Media Monday: The Changing World

Last night The Changing World (a BBC Radio program) aired a wonderful segment about the classical music program El Sistema.  The program–which started 30 years ago in the slums of Caracas, Venezuela and has now taken root worldwide as result of its success–teaches classical music to children as well self-esteem and discipline along the way.

The program is a testament to the transformative power of arts education.
