Last week our team traveled to El Salvador to kick off our new program, Soy Música (I Am Music). Our trainers, Danny Felsteiner Mekori and Pepe Garcia, led the first training week with 37 Salvadoran musicians and teachers, who are learning to apply our methodologies to use music for inclusion and social harmony.
The program is in partnership with UNICEF and the Ministry of Education of El Salvador, both have invited Musicians without Borders to run our yearlong Community Music Leadership Training.
We are training 37 music teachers and community facilitators, reaching thousands of children in schools and communities across the country.
Our trainees practiced their new skills already this first week, visiting a school where 200 children enjoyed music making for 2 hours.
