeed, music schools can help much in developing your talent and skills in order to become a great musician as they will provide you with highly qualified professors as well as the right environment that makes learning much easier and more fun.

Cagayan de Oro’s Own Classical Musician

Here in Mindanao, we have our own Mozart, Mr. Rudolf P. Golez. He was a protégé of the iconic pianist and conductor Seymour Lipkin. He had many successes in concerts and contests around the globe and is a great representation of Mindanao’s talent. He was also recognized by the Cultural Center of the Philippines as a soloist which is a great success for a local artist. A genius in his field, he continues to serve the city as an educator in music and arts.

If you want to learn more about Mr. Rudolf P. Golez and our course in music here in the Philippines, enrol at Liceo U. We offer a bachelor’s and a graduate school Degree in Music. For more info about our graduate studies, visit us at http://www.liceo.edu.ph/academics/graduate-studies/.

Do You Have What It Takes to Become a Medical Technologist?

The medical field is always appealing to young people; in fact, children usually portray the role of being a doctor, a nurse, an X-ray technician, or a medical technologist during their role-playing games. They are obviously attracted to wearing white and bringing a stethoscope, sphygmomanometer, or any medical equipment that they often see at their physician’s clinic during their regular visit. This can be one of the reasons why many of them want to become a medical practitioner when they grow up.

If you are one of those who dream to be in a medical school one day, then, pick your best choice as there are many options for you. For example, if you are really interested in the details of a person’s medical condition and you can work in a laboratory, then you are fit to become a medical technologist. This is especially true if you possess the following qualities:

  • You’re Interested in Science, and You Love Details.

It is a fact that your interest about Chemistry, Biology, Physiology, and other related disciplines is necessary in order to pursue a career in medical laboratory technology. You must be excited in trying to examine blood samples or specimens in order to get the best results. You should also be meticulous with details as your tasks include coding, compiling, categorizing, and calculating findings to ensure that the doctors can give an accurate diagnosis.

  • You Love a Quiet Environment

Remember that a medical laboratory technologist’s normal working day is mostly confined to the four walls of a laboratory room working alone or with few colleagues. In this type of profession, you won’t be interacting with patients the way other medical practitioners do, but if you love silence and deep analysis, then, this profession is just right for you.

  • You Don’t Get Bored Easily

As a medical technologist, you’ll be doing the same things everyday such as testing samples of blood, urine, specimens and the like. If you are not passionate about what you do, it is very likely that you’ll get bored with your repetitive tasks. However, if you love your job and that you are guided by the principle of helping a sick person get cured, then being in the laboratory the whole day won’t really matter.

  • You Are Compassionate, and You Act Professionally

Your work involves a lot of risks as well as of confidentiality since you are dealing with different specimens or samples taken from different people who are ill or who might be ill. Aside from taking the primary measures to protect yourself from possible infections, especially for contagious diseases, you should also ensure to keep your findings strictly confidential. They should only be revealed to the persons concerned. Thus, you need to have a heart that feels for others; don’t broadcast anybody’s laboratory test results as it is not intended for everybody’s knowledge. By keeping them to yourself, you are actually protecting the credibility of the person concerned. You are also able to show that you are a genuine professional.

If you have already decided to become a medical technologist, then choose the right school where you can take the course. In Cagayan de Oro city, you can enrol at Liceo U; it is one of the best universities that offers a Medical technology course in the Philippines. For more details, visit their website at
