Project Music Road Rwanda

Why "Music Road Rwanda?"

Music is an essential part of every society. Music connects people; it plays an important role in many areas of life, including education, honoring a cultural heritage or traditions, religious practices as well as many others. Very little musical training is available in Rwanda. Few schools offer any form of musical education. Professional training for vocations in music is not available.
