Challenge

Over 4,000 disadvantaged children in 9 NYC schools (located in the Bronx, Staten Island, Queens, and Brooklyn) will be receiving music education for the first time during 2016-17, but their schools do not have any materials and supplies for the new music classroom. We are also identifying new partner schools for 2016-17, and they will also have brand-new needs.

Solution

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.

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 improved 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 over 4,000 students.
