ETM school M.S. 118 get their instruments!
Thank you for your support, and happy spring!
We're excited to let you know that your donations helped students at ETM school M.S. 118 get their instruments for the first time!
You make this possible, and we're so thankful. ETM Music Teacher Marissa Steele shared, "Many students expressed interest in learning instruments. A lot of them come from families who play instruments, and they just wanted the opportunity to play with their families. I am so glad they have been given the chance."
This year presented extraordinary challenges for our schools, but donations from GlobalGiving make all the difference. Your gifts make an impact and keep music in our schools.
I wanted to share a quote from Penny Swift's recent interview with the Gotham Gazette about the importance of music education. "Our students have faced the trauma of isolation, fear, and, in many cases, grief. Racial inequity remains widespread. And although music programs are vital to a well-rounded education, over half of New York City public schools don't have a full-time music educator on staff. Giving students access to music education is core to my nonprofit's mission and vital to facing these continuing challenges."
Our mission remains clear: To provide access to high-quality music education to every student in New York City.
And you're making this happen! Thank you!
