We are working with an underserved clientele not only material resources but also lack of information and training. Through enrollment in other skills and as a result of the interviews was possible to detect that many would like to learn to play an instrument or be closer to the music.
Explain how your project will address these needs of the community?
We believe that music develops connectivity in learning, such as, cognitive processes helps to process and retain information, as well as assist in solving problems and consequent behavioral equilibrium. So that is one of the typical characteristics of human beings is to enjoy, play, sing, dance and create music.
Music is not just one way in which we connect and create bonds. It literally shapes our brains, it appears that music is also able to enhance our cognitive functions.
So, our goal is to transform the way of life of these people through knowledge, resulting in a new approach at their daily routines improving their actions through the application of new knowledge.
