A quick overview of my trip to China, November 2015

By Kerry V. Lee

There has been quite a demand all things from the "West" in China!  I was privileged to be one of those who traveled there, joining Barbara Baldwin as she taught with adults who were interested in working with handicapped children.  It was a pleasure collaborating with her.  We sang in the morning, I introduced the "Uncovering the voice" exercises, and sang some fun songs.  They didn't mind singing in English, though few spoke it.  Then in the afternoon, I worked with the three groups of instruments with them, percussion, wind and string, using the lyre for the string.  We did improvisations, wrote music and learned to play music combining the three instruments.  The people were very grateful and eager to learn.  It was a JOY!
