Our first rehearsal!

Our first rehearsal! It is amazing to see how excited these children are to create music. Somehow we managed to get through the whole lesson plan in spite of our class speaking 7 different languages - Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish, Russian, Pashto, English, and German - with no shared tongue. The best common denominators: music & gesture.

Big thank you to the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz for donating a classroom to us. Especially big thank you to Miryam Stephan for helping us organize every step along the way with this wonderful group of kids.
