"Being involved with ETM has been an incredible experience for me. As a young professional living in NYC it's easy for me to get buried in work - the ETM meetings are a constant reminder to pick my head up and think about the people who live in the city around me and have no access to music and arts education."
-Dan Zaccagnino, President, ETM Associates

"ETM has been changing students' lives both in the city and across the nation by bringing music education to children in need. Being a member of the Associates Steering Committee has been such a meaningful experience both personally and professionally."
