Review for ETM-LA Inc., Burbank, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

ETM opened a new window of opportunity for one of my special education students. He was having great difficulty in all subject areas this year and it was beginning to affect his self-esteem. Then one day, during the ETM cello lesson, he began to shine. His posture was perfect, he was hitting all the notes, and he even remembered the names of some of the notes! The teacher commended him on his progress and you could see a visible change in his demeanor. Now when he goes to cello class he holds his head up high and feels proud of himself. What a wonderful gift! Thank you ETM! Liseli Walan, 5th Grade Teacher, Castelar E.S.

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

that my students have been given a new and different opportunity to achieve success.

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

pay the teachers more money so they would have an incentive to stay with the program for several years.

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

their willingness to work with students on many different levels.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely helpful, cheerful, with positive attitudes.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to many more inner-city school children and make a difference in their lives by exposing them to the wonders of music!

Ways to make it better...

we had more instruments in better condition.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

monetary constraints.
