In classrooms and school auditoriums across New York City, students welcomed the New Year with tremendous joy and gratitude. Here are some highlights showing the impact ETM is making on the lives of students, our partner schools, and the communities in which they are located.

ETM is proud to report that we added over two dozen new schools to our New York School Partnership Program, including P.S. 958, an inclusive school in Sunset Park that serves 70 special needs students. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring to these students the power of music education.

In February, ETM Teacher Nune Melikyan led wonderful school-wide concerts at P.S. 340 in the Bronx in celebration of Black History Month. Elementary students in kindergarten through 5th grade delighted their school community with beautiful renditions of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” “This Time in Africa,” “Stand by Me,” and more.

Also in February, high school students from ETM partner school The Laboratory School of Finance & Technology participated in a special Career Day at the headquarters of Warner Music Group. The immersive day began with the students delighting Warner staff with a bucket drumming performance, a beautiful duet, and pieces performed by the group’s instrumental ensemble. An engaging series of panel discussions with Warner senior leaders and representatives followed, providing students with the opportunity to gain knowledge about various aspects of the music industry and the associated career tracks that may be of interest to them

Professional development continued in March as our teachers ready for spring concerts. Our team of expert educators and Programs staff guided ETM teachers in deep listening exercises, recommended sight-reading and vocal warm-ups, and a diverse set of choral repertoire for all grade levels. We are excited for our teachers to implement these lessons in their classrooms across NYC as we head into the spring season.

We thank our incredible donors and funders for your support throughout the year and we look forward to sharing more updates soon!
