ETM does and excellent job of combining the very best of music pedagogy with a strong grounding in the most current brain research. Mary Helen Richards founded the institute to further the study of how children learn and how to best teach music. Each year The Richards Institute of Education and Research hosts ETM Winter Courses in various locations around the country. There are also summer colloquiums held in one or two locations each summer.
Here is an introductory video of the work we do. For more information please visit the ETM website.
