El Musican Project is an initiative that looks at revolutionizing the city through music. Our first objective, Quito. The first stage will create a music school in which, for every 5 students that enroll in class, 1 out of school child will be sponsored in music learning. The idea behind this is to give children not only a safe and fun skill, but a tool that can provide them with future opportunities in the world of arts and culture.
Besides, music has been shown to be an ideal mechanism to promote mental ability development, motor skills improvement, reasoning, etc. This is why, in our second stage, El Musican Project will implement a mathematics school that uses music as a learning tool in order to level out of school children so that they can be reinserted into the public school system.
The task at hand is big. According to UNICEF and INEC (2013), there are approximately 88 thousand children and teenagers between 5 and 14 years' old that don't exercise their right to a proper education and over 360,000 are working. This presents a major obstacle in integral development for this age group. El Musican Project offers a safe space where kids of different backgrounds can learn, develop positively and be surrounded by music and proper mentorship.
Who knows, maybe the next Gustavo Cerati, Adele or Jimmy Hendrix is right now walking our streets!
