    Success story in Alaska

    Students at Glacier Valley Elementary in Juneau, Alaska are undergoing an educational experience that seems to be paying off. Juneau, Alaska Music Matters (JAMM) is an El Sistema-inspired program, based in teachings in Venezuela  that uses the power of music to motivate and inspire young children.  Music builds critical habits that empower the children to persevere   It’s hard to master a song- but they get to enjoy the end product.  Such practice builds confidence in children as they face different challenges.  Since putting this program in place, the students who were failing were now passing.
