She explained that the institution considers music as a power that integrally impacts the human being in their heart, mind and body, according to the thinking of William Soto, executive president of GEAP, and author of the musical program:
"The secret of the impact of music is that this science and art can go directly to the heart or soul of the person, and sow positive or negative values; the process of reflection and analysis can be skipped, that is, music is not reasoned, which makes it a power that more quickly and effectively, more than any other power, reaches the heart, sows the seed in the soul and the message that it transmits will be reflected through actions. The power of music must be used in a responsible and safe way; it is an art for the peace and happiness of the integral human being".
