In February, eight representatives of El Sistema Sweden visited El Sistema Kenya (ESK) in Nairobi to assist ESK’s new program (its second site) in the Juja slum. The representatives brought donated violins, flutes, trumpets and clarinets, led workshops and master classes for the children, and taught teachers how to use Sibelius notation software to teach music theory and composition, and to record/notate Kenyan folk tunes for classical instruments. Children and teachers greatly enjoyed the visit and hope to have more collaboration with El Sistema Sweden in the future.
