Through a unique approach of kids-teaching-kids, Ethan’s Music Room provides lessons in musical concepts and demonstrates how the arts and music are subjects that escape from the classroom and enter our daily lives. Made by kids, for kids, with kids, Ethan’s Music Room illustrates how music bridges culture, learning, the arts, and social development.
Ethan’s Music Room explores elements and themes in music through interactive play that transforms a child’s natural curiosity about the world into the study of how music works, its purposes, and its diverse meanings.
BY KIDS, FOR KIDS, WITH KIDS
Ethan’s Music Room was created under the philosophy “by kids, for kids, with kids.” The show was produced by a team of nine high school students from the Journalism & Media Academy Magnet School as part of the school’s partnership with CPBN.
All assets, coloring sheets, activity pages, and promotional materials, were created by the Student Production Team. Using this unique approach to educational programming – making every aspect of the production a learning experience – Ethan’s Music Room is true student-centered learning.
