New etm:the Podcast episode!
What does it take to build a successful music program?

To kick off the 2023-2024 school year, we explore this question with guests Elizabeth Guglielmo and Barbara Murray, current and former Directors of Music at the NYC Department of Education, respectively. Covering nearly two decades of leadership in the position (plus many more as music teachers and administrators), Elizabeth and Barbara join us for a spirited discussion about what makes for great music programs, the role of the Director of Music as the “eyes and ears of the music education community,” and what organizations like ETM bring to the effort of providing high-quality music instruction to all students.
