Here is a little glimpse of our “field trips” to different houses around our missionary compound and our musical guests who are generous to let the students see first-hand several musical instruments.
We made our own paper ACCORDIONS so that we could “play along” with Uncle Eric (McLaughlin) as he demonstrated this oh-so-complicated instrument!
Who knew Uncle Michael (Harling) played the FRENCH HORN? This is one he actually found in Burundi, and he is replacing parts and fixing it up!
Uncle Eric showed us why the PIANO is considered a percussion instrument. The kids loved watching the hammers inside.
One time we had a British nurse visit us for a few days, and she just happened to bring her VIOLIN!
They even got to rock out while Liam Banks showed them how cool the ELECTRIC GUITAR is! (video)
So fun for these kids to grow up surrounded by musicians!
