The Corona Youth Music Project in Queens, New York City, is an example of how music education can be effective even with limited resources. Alvaro Rodas, the founder and director, started the program with no money, no kids, and no space. But he recognized a community that did not have access to quality music education or after-school programs and wanted to create an opportunity for the children living there. With support from parents, volunteers, and the students themselves, the program nurtures young musicians and builds their confidence as performers. They give back to their community by performing with their teachers at a local senior citizen center. Peer mentoring - initially a strategy for addressing a shortage of teaching staff - has become an essential and empowering aspect of the program. Musical language camp helps younger students develop and retain skills, and thrive as part of a musical community, over the summer. About the series: A professional development resource for P-5 music educators; 8 30-minute video programs, plus overview; course guide; online interactives; and website. The Power of Music is designed to help pre-K through fifth-grade music educators integrate into their practice effective teaching strategies used in El Sistema-inspired programs. The video series features teaching artists across the country committed to providing music-making opportunities to children who otherwise might not have them. Incorporating their own ideas, experiences, and pedagogical expertise, these music educators have adapted and created innovative teaching strategies to nurture a special kind of musical citizenship in their students.
