Rogelio Finds Confidence & Tenacity Through Music

ETM-LA Student Alumnus Rogelio
ETM-LA Student Alumnus Rogelio

Music has had a huge impact on Student Alumnus Rogelio by "motivating him to accomplish anything in [his] mind," says his mother, Fabiola. "Before, he would give up easily...because he was afraid of failure. The biggest change in him has been his tenacity to overcome any challenge," Fabiola shares.  

These last several years, Rogelio received weekly music instruction and participated in the strings program at ETM-LA partner Providencia School. Through music, he found something that sparked his interest. Now at Luther Middle School, he is continuing his musical learning which has helped him to "express without words," remarks his mother. “Now that he’s part of [music class], we’ve seen how he is interested in reading music and learning any song genre by ear. At home he’s always trying to find new music to play along with and to improve himself.” 

Music provides Rogelio with inner confidence. Rogelio shared, “I like going to music class and playing my instrument because I get to learn more about music alongside other people who share the same interest as me. It makes me feel confident in myself knowing that I know how to play an instrument.” Fabiola agreed that "when Rogelio is playing the violin he's a self-confident boy. The violin takes away that shyness in him."

Thanks to supporters like you, Rogelio was able to find his passion and an outlet through music.  

His mother believes in the importance of music education for all children. "[Music] will give them a chance to change and better themselves." Long-standing research shows that music and arts education improves not only social-emotional health, but also school engagement and motivation for learning. Rogelio reflected, “If all the subjects are challenging you, you can always turn to music.”

Thank you to those who have generously given to help provide key music education services to disadvantaged schools and to students like Rogelio.
