Education Through Music works to enhance children’s academic performance and general development by promoting and providing the sustainable integration of music into the curricula of inner-city schools and schools in disadvantaged areas.
ETM created a comprehensive program that incorporates music into the education of every child, including those with special needs. ETM forms long-term partnerships with elementary schools that lack the resources to develop school-wide music programs. The organization ensures high-quality instruction by hiring qualified teaching artists, providing ongoing training, and performing regular program assessments.
ETM’s first partner school won a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award from the U.S. Department of Education. ETM has since gone on to receive numerous awards and recognitions. In addition to maintaining partnerships with New York City schools, ETM provides advisory services to organizations and schools around the United States, including affiliate organizations in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
