Review for Education Through Music, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am passionate about keeping music and the arts in our schools. The positive effects of bringing music to our children and exposing them to the enjoyment of learning how to play and being part of a band are life-long learning experiences. The staff of ETM do an excellent job of providing that experience. They involve the schools and the children by getting their commitment to the music program. You can see the effects by the comments from the parents on the changes in their children which goes beyond the music itself. It gives the students confidence and helps them in their other studies. I am proud to support ETM.

Review for Education Through Music, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Last year, I saw a performance of students at a school in the Bronx. They performed for Joshua Bell. It was an experience I will never forget watching those students play their hearts out for Mr. Bell. They played beautifully and it brought tears to my eyes. No where else would these children had the opportunity to learn and play. I'm sure it's a memory they will never, never forget. I know I won't.

I continue to support this organization and am glad that there are people and organizations who understand the importance of the arts in children's lives and bring opportunities to experience music to schools where music, dance and art programs are cut from the curriculum.

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

Last year, I saw a first-time performance of students at a school in the Bronx. They performed for the violinist, Joshua Bell. He was so warm and gracious. He answered questions and spoke to them about the importance of music and the arts in their lives and encouraged them to continue their music education. It warmed my heart to see these children who were in awe of Mr. Bell and how they played so beautifully for him. This was an opportunity I know they never would have in the regular NYC system.

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

give them more support and promote their exceptional work.
