Education Through Music: The Podcast

Education Through Music: The Podcast

Music education is an essential component of a well-rounded education – it catalyzes students’ academic achievement, increases their motivation for school, boosts their self-confidence, and supports their social and emotional well-being. Yet, far too many students do not have access to music education. Education Through Music: The Podcast addresses this inequity by highlighting the value of music education to students, the critical role that qualified music teachers have in transforming classrooms into spaces of learning and discovery, and music’s unique ability to strengthen school communities. Every month, podcast host and Education Through Music Instructional Supervisor, Noah Teachey, sits down with guest teachers, students, families, schools administrators, and education researchers to discuss the importance of music education in our schools and in the lives of the 20,000 students Education Through Music serves across New York City. Education Through Music is a 30 year-old music nonprofit organization that partners with under-resourced New York City schools to build sustainable music programs.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
