MERL (Musique Espérance Région Lyon)
3, rue Sala
MERL offers to 5-to-12-year-old children from "problem neighborhoods" in the suburbs of Lyon an initiation to music and singing with weekly workshops throughout the school year.
MERL not only allows the children to enjoy music but it gives them an opportunity to develop emotionally and express themselves through workshops where they can "make" music.
MERL is developing fast with five weekly music workshops located in Vaulx-en-Velin and Bron-Parilly in the Urban Community of Lyon.
Every week during the school period, about fifty children regularly take part in the workshops.
