Teaching Music to Kids in Rural Kenya, Christy Hodder
Christy Hodder, director of the NS Suzuki Ensemble program, in Halifax shares with us
her experiences of bringing supplies to and teaching music to Kids in Rural Kenya.
What started out as a simple friendship with a struggling, out of luck man on the streets of Halifax
turned into a project connecting as friends NS music students to students
