DEL REAL MUSIC LEARNING CENTER
Samuel is also a music educator, who has been teaching music and bringing a touring performances and music workshops to Chicago public schools, colleges and educational centers thru Urban Gate Ways (1990-1995), International Music Foundation (2003-Present), Del Real Music Center( Present).
At the present moment, Samuel is promoting his own After School Music Program, to public schools and cultural centers targeting the Latino Community, considering a very powerful tool to enrich the Latin American Culture.
The purpose of Mr Del Real’s After School Music Program is to teach children from the early age, the knowledge and basic concepts of music while introducing them to musical instruments such as piano, guitar, bass, percussion and vocalization and voice as a tool to develop the inner ear. In addition students will learn to interact with Latin rhythms like salsa, cumbia, merengue, Caribbean, Latin Jazz and music of Mexico.
I think that if these types of musical instructions are not preserved and promoted our children will loose the cultural focal point that makes Latin American culture so rich and diverse.
