    Power of Music

    A joint project by the Annenberg Institute and WNET was recently released: The Power of Music, a free online professional development course about El Sistema.

    El Sistema is a transformational music education program, begun in 1975 in Venezuela, that has helped hundreds of thousands of children in poverty envision a brighter future for themselves.  Music educators in the United States, inspired by their Venezuelan colleagues, have begun to establish programs with a similar mission — to use music as a means to help young people realize their full potential as citizens.

    Eight half-hour videos and 40+ shorter clips explore a variety of Sistema-inspired programs and practices used by music educators and teaching artists in diverse communities across the U.S.  Accompanying the videos in eight course units are a wealth of online resources, including interactive tools, a facilitator’s guide, and strategies aligned with the national standards.
