Postponement of the planned training trip from July 2020
Due to the worldwide Covid19 pandemic, Music Road Rwanda has to postpone the educational trip planned for July 2020 regarding the third part of the teachers’ training at the Music School Kigali. At the moment it is not cleared when this will take place. We hope to travel to Kigali again as soon as possible.

Music School Kigali - the current situation
The Music School Kigali had to temporarily suspend its teaching activities. However, the current situation of Covid19 in Rwanda promises a soon reopening of the Music School.
In the meantime, the individual teachers will continue to be taught on their instruments by the respective team members via Skype.
Music Road Rwanda remains in regular contact with its teachers during this crisis and is also supporting them financially in order to cushion the emergency situation caused by the pandemic.

Training Trip January 2020 / Second part of the Teachers’ Training
From January 1 to January 12, 2020, another Training Trip by Music Road Rwanda took place. It included the second part of the training for the music teachers at the Music School in Kigali. The content consisted the training of the teachers in the basics of didactic and methodical principles of teaching and their artistic further education.

Expansion of Teaching Activities at Music School Kigali
Since November 2019 the music teachers at Music School have been teaching outside of the official classrooms in Gikondo / Kigali. They give instrumental lessons to children, teenagers and adults in different parishes and primary schools in Kigali. We are happy about this valuable opportunity to expand our activities as a Music School!

Our Music School grows
Due to the local expansion of the Music School the number of students also increases. Our teachers are currently teaching over 350 students!

New Teachers in the Teaching Team at Music School Kigali
With Emmanuel Nsengimana (piano) and Fabrice Umuhoza (guitar) we were able to win two new motivated musicians as teachers! They joined as well our Teachers’ Training in January 2020. Welcome!

New Team Members for Music Road Rwanda
We are very happy that we were able to win Simon Vander Plaetse (guitar), Tamás Tarjányi (vocals) and Krisztina Tarjányi (Sostenuto) as new team members of Music Road Rwanda. They were all part of the Training Trip in January 2020. Welcome!

Concerts

In Rwanda, there was still no classical chamber music concert cultur in public. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institute in Kigali, we gave two public concerts, both of which were enthusiastically received. One performance took place in the Hotel Serena, the other in the Goethe-Institute’s own auditorium. We plan to continue our cooperation with the Goethe-Institute to give further performances.
