We have developed this proposal in view of a recent decision by the Brazilian government (Act 13.278) of implementing Music Education (Music
Appreciation) in grade schools throughout all its commonwealth.  It is our main goal to promote comparable real-life situations as part of
teacher’s training, as they face this new challenge. We believe PBL is capable of providing the necessary tools to effectively train new these new teachers.
