MMEX 2020 USA-Jamaica Music Education Exchange
Educators and students in the USA and Jamaica build bridges with music.
The 2020 March for Music Education Exchange, co-sponsored by Jamaica Nice started in Kingston, Jamaica with the arrival of three USA-based music educators. Two weeks later, two Alpha Institute music students and their instructor were visiting Berklee College of Music, Canton High School and the University of Rhode Island during the day and performing music showcases at night.
In the end, the experience was about a lot more than music.
"The experience pushed me to be more competitive because I am not the only one doing this, it just tell me to get up and not to get lazy or complacent. I believe that this opportunity should be provided to every musician who wants to take their career to another level." - Rohan Mitchell, Alpha Institute (Jamaica) music student
