My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Education Through Music, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I volunteered with ETM in Fall 2010. ETM is dedicated to bringing music education to inner city schools in New York City. The majority of the children ETM serves would not otherwise have access to music education or exposure to some of the great artists, like Joshua Bell, that ETM provides.
ETM spends an enormous amount of time and effort ensuring that the have funding for its programs and that the music programs are of an extremely high caliber. The music teachers employed by ETM are gifted musicians and gifted teachers. ETM ensures that its teachers have access to the latest technology, like SMART boards, and training.
ETM's programs have an positive impact on the children they serve. Music gives the children something to feel positive about during the school day.
