I couldn't get our son away from the computers, video games, xbox you name. Then ETM at Rio Vista Elementary some how changed all that. He now has been taking music guitar classes and studying theory. Now he practices everyday to the point we've purchased a guitar and it has cut his computer gaming time by 70%. The ETm is a God-send, I thought the only way to get him away from gaming would be to put him on punishment. He now has a better sense of direction, discipline and determination to learn music and the guitar. Kudos to ETM

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

At rio vista elementary

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide them the support to keep this program going, without it there is nothing out their for the kids. Except expensive music lessons

Music education improves the way the human brain processes spoken language. Castelar students are privilidged to have ETM here. Each year, my students are motivated to learn and play their instruments (both the cello and the violin). My third grade students look forward to their lessons each week. ETM has helped my students develop discipline and self confidence.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing my students motivated to learn music(both the cello and the violin) and develop self confidence.
