Secondary students at Thau School in Sant Cugat have conducted their research projects on this new educational method, which has sparked Van Zandt's curiosity.

The initiative uses music as an educational tool to create alternative and multicultural programs in subjects like history, arts, music, and science. 

The study plan is offered to students and teachers completely free, aiming to complement the regular curriculum and enhance student engagement.
