Pracatum School was born from the sounds of the timbaus, atabaques, berimbaus and agogôs. Its work is fundamental in contributing to the values of a community attempting to take control of its destiny through the appropriation of music and family ties. Utilizing a contextual framework, Pracatum School’s curriculum is based on musical projects developed by Carlinhos Brown in Candeal.
The school’s methodology utilizes cultural references and practices pertinent to the student’s world, motivating them to access and produce new knowledge, reformulating behavior and transforming them through the creation of new habits and the internalization of new values.
Pracatum School holds a physical structure appropriate for teaching music professionally including a recording studio, classrooms, library, rooms for individual and group rehearsals, cafeteria and instruments room.
