Cultivating Gratitude

The Ensemble seeks to connect and inform all people who are committed to ensemble music education for youth empowerment and social change.

Cultivating Gratitude


Curating a strong internal culture is a major factor in a program’s health and sustainability. Lainie Rowell goes long on the subject in her recent Edutopia article, “Cultivating a Culture of Authentic Gratitude.” Rowell emphasizes that demonstrating gratitude can promote social and emotional learning competencies in both students and faculty. Even simple gestures, like open letters of thanks and regular “shout-outs,” lead to increased happiness and social awareness. These classroom-based strategies are good practice for anyone who supports youth education.
