Summary

This project will provide instruments, materials and supplies so that 5,000 inner-city children in NYC can participate in music-making within an engaging classroom environment. In 2014-15, ETM is launching new programs at 12 inner-city schools in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. These kids will be attending music class for the first time, and it is vital that they have access to materials and instruments to experience the benefits of music education such as creativity and innovative thinking.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

5,000 disadvantaged children in 12 NYC schools (located in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens) will be receiving music education for the first time during 2014-15, but their schools do not have any materials and supplies for the new music classroom. We are also identifying new partner schools for 2015-16, and they will have brand-new needs.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will support the purchase of instruments and educational materials for first-year partner schools. Needed instruments include xylophones, drums, and clarinet reeds. Based on success at other ETM partners, we want to outfit the music classroom with a wide variety of instruments to help students remain focused and engaged, with instrument parts so that all are working instruments to help students apply musical skills, and with crucial musical accompaniment.

Potential Long Term Impact

With these instruments and supplies, the music teachers can create a learning-friendly environment for these students, and provide instruction that will support learning in music, critical thinking, and general development like self-esteem and motivation. Your support will give teachers the tools to create engaging lessons and make the new music program an unforgettable experience for 5,000 students.
