Music education makes a difference. Each year, ETM helps thousands of children to learn skills, gain self-esteem and become excited about school. But for the long term, we are helping our partner schools establish strategic plans to hire their own music teachers and sustain music education beyond the existence of ETM.
The program evaluation for the 2013-14 school year provides evidence that ETM has continued to support students’ academic skills and achievement, and enhance their general development and school engagement. The findings also indicate that ETM continues to provide a quality music program. Overall, ETM engages the support of the overall school community, including parents of ETM students.
