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.
Findings from 2011-12 are now online. ETM instruction is associated with increased student learning in music and academics and with improved general development of students, and ETM builds support of music education within partnership schools and communities.
