El Sistema and American Music Education
Lesniak, Melissa
Music Educators Journal, v99 n2 p63-66 Dec 2012
The brainchild of Jose Antonio Abreu, El Sistema, a music education program for aspiring orchestra musicians launched in Venezuela for students of limited means and now spreading to other parts of the world, has become a subject of interest to music teachers and teacher educators in North America. This article examines a bit of the program's history and considers some of its attributes and principles that may be applicable to American music education. (Contains 22 notes.)
