After reading media stories about the low-quality education New York City students received, Education Through Music founders Edmund Schroeder and Eldon Mayer decided they wanted to take action. After seeing first-hand a school utilizing music education to improve educational outcomes, they decided to collaborate in 1991 to provide music education to schools that did not have the resources to teach their children the arts. Since then, Education Through Music has grown into an organization that provides access to music education to thousands of children, giving them the access they deserve.
To positively impact student motivation, achievement, and self-confidence by partnering with under-resourced schools to integrate music education into the core curriculum.
To be the leading music education organization whose expert teachers, high quality curriculum, and sustainable program positively impact schools, student learning, and lives.

“If music and education is important, it’s important for everyone”
“I love that the children are now able to have their own recorders to play in school and at home. This new music program is truly amazing! It has given my child confidence in singing and playing an instrument!”
“I don’t think an education is complete without music.”
“When we perform, it makes me feel really happy, and say, ‘Wow! We actually did it”
