More videos from the NBYO's learning tour of Venezuela

Officials from the NBYO toured Venezuela last week to learn more about El Sistema, a program that provides free music education to children and youth in poverty. The NBYO is contemplating bringing the program the Canada. In fact, the El Sistema program has been successfully exported to several other countries in the world! Will Canada be next thanks to the efforts of the NBYO? Stay tuned!

The members of this El Sistema strings group are only two years old. They begin with vocal and rhythm training, introduction to instruments, and then incorporate playing along with the vocal and rhythm lessons.
