About Education Through Music:
Education Through Music (ETM) was founded in 1991 to promote the integration of music into the curricula of disadvantaged schools in order to enhance students' academic performance and general development. ETM forms long-term partnerships with inner-city elementary and middle schools that lack the resources to develop school-wide music programs.
The ETM model currently serves nearly 27,000 students in inner-city schools in New York City, and our model reaches another 10,000 children through the work of our licensed affiliate organization in Los Angeles. ETM's comprehensive, sustainable music education network has garnered the support of corporations, public policy makers and foundations, including The Music Man Foundation, CMA Foundation, The Jerome L.
