On the morning of Wednesday, February 26th, 2014, I was able to visit Pokie and Derrick of Ntonga Music School. Although it was too early for the younger ones to arrive at Ntonga, I was able to witness Pokie giving a one-on-one bass lesson to an older student of his. When asked how he enjoyed Ntonga, a huge smile spread across the blossoming bass player's face and he said, "I love it. I come here every day, every single day, before work. It is my passion."
I watched as the two of them improvised a duet together, both of them rocking back and forth, lost in the music. What a wonderful way to start off the day indeed.
