2016-2017 Annual Report

With your support, NYC students collectively spent

hours in ETM partner school programs

We will reach more children next year and have a larger, sustainable impact across New York City because of you.

Dear Friends:

We’ve had a tremendous year helping students excel in school and in life with the benefit of a well-rounded education.

In the 2016-2017 fiscal year, ETM unveiled a new, state-of-the-art music technology lab, the fourth such lab in five years and we partnered with eight new schools throughout New York City.

ETM has seen tremendous growth over the last 20 years, doubling in size between 2012 and 2016. Yet, we know there continues to be a tremendous need for high-quality education for all children.  ETM is poised to meet these needs now and into the future. We will reach more children next year and have a larger, sustainable impact across New York City because of you.

As we continue building organizational capacity both to support the growth to date and support increased impact in the future, we are excited about the coming year for Education Through Music.

Together we are changing more lives through quality music education.
