According to Paula Sánchez, Music Adviser for the Cuban Ministry for Education, music goes beyond everyday life of human beings, from the most important moments to the most insignificant moments of their life.

She highlighted the way in which the development of the new technologies of communication and information technology has facilitated the interactive process of the citizen with the music of the world.

Currently, it is unquestionably the effect achieved by music in the education of boys and girls. When it is part of the spiritual wealth of people, people achieve a better existence and a transforming and highly creative conception of the world.
