Sean De Buck
I'm a New York transplant from Albuquerque New Mexico working to get my degree in social work. If I had to sum myself up in a few words it would be, well, I'm restless, but I LOVE fitting all the things I can into this life, while making sure to give back while I'm at it.
I'm running the New York City Marathon for Education Through Music. I'll be working hard to raise $3000 dollars from here until race day. Promoting arts in the schools is something I've become increasingly more passionate about as I've gotten older.
I've seen the impact that art, creativity, and expression can have on and individual and community level. I never studied music growing up, and I've only now realized that impact it's had in my adult life. Working abroad, and here in the states, I've seen the absolutely powerful role that music has on the development of individuals and communities.
The experience isn't just anectdotal. Studies have shown that youth who study art and music demonstrate greater emotional processing and stability, better proficiency in school subjects across the board, increased self esteem, and an increased likelihood of finishing school and moving onto college.
Education Through Music is an organization that helps provide music education to schools that are often overlooked::
MISSION Education Through Music (ETM) partners with inner-city schools to provide music as a core subject for all children, and utilizes music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school, and self-confidence.
