Education Through Music is the study of artful teaching and the process of learning through song and play.  ETM activiies build the imagaic system and symbolization process through the synergy of language, song, movement, and interactive play;  thereby, laying the foundation for the building of intelligence.

The links above reveal details about the five aspects that comprise every song and play experience in Education Through Music (ETM).

In ETM, movement is contextualized by the language and music of the song. This "hook-up" provides critical stimulation to the vestibular, proprioceptive, and tactile systems necessary for sensory integration. This results in an increase in the ability to focus and attend, awareness of the environment around them and the ability to comprehend that environment, a critical first step in the development of meaning.
