"We, (music educators), are not in the business of transacting content, we are in the business of adding value.’ If you’re in Nairobi, look for the Nairobi Institute of Music and Performing Arts, visit them see what they do, and let’s all together keep adding value through music."

“I think NIMPA has helped me to understand that the growth curve of a student can be very different. Every student has different learning and retaining student abilities so just being able to create a curriculum that can serve the needs of every student as diverse as they are has been an amazing experience! ”
