Haiti in Seven Snapshots – As I Experienced It

I took the photos below well before the earthquake and Sontag’s story on clean-up, but here is a look at what I saw around Leogane and Jacmel, Haiti. I spent a month in each of these cities over the summer of 2007, and I taught flute lessons and music theory to students of all ages. This opportunity was possible through a Lawrence University professor committed to helping music education in Haiti. We worked directly with two Haitian music schools / summer camps.
