2015-2016 Annual Report

Dear Friends,

Fiscal year 2015-2016 was an exciting year at Education Through Music.  Our program saw tremendous progress as we expanded to serve more students and more schools than ever before. As you scroll through this page and read about the many highlights from the past year, we want to take this time to thank the numerous individuals and donors who have supported us.

We are also proud of the fact that regardless of the changing education landscape, we remain singularly focused on our mission of providing music education as a catalyst to transform students’ lives.  Music is unlocking the potential of these students and giving them the tools they need to become life-long learners and achieve greater success in life.

Our Year in Review

Our mission is to partner with inner-city schools to provide music as a core subject for all children, and utilize music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school and self-confidence.

Why Music Matters

ETM's comprehensive and sequential music education program positively affects student learning at longtime partner schools. Students report that music class helped them focus better, feel better about themselves and feel excited about the future.

Empowering Teachers

Investing in our teachers is central to our success. We provide our teachers with the support and career advancement they need to reach their full potential.
