Baithak Foundation believes that music exposure and education are as important as mainstream education.

Since 2016, we are working towards creating a society with equitable music access and learning opportunities for children from the most marginalised communities.

The APT Project

The APT Project makes music a child’s lifelong companion.

We believe that every child should have free access to music. Music is an excellent tool for a child’s development. Consistent music exposure and music practice lead to enhanced learning outcomes, improved emotional response and higher levels of curiosity, engagement and creativity.

The APT Project spans over a minimum of three years at any given space. It begins with intimate concerts which slowly lead to immersive workshops ultimately culminating into weekly music clubs.

Currently, the APT Project is being run at 45 schools/spaces and is positively impacting 4000+ children.

The APT Project is designed in three phases

Phase 1: Anubhav

In Anubhav phase, Baithak presents 6-8 music forms (vocal, instrumental and dance) in a very interactive and immersive setting.

Phase 2: Parichay

In Parichay phase, Baithak organises 6-8 immersive workshops to introduce the basics of music practice to children.

Phase 3: Taleem

In Taleem phase, Baithak organises once a week teaching sessions to teach children any music form of their choice.

The APT Project is layered and engages with the natural curiosity of children. We believe in curating a deep experiences for children that will be etched in their memory. Thus the program design is nuanced and every step is closely assessed for the value it can add to the experience.

The APT Project aims to bring JOY in learning spaces, as we all know how learning is hampered by stress, fear and lack of excitement. The APT Project creates a joyful pocket within schools/community centers which enables holistic learning.

Our partners work with us for minimum 3 year extending into an on-going engagement that goes beyond counting years. We are proud to be learning partners in all the spaces we work with. Educators highly value the program and constantly request us to do more!

Our Impact

The children and the artists enjoy the most! Most artists share stories of deep learning and awareness whereas children speak of pure joy, excitement and fun!

Strengthening the traditional music ecosystem in India.

Through APT Project, Baithak Foundation provides sustainable livelihood and up-skilling opportunities to more than 150 young musicians.

In October 2023 is reached a new milestone. We curated 100 Anubhav sessions for 40 schools/community centers. It would have not been possible without the support of all stakeholders and a fabulous team!
