Description

Teaching music composition— critical to developing musical literacy— is a challenge for many educators. It has recently emerged as a focus for El Sistema in Venezuela. There, and at PS 11 in Brooklyn, New York, composers and teaching artists Jon Deak and Angélica Negrón infuse the Sistema philosophy into their groundbreaking work with young composers. Their approach is based on the fundamental belief that all children are inherently musical and there is no limit to what they can achieve.
