The bus has been transformed into a mobile music classroom, music studio and a performing stage
Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia launched a mobile music classroom and recording studio on September 18 to help students of government schools pursue their passion for music.
It is India's first 'Mobile Music Bus' showcasing a media-based curriculum, including audio production and film production, to help students build sustainable careers in such fields.
The project is likely to enable 5,000 children and low-income communities in Delhi to learn through music workshops conducted by trained facilitators, according to an official statement.
As part of the project, a bus has already been transformed into a moving music classroom, a high-quality recording studio and a performing stage.
The ‘Mobile Music Bus’ is also equipped with a Smart TV, which will be used to share educational music videos on issues related to social-emotional health and general well-being. Additionally, the studio is armed with sufficient power backup so that it can run continuously for at least 8 hours even without electricity.
"The 'Music Bus' would reach children at large, identify their artistic passion and lay a foundation upon which the School of Specialized Excellence would assist these children in pursuing their passion and achieve the heights of success in that field," the statement said.
The concept of this bus was introduced by Manzil Mystics, a group of children studying in schools run by the state government, and it is funded by SBI Card under CSR.
