An education method with social impact
The purpose of Musethica is to give musicians an intense humanistic and musical experience, strongly developing their listening skills and their performing skills. At the same time, Musethica provides free concerts to excluded groups in society.
What started as a simple idea by the founders Avri Levitan and Carmen Marcuello in 2012, has sparked interest from musicians and institutions all around the world. As a result, Musethica organizes hundreds of concerts yearly to schools of special education, elderly homes, women shelters, prisons, refugee homes, and other institutions where the demand for concerts has been proven to be endless.
Behind this growing organization stands a group of wonderful, dedicated people, from different professional backgrounds, putting in their time and energy to make it all happen. You can get to know the local teams and their activities in the pages of the different countries.
Musethica thrives through its many collaborations with social, educational and health institutions, music academies, festivals, concert halls, and others.
Musethicas method can be implemented in different ways, most commonly as sessions, international festivals, and university programs.
A minimum of 85 percent of Musethicas concerts take place outside traditional concert venues and are free of charge.
Musethicas vision is to become an integrated program in music academies and universities worldwide.
