Things to Remember about El Sistema: A Response to "El Sistema--A Perspective for North American Music Educators" by Tricia Tunstall
Lesniak, Melissa
Music Educators Journal, v100 n1 p72-74 Sep 2013
Melissa Lesniak, the executive director of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony, discusses how much she enjoyed reading the responses to her "El Sistema" article and appreciates the opportunity for healthy dialogue and debate. In response, she states that there are many common goals and objectives across all music education programs that can easily be identified for the betterment of all, and she feels many of these commonalities were addressed in the discussion. Before moving forward to addressing the aspects of agreement with author Tricia Tunstall, Lesniak rejoins the conversation and clarifies a few misunderstandings in the on-going dialogue concerning her "El Sistema" piece.
