There could be a great opportunity to reach out to the community here and see if there are any community figures or elders, or even older students, with knowledge of the community’s musical traditions that you could be bringing in to your classes, to help teach local traditions to the kids, and teach you along the way as well. I love that you want to connect with their culture, but if I were in your shoes I would definitely try to find ways to bring your own expertise and experience in as well. Don’t be afraid to share what you love about music and what you know how to teach well!
