Every family expects their child to have some artistic talent, but when the child wants to make that art his passion, they are advised to pay more attention to studies," he said.
Speaking further, the Deputy Chief Minister said that under this project, a bus has been transformed into a moving music class, a high-quality music recording studio and a performing stage.
"This Mobile Music Bus will reach 5,000 children from government schools as well as low-income communities in Delhi to enable learning through music through regular workshops conducted by trained facilitators. The Music Bus Studio is also equipped with a Smart TV, which will be used to share digital educational music videos on issues related to social-emotional health and well-being,'' he added.
