Summary

Music builds a sense of belonging, discipline, confidence, creativity, movement skills, cooperativeness and extends the world of possibilities for gifted students. But despite this almost universal interest, our primary schools were not allowed to mentor these wonderful talents. Things have changed and we finally have new curriculum which has allowed us to mentor these wonderful talents and empower the needy to bring a lasting and positive change in the lives.

Challenge

Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument. But despite this almost universal interest, our primary schools have had no opportunity to mentor these wonderful talents. This has caused a big problem to those students who are not good in academics but are talented in music. It is not easy for them to make it in life as their talents were killed. They train when they are older which end up wasting most of their time in life.

Solution

With encouragement from teachers and parents, these students can build confidence and develop better communication which can help in their studies. Music is the fabric of our society and can shape abilities and character. With this program, we are sure our students can less likely to abuse substances over their lifetime and this education can greatly contribute to their intellectual development. This program will help them to have higher self esteem and will be better at coping with anxiety

Long-Term Impact

Investing in creative education can prepare students for the 21st century workforce. We know that new economy has created more artistic careers, and these jobs may grow faster than others in the future. This will be an ideal opening for our students because they will have all it takes to be employed or become self employed. Since our mission is to bring lasting and positive change in their lives of the needy, I believe this program has a potential long term impact.
