As we enter another month of remote and hybrid learning, we wanted to update you on some good news.
In the Fall and Spring semesters for the 2020-21 school year, Education Through Music was able to partern with 51 partner schools - including 31 elementary, 19 middle, and 1 high school. In total, ETM egnages 18,000 students in weekly music lessons. That is over 200,000 hours of music education provided to children each semester. Considering the circumstances surrounding this year, we have a lot to be thankful for and proud of.
This year presented extraordinary challenges for our schools, including dramatic reductions in school budgets, funding cuts for arts education by the city, and unprecedented logistical challenges. As so many of our partner principals report - without ETM, there would be no music at my school during the pandemic.
In addition to keeping music alive, our focus this year has been on equipping our teachers with the resources to teach remotely. Thanks to a generous donor, each ETM teacher was equipped with high quality headphones, microphones, and personal laptops to be able to record and stream their music lessons to their students. Teachers were also provided new software and training to be able to create dynamic and engaging music lessons.
Thank you for providing thousands of students with the access to a complete education that includes music.
