Summary

Your support will help 36,000 children in 70 under-resourced New York City schools receive music education as part of their school day during 2019-20. ETM's NYC Partner School Program provides EVERY student with access to music class as a core subject. When children learn music, they gain self-esteem and strengthen their cognitive skills and achievement, becoming better thinkers and lifelong learners. ETM works closely with school principals to create sustainable programs.

Challenge

Access to music education is often influenced by socioeconomic status, district lines and lotteries. In New York City, 55% of city schools do not have a full-time certified music teacher (2017-18 NYC Arts in School Report). Many children in at-risk populations have been left with either no music instruction at all, or access only to short-term or isolated experiences. ETM partners with under-resourced schools to ensure every child receives music education.

Solution

ETM's program provides access to music as a core subject for all partner school children. We hire music teachers; we train and support these teachers so they can be eligible to be hired by schools as part of a long-term plan for sustaining programs. We provide curriculum, musical instruments, and instructional materials. We conduct outreach to each school community to build understanding and advocacy for music education. We collaborate with principals on management and strategic planning.

Long-Term Impact

By providing access to quality music education to 36,000 students and building support within school communities, this program will: provide students with musical skills and knowledge; support growth in students' self-confidence and self-esteem; support improved achievement in other academic areas; support community involvement; and increase the capacity of partner schools to sustain music programs on their own so that the benefits of music education can continue beyond the life of ETM.
