Guest Stringers Part I

We thought stringing the piano would be a great opportunity to invite friends and local musicians to get involved with the project. Over the past two days we've welcomed our first guest stringers...

Bonani from Kigali Music School was our first stringer - B5. When we first met Bonani, he was the manager of Kigali Music School. Unfortunately, they've run out of funding and had to close, but Bonani is opening his own music school in Nyamirambo. We'll post more about that soon, but if anyone would like to offer support or instruments we can put you in contact. He also offers piano lessons - check the bottom of our Tuning and Repair section.

Ilse was next up - C6. She was extremely kind in letting children from Autisme Rwanda use her piano last Christmas for a music therapy session with Fabio Tedde.

Our third guest was André, lead guitarist of one of Kigali's best live bands, Viva Beat. They play Pacha Club in Kimironko every Saturday and will have you up dancing all night. We're really honoured that he took time out to come and string C6# for us. Beautiful people!
