How wonderful to bring culture to the small town of Dudley. Your team did a fabulous job teaching the children and the staff about the instruments and the countries they come from. Your program, From Trinidad to Timbukto” has inspired att projects and biogs on teacher websites. Parents have called and asked about the program and many of the students have approached their teachers to ask where the gallery is located.

Immediately the children recognized the instrument thanks to your presentation!
