I worked for ETM for about seven years and thoroughly enjoyed my experience both as a teaching artist and then as a program coordinator and mentor to younger teachers. I know this has been a life-changing organization because former students have found me online through social media and personally told me how much of a difference the experience of having music in their lives had. One of them even became a guitarist because he was inspired by something that happened during my tenure at his school. The organization is well run, organized, and seeks to better the overall experience of the students and the teaching artists in the classroom. Having worked with many different organizations and educators, they are one of the few that truly addresses the classroom management issues facing new teachers and is always there to help and offer aide and resources to the teaching artists so that they can best server their population. Additionally, I feel that their commitment to excellence is far and above any arts organization I have experienced. They are always asking what they can do to be a better organization and always willing to stretch and mold with the changing medias and interests of their students. I do and would highly recommend this organization to any musician looking to get into the educational side of the musician's world.
