Music is the most educational, useful, cheapest tool for early childhood development and language development. Preschoolers don’t learn from textbooks, they learn through play, movement, exploration, singing and dancing. Future Roots Project recognizes the importance of music in the classroom and believes that all children deserve a high quality education that not only values the arts but also includes them daily in the curriculum.
Music opens up the minds of children in extraordinary ways as it increases the communication between both sides of brain and makes them work together. Music Education develops complex problem solving skills and raises the cognitive capacity of children. Each year Future Roots Project trains over 200 teachers, equipping them with 50+ songs to use in their classrooms. In addition to monthly trainings, we visit the teachers at school and help them implement what they have learned. These songs have been wildly popular for both teachers and students. It has been a very rewarding experience to see the transformations in the schools that are now filled with music, singing and learning!It is worth noting that Future Roots Project has received an exceptional amount of support from local musicians in Minneapolis and we are forever grateful for everyone who donates their talent and time to play at our annual fundraisers! We feel very fortunate to be able to share the gift of music with schools in Nicaragua.
