Music as a practice for Inclusion
On the road to optimizing inclusion, more and more projects are being created that join forces to develop the common good of the community in all its diversity.
The town of Lliçà de Vall, nucleus of the Prosocial Trust Center of the ECO-IN Spain, is included in the CREA project, an example of good operational inclusion practices that has started this new course, promoted and financed by the “Mancomunitat de la Vall of the Tenes”.
The CREA project has started in nine schools in the four municipalities that make up the Commonwealth to advance equal opportunities for all boys and girls.
While the transformative power of music and its benefits in early childhood learning is increasingly demonstrated, many times it may not be affordable for all families. For this reason, the Mancomunitat has bought the instruments and has hired 4 teachers who will join the school year for 45 minutes each week included in the music lessons. At that time, each group will be divided into two: on the one hand they will work on the curriculum of the subject and on the other the extra practice of an instrument.
A total of 1270 boys and girls from first to fourth grade will learn to play the chime, keyboard, drums and ukulele.
Adding learning in music is intended to offer more tools for the comprehensive development of students, increasing their cognitive, communication and psychomotor skills.
The synergies between CREA and ECO-IN contribute to the construction of a positive and inclusive social network in the town and to generate bases for the establishment of the Prosocial Trust Center.
