DAY 1 – INTRODUCTION

August 19, 2014

Today was our first full day in Zambia and the start of our programme of teaching. After a rather long, much needed, lie-in following a day of travelling (only one spider attack on Anna so far!) we were driven to the academy. There we were introduced to two of the teachers and the receptionist who, having taken us through the child protection policy and explained our schedule for the next three weeks, kindly treated us to a typical Zambian lunch.

We returned to the Academy in the afternoon where we had our first two pupils aged four and eight. Inevitably the four year old was a bag of fun, although it was a challenge to keep him sat at the piano for any length of time. The eight year old, on the other hand, was extremely determined and attentive, working towards her grade 2 piano. There was another, unexpected pupil, that Anna found herself having to deal with over the course of the afternoon. A challenged recorder player struggling through the first steps. How we are both going to give a masterclass in a couple of days on recorder is unknown…

 

 

After a long day we were introduced to what is affectionately referred to as “The Beast” by everyone who knows it – our vehicle for the next three weeks. Whilst Max was introduced and attempted to tame it, Anna took some pictures of a gorgeous Zambian sunset – hopefully one of many to come.
