Spotlight on FEDUJAZZ – Music, Education and Culture in the Dominican Republic

Villa Quintaessencia Sea Horse Ranch

Researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital determined that musical training doesn’t just make kids smarter generally – it boosts executive brain function specifically. Working with a group of 9-to-12-year-old kids who began playing instruments at an average age of 5, the study found enhanced verbal fluency and mental processing speed compared to similar kids who lacked musical training. They also displayed more brain activity in the areas that dictate how efficiently they switch between tasks. The study builds on existing evidence that musical ability correlates to reading and math ability, and the researchers pointed out that executive brain function is a better predictor of overall academic performance.

With vast research that supports the importance of music education for children, FEDUJAZZ, the Dominican Republic Jazz Festivals foundation aims to provide local youth of the Dominican Republic with these important tools and training.

The 18th Dominican Republic Jazz Festival celebrates four nights of free concerts, Nov. 6-9, 2014, in the North Coast towns of Puerto Plata, Sosua and Cabarete. Presented by the Dominican Ministry of Tourism, the renowned, cultural event also conducts year-round musical workshops for youth through FEDUJAZZ, the festivals foundation. Motivating and developing young artistic talent, FEDUJAZZ has partnered with local organizations such as Sosua City Council to further assist in the education of Dominican children, using Jazz as the teaching platform. VIP passes are available for the Jazz Festival, with all proceeds benefitting FEDUJAZZ. Sea Horse Ranch has been a proud sponsor of this event since its inception. For more info, please contact us.
