Community Music Leaders

Community Music Leaders are trained to use music as a tool for social change, community building, and healing. Since 2012, international and Rwandan trainers have facilitated the training of 80 Community Music Leaders in Rwanda, each receiving 116 hours of professional training.

Training focuses on musical skills; leadership skills; and introductions to principles of non-violence, non-judgment, inclusion and participation that inform Musicians Without Borders’ working ethos. Rwandan trainers provide on-going support, and ensure local culture is embedded in the training.
