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).

ETM provides an "Aesthetic Foundation for Thinking." Aesthetic moments open the child to a world of awe and wonder, compelling them to ponder, imagine, create - to be thoughtful. This natural curiosity and desire to learn promotes child-directed learning in all subjects. Children question and problem solve, build language skills, develop metaphoric thinking, engage in symbolic play, and expand their imagination.
