Learning Matters produced a piece for PBS NewsHour about music education. Producer Cat McGrath and correspondent John Merrow worked with the Harmony Program, which offers free after-school music education to mostly low-income students. The program is modeled on similar efforts in Venezuela, known as El Sistema. You can watch it above.
