Encore! Sistema Music Program

Encore! Sistema

“Music…has the power of forming the character and should, therefore, be introduced into the education of the young.” – Aristotle

About Encore! Sistema

The design of the program directly meets numerous social and educational objectives by providing young people with an opportunity for cultural and artistic enrichment and serving as a direct solution to problems such as bullying and violence. By actively engaging youth and children in a daily, after-school, community-focused activity, Encore! Sistema builds an inclusive network through which these students may develop resiliency, social capital, and the sense of accomplishment that stems from hard work, both as individuals and as a collective.

El Sistema in Music Education

El Sistema presently provides opportunities for inclusion and growth through music participation to more than 500,000 young people, many of them otherwise disadvantaged, at over 205 centers or nucléos throughout Venezuela. The program is now being adopted as a model for similar music education initiatives in more than 25 countries worldwide, including Canada. At least ten Sistema-inspired programs currently exist in Canadian cities across the country
