Music is present in all of the cultures. It has its own identity and it has an important role in all of the communities where it is manifested. It is considered a form of art and way to express feelings, and usually it is practiced collectively.
In the Projeto Guri, each new participant chooses to learn a musical instrument, choir singing, or both of the courses. The most varied musical genres are studied in the classes, from popular songs to folk music to erudite compositions. Besides the study of music being a challenge, it is also constructive and pleasant, and the variety of songs keeps the cultural roots of the community alive.
In the Guri centers, the activities are always done in a group, which stimulates the participation of the students. They are all part of a team that goes through the same challenges. In the musical presentations done in public, for small, medium or large events, the result is the product of each one’s dedication.
For the young people, to participate of the Projeto Guri means to unite learning with satisfaction.
The teaching of music is, at last, the tool chosen by the Projeto Guri to fulfill its mission of social and cultural inclusion.
