Education Through Music Launches New Summer Music Academy for New York City Students

Education Through Music (ETM), New York City’s comprehensive music education program serving 14,000 students weekly in 28 inner-city schools throughout the school year, announces a new New York City Summer Music Academy, to keep students engaged in learning throughout the summer break. The Summer Music Academy will be held July 8 – August 1, 2013.

The Summer Music Academy will be held at MS 529 – One World Middle School, 3750 Baychester Avenue in the Bronx. The morning session will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, and the full-day session will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a break for lunch.

Participating students who attend an ETM partner school may attend the Summer Music Academy. Students come from grades 4 through 8 . The Academy ensures general music, musical theater, orchestra and band students continue to develop their skills throughout the summer. ETM utilizes music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school and self-confidence. Music instruction provided by ETM’s teachers supports learning in other key areas, including math and language arts.
