my experience with the school
My experience with the school

Summer of 2011 – I was in India, and found an opportunity to volunteer at the school, and serve the visually impaired.

I was warmly embraced by Sister Margaret, and was assigned to help teach music to these children. Jessie madam was the music teacher in charge, and was extremely supportive of me.

I started to teach flute, harmonica (mouth organ), and keyboard.

I soon realized that the children had tremendous potential and were extremely fast learners; we were breezing through lessons, song after song.

The sky was the limit for these “Children of God,” as my mom called them. They had a “Sixth Sense,” if you will, which made up for their impairment.

My Experience Continued…
  • The children had tremendous focus and grasping power, and most of the times, I was in awe of them. They showed tremendous discipline, and their eagerness to learn was abundant.
  • I soon began to develop special bonds with my Little Flower Friends.
  • Before long, I became their “Abhinav Anna!”
  • Sister Margaret used to come into the room and join us in session. She loved listening to the new tunes the children belted out.
  • I look forward to working with and teaching more music to my friends in the summer of 2013.
