TOOLS FOR SOCIAL INTEGRATION

A soil to grow on

Musical education provides much more than a space to improve our children’s learning skills and it can be a powerful tool itself.

Music promotes the development of all the tools a kid needs to face education. We know engaging in musical activities also strengths emotional and cultural links with each-other and that’s what makes society go forward.

But musical education provides much more than a space to improve our children’s learning skills and it can be a powerful tool itself. Learning new ways to express culture or new forms of language and manual skills can open the door to a whole new world for young students.

As Ferrer-Salat Foundation we thrive to work so that no kid misses out on these key experiences, so we joined in on the project with Conservatori del Liceu and Fundació de Escuelas Parroquiales del Arzobispado de Barcelona to create the Primaria Musical Program, a project targeted to use music as a weapon to fight inequality in Barcelona.

Music,

a powerful tool

The program starts in 2016 with three primary schools from Barcelona: Bon Pastor, Santíssima Trinitat and Escola l’Esperança.

In collaboration with Conservatori del Liceu, this project brings professional musicians to these schools so they can teach music theory, interpretation, group music and many more so that the kids in these neighborhoods get a chance to experience all kinds of musical practice. Besides all that, we’ve created special scholarships for those students that show talent and interest in furthering their musical studies.

At first, the program only targeted st and 2ns years of primary school, but we have expanded every year reaching our goal of targeting all primary school years this 2021.
