In late October, ABC Eyewitness News Education Reporter Art McFarland visited ETM partner school P.S. 69 in the Bronx to profile the music program. ETM invited Mr. McFarland to the school to visit with the kindergarten and 4th grade music and math classes, and to speak with teachers, students, and parents about the importance of music in their school, and how, by having access to music, the percentages of students attaining proficiency on standardized Reading and Math tests have increased by up to 35 points in the past two years. The segment aired on October 30.
ETM thanks Principal Alan Cohen, Teaching Artist Eleanor Miller, and the staff, parents and students of P.S. 69, and Mr. McFarland and ABC News.
