Last week, I had the privilege to coordinate a music camp for young students at my house, with the help of my friends. On Monday morning at 9:30am, 9 mini musicians arrived - five pianists, three violinists, and one cellist. The morning flew by as we proceeded to fill the time with private music lessons, duet time, composer stories, snacks, and games. The first day was slightly hectic as none of us were entirely sure of what we were doing, but with each passing day, it became easier to manage the students and transition from one activity to the next.
Overall, the camp was a success! The students each told me they had thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the camp, and we raised $1200 through camp tuition. All of it will go to Sahaya International: $1000 for constructing a house and the remaining $200 for 2 education scholarships.
