We recently had the wonderful opportunity to invite a team from the Music Therapy Association of Ghana to come to the school and lead a music workshop with our children. Joining us was the Director, Mawurami, and three interns from Queen's University in Charlotte, NC, USA.
They spent a week with us, working with our students as they learned to sing, play the recorder, percussion, guitar, and keyboard. The interns were impressed by the children's determination to learn new skills and the speed at which they learned their harmonies and the words to songs. Everywhere that week, small groups were practicing in every corner of the school!
On the final morning, we organized a small concert where all the chidlren demonstrated what they had learned. Leter, the songs were performed for parents and family members at our End of Term Performance.
The American visitors also treated our students to a professional performance and they were spell-bound as they listened to classical flute, classical guitar, and beautiful singing. What a great experience!
