Students recognized as having talent, good work ethic, above average academic standing and family support, their teacher will recommend them for Pathways, an opportunity to study music at Eastman Community Music School (ECMS) through high school.  Play It Forward provides ECMS private lesson support and volunteer mentoring to prepare for their audition.  83% of Pathways graduates have gone on to college.

Dr. Carl Galland has been working with Selina Smith-Soto on her Pathways audition. We wish her success and look forward to seeing her grow in her instrumental studies!
