For the second year, Education Through Music and The Country Music Association Foundation have partnered to bring music education to New York City. With the renewed partnership, ETM was the beneficiary of a $125K grant, which was accepted by ETM Executive Director Katherine Damkohler on Wednesday, September 3rd at the CMA Awards Nominees Press Conference in NYC. The grant, which will provide the funding to expand and enhance music education programs throughout NYC, was presented by CMA CEO Sarah Trahern, along with country music stars Darius Rucker and Little Big Town.

As part of the continued partnership between Education Through Music and The Country Music Association Foundation, ETM teachers were invited to attend the famous CMA Songwriter's Series at Joe's Pub in New York City. The workshop, featuring legendary songwriter Bob DiPiero, provided the teachers with invaluable knowledge and insight into the process of music making, while also providing a wide array transferable skills for the classroom.

Education Through Music announces a new partnership with Mozarts and Einsteins, a preschool of integrated arts and academics, located in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Mozarts and Einsteins, a private pre-school is supporting ETM to help provide music education for all children. ETM partners with inner-city schools to provide music education as a core subject.

Cords for Music and Education Through Music are excited to announce the launch of Cords for Music and the Pick Cord. Cords for music is a socially motivated jewelry line that gives part of the proceeds from each product sold to funding music education initiatives. Inspired by the magic of Rock and Roll, the Pick Cord is shaped like a guitar pick and attached to the wrist using waxed cotton cord. It is made in America of sterling silver, and retails for $75, with $10 from each sale going to Education Through Music.

For the fifth year in a row, Education Through Music has secured a limited number of spots in the 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.
