UT professor, graduate student teach music to Haitian students

Over Spring Break, associate professor Hillary Herndon and graduate student Emily Zaita went to Cange, Haiti, to teach children how to play music. The trip was based on the Holy Trinity Church summer music program, in which volunteers go to Cange and bring donated instruments to the children to teach over the summer. Herndon and Zaita decided to bring that joy to the children during the spring, and were overwhelmed with joy and astonishment by how much the students appreciated the art in music.
