Education Through Music introduces a new education incentive program for its teachers returning to New York City classrooms this semester. Participating teachers will receive up to $5,000 tuition reimbursement annually to further their professional credentials. Full-time ETM teachers are eligible to participate in the tuition assistance program, which is equivalent to a full semester’s tuition for those teachers enrolled in a New York State graduate school program.
For the seventh year in a row, Education Through Music has secured a limited number of spots in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon, through the Community-Level Charity Program. We encourage our supporters to participate or invite family and friends to run with Team ETM. This is an amazing opportunity to raise money for education while sharing a life-changing, powerful experience with thousands of other runners from across the globe.

Education Through Music has partnered with several schools throughout the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island for the 2015-2016 school year to bring its comprehensive music education program to every student at these schools. With these new partnerships, ETM has increased its roster of partner schools to 48 schools serving nearly 27,000 students.
Education Through Music was front row at Keith Urban’s concert on the TODAY Show on August 7, 2015. ETM was excited to support Urban as the Country Music Association’s first artist ambassador for their recently announced, “Music Education Matters” initiative. We also wanted to personally thank Urban for donating 20 “Keith Urban” guitars to ETM.
