Empowerment Through Music (ETM) is the New Mexico Jazz Workshop’s community outreach program that provides access to free, quality music education classes for young people.

Empowerment Through Music was founded in 2009 to expand access to arts education. This “music and mentoring” program promotes school engagement and plants the seeds for lifelong enjoyment of the arts. Professional musicians share their craft with young people in a supportive environment and help them acquire the “superpower of music”.
