Présentation de l'éditeur

“Reminds us of how arts education can change lives.” —Gary Stager, Huffington Post

In this “vivid story” (Economist), Tricia Tunstall “chronicles the origins and growth of Venezuela’s acclaimed El Sistema national music education program” (Reed Johnson, Los Angeles Times) and illustrates its overarching goal: to rescue children from the depredations of poverty through music. What began in Venezuela has extended to Los Angeles, New York City, and Baltimore, illustrating that El Sistema is not just a program, it’s a movement. Combining firsthand interviews with compelling stories, Changing Lives reveals that arts education can indeed effect positive social change in the United States and around the world.

The news of El Sistema has drifted into the U.S. as a kind of dessert buffet--one amazingly sweet report after another. It has sounded too good to be true, and I hear many people respond that it is hyped or must be some new "flavor of the month." Changing Lives offers a full meal of El Sistema, so we can dine healthily on its history, its precepts and processes, its mysteries--it is full of factual protein, and a healthy serving of exotic fruits and substantive veggies. (Enough with the metaphor.) This book is a required reading for those who have some kind of interest in or opinion about El Sistema, so you can actually know what you are talking about. And you never had such a pleasurable required reading assignment--Tunstall writes beautifully, turning every part of the 35 year history into engaging stories full of vivid detail. The marvel of El Sistema seems even more marvelous after reading this beautiful book. And special thanks to the author for including the emergence of El Sistema in the U.S. in this history, giving us hope that the miracle from South America that redirected the lives of hundreds of thousands of at-risk kids can redirect the lives of kids in North America in the same way, and in the same expanding numbers. And this hope is already being realized. This was the most inspiring book I read in 2011. Like me, and thousands of others, you will believe that Jose Antonio Abreu deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, and that Dudamel is every bit as splendid as you thought.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Story of Transformation Through Music 7 août 2014

The story narrated in this book is breathtaking. How one man, Juan Antonio Abreu, and his dream of El Sistema, transformed Venezuela from a country whose professional orchestra employed no Venezuelans to a country where EVERY child has the right to study music with gifted teachers for as many years as they wish, to have an instrument to play, and the opportunity to play in musical groups of all sizes and talent. Now the country has several world-class orchestras of young people and even school children who are invited all over the world to play for sophisticated musical audiences and then treated to enthusiastic standing ovations and patrons shouting approval! These young musicians are proficient not only in all genres of European music, they are also proficient in Latin American music, both popular and classical. To hear and see (via YouTube) more than 200 talented young musicians all playing together enthusiastically and extremely articulately for a gifted conductor, Gustavo Dudamel, who is himself a product of El Sistema, is a grand testament to Abreu's dream and Venezuela's support for this transformative program.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buying More Copies for My Board 8 janvier 2012

This is an excellent overview of El Sistema in Venezuela--at least based on what I've gleaned from articles read elsewhere. I especially appreciated the chapters on the founding and early history of the program. I am always looking for more details on operations and curriculum to consider for our Scrollworks program in Birmingham, Alabama. Ms. Tunstall has given us much to work with. The book is also very inspiring, which is why I intend to get copies for our board and some of our donors. I hope there is a follow-up in the future on the US programs she visited.
If you are starting an El Sistema program without benefit of an Abreu Fellow on staff or without the resources for an extended visit to Venezuela, this book will give you some ideas and some comfort. It's not easy. It only looks easy because Venezuela is 30+ years into it.

This is an informative and inspiring journey throught the development of El Sistema in Venezuela and the power that learning to play music with others has to motivate young people to become creative and caring members of society.
Gustavo Dudamel, the charismatic conductor with focused love of young people, has completely changed the environment of classical music not only in Los Angeles but all over the world. Don't miss this positive development in the world. It's a great antidote to network news of today!
