Music education makes a difference. Each year, ETM helps thousands of children to learn skills, gain self-esteem and become excited about school. But for the long term, we are helping our partner schools establish strategic plans to hire their own music teachers and sustain music education beyond the existence of ETM.

Data

Prior external evaluation has found that ETM supports a variety of positive outcomes among students and teachers.  ETM added a full-time evaluator to staff in 2012.

Program evaluation for the 2011-12 school year provides evidence that ETM has continued to improve students’ music skills, support their academic achievement, and enhance their general development. The findings also indicate that ETM teachers continue to provide quality music instruction, and that collaboration remains evident between ETM teachers and classroom teachers to promote music education throughout all areas of learning. Overall, ETM engages the support of the overall school community, including parents of ETM students.

Success Stories

Our programs have helped students to master skills and gain self-confidence. By working closely with principals, ETM has helped schools graduate from having no music education at all to employing their own music teachers and sustaining programs beyond ETM’s involvement. In addition, we have helped others to replicate our model in other communities.

Testimonials

ETM’s work has been received enthusiastically by principals, teachers, parents, students and donors.
