Students at the Kabul Blind School celebrate their first music lesson. I couldn't resist snapping this photo in the middle of our lesson as their enthusiasm was as great as any I've ever seen. At first, the reaction of the school administration and religious teachers was guarded and extremely suspicious about teaching music to these students, but after witnessing a few lessons and realizing that the lessons benefited the students, they soon encouraged their continuation. (Extra note: the student on the right, has a voice strikingly similar to Stevie Wonder!!)
