CU-Boulder music graduates bring music education to the heart of Afghanistan

Aug. 12, 2013

Little more than a decade before Joel Schut arrived for a two-month teaching project at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul, music was banned in the war-torn central Asian nation. From 1992 to 2001, the ruling Taliban prohibited the playing of music and actively destroyed thousands of instruments. An entire generation of Afghans was not allowed to take part in the act of creating music.

If it weren’t for dedicated mentors in her high school, University of Colorado Boulder student Lisa Martin would not have considered a career as a music educator. “It definitely took some persuasion on the part of my directors, and I am forever grateful that they saw in me what I did not see in myself back in the day,” she said.
