Donations to El Sistema Indianapolis changes lives. Hear from one of our teaching artist and their experience.
"I am seeing [students] learn more chords and move back and forth between them more easily. Consistently successful experiences allow them to explore their potential and realize the possibilities are endless when it comes to music. Some parents are attending and helping this semester which is also nice. Parent involvement and help is welcomed and healthy for both the students and the children. Younger siblings are also able to experience the joy of music when they come along.
The kids are also learning the responsibility of caring for an instrument. I have seen them become much more familiar with their instrument and they have become more responsible in bringing them to class and taking care of them. They have also become better at following directions and moving through the processes of class and learning. Through education, structure, consistency, nurturing, approval, caring and FUN, I am seeing the kids learn, become more responsible, gain more self esteem and play their ukuleles! Yay! Having this kind of opportunity and experience will help them both at school and in life. I can't wait to see how this semester progresses!"
