Great support for the music school in 2022
Since the end of April, Dominik Brühwiler (team member of Music Road Rwanda and assistant to the music school management) is in Kigali to support the music school on site. His stay is planned until March 2023. This is extremely promising. We are firmly convinced that the music school will benefit enormously both in the management area and musically. Dominik Brühwiler covers his costs through his own private donations.
Current cooperation with our local partner (the Presbyterian Church of Rwanda EPR)
With our local partner, Dominik Brühwiler was able to implement the Rwandan contracts and salary structure for the music teachers in the last quarter of 2022. The goal is to be able to anchor the music school completely in Rwanda in the future. We have an ideal partner for this in the EPR. The music teachers will get an official employment with the Presbyterian Church, including health insurance. Both are of great importance in Rwanda.
In addition, a further advertising campaign was started with our partner to attract new students to the music school. The campaign runs until mid-January 2023.
Dominik Brühwiler also gives individual piano lessons, chamber music and ear training to various teachers of our Rwandan team.
At Christmas, Eugene Turikumana, violin teacher at the music school, together with Dominik Brühwiler participated in the traditional Christmas service at the big hall of EPR. They enriched this festive occasion with classical music and well-known Christmas carols. Both found favor with the audience.
Installation of the sponsored Maeari grand piano in the church Kiyovu/Kigali
We are very happy about the installation of the sponsored Maeari grand piano in the big hall of the Presbyterian Church in Kiyovu. Together with the technicians of the church the grand piano could be installed.
We sincerely thank Marcus Hübner from Pianohaus Hübner in Trier (D) for his so generous donation to Music Road Rwanda! Piano teacher Bonani Djuma is enjoying the regular piano lessons on the grand piano. We are looking forward to many musical moments with this great instrument.
