The added value of these activities is decisive. The project, as we have repeatedly emphasized, is based, inter alia, on the research and experimentation of new systems for the teaching of Symphonic Music, creative and inclusive methods in the involvement, protagonism and empowerment of young people. For these reasons, we have provided once per year a training opportunity for teachers and educators to enable them, to acquire experimental skills that can then be transferred not only to participating students to the project, but also to all those kids who, while remaining within their school realities, will still benefit from the project's results.
