Project Description:

Ethos, Inc. was created in 1998 in direct response to massive budget cuts that destroyed most music education programs in Portland's public schools. Working directly with students throughout Oregon, Ethos, Inc. hopes to introduce a whole new generation of youth to the magic of music. PSU Capstone students partnered with Ethos to design and deliver an arts education curriculum that incorporates jazz to enhance student learning outcomes in mathematics and reading.
