Comments Changing Lives: Gustavo Dudamel, El Sistema, and the Transformative Power of Music

  1. I d give this book 3 stars for the writing but a jumping out of my seat, standing ovation 5 stars for subject matter and inspiration level.I found this book really by accident I work for the Department of Education and decided to google best education books of 2012 one day I was expecting a lot of books about charter schools and testing, but instead, the book that seemed to top the lists was this one a story about Venzuela s music education program I m about to marry a music educator, so I was t [...]


  2. The subject matter of this book is powerful than the organization or writing Tricia Tunstall introduces us to the Los Angelos Philharmonic s young director Gustavo Dudamel and then tells us about the innovative Venezuelan program called El Sistema that produced his musical genius El Sistema is an after school program offered in many Venezuelan neighborhoods where poor children are offered group music instruction from a very young age One quote, page 34, addresses parents amazement at the change [...]


  3. I think what is remarkable about this book is that it is written by a music educator After reading this, I m certain that this book couldn t have been done any other way In parts of the book, especially the parts where musical performances are being described, Tricia Tunstall s skill as a writer is augmented by her extensive knowledge of music This makes the writing all the beautiful, and as a reader, I could feel how important El Sistema has been, and still continues to be, to the children in [...]

  5. I was extremely inspired by this book It is about the El Sistema program It was particularly beautiful to read about how music has the capacity to change lives El Sistema was started by an economist Abreu in Venezuela who also studied music The program has been in existence for 35 years so there is documentation that it works Yes, as a musician, I already knew that but to read documentation that gives proof that it has changed the lives of an entire generation of children in Venezuela was incred [...]


  6. We think our votes might not count wars, conflicts, atrocities beset countries far away and schools nearby We think that as a single person, nothing we do will help very much.Then, we read what Jose Abreu started with a few of his friends, and we see the extensive reach this amazing effort has had throughout South America and many countries on other continents Tunstall reminds us that one person can be the start of bringing goodness and even peace to the world My sister told my mom to read this [...]


  7. Part of me wants to make every musician, especially every music educator read this, but there are good reasons for the three star rating El Sistema is flat out amazing and inspiring, but this book is so adulatory that it gets super repetitive and it does make it seem as though any one else isn t helping kids as much as they could I know this isn t necessarily true Long before El Sistema was known in the United States, I was made keenly aware of the value of music to kids in poverty during my stu [...]


  8. I gave this book 3 stars mainly due to the Tunstall s monotonous and repetitive writing style The content, however, deserves 5 stars without a doubt Given that I had previously seen two segments on 60 Minutes about El Sistema and had attended Dudamel s performance in Carnegie Hall a few years ago with the Simon Bolivar Orchestra, I was already quite well versed on the subject, hence my opinion of the author s relative monotony Jose Antonio Abreu is a genius and deserves much recognition than ha [...]


  9. Very inspiring and absolutely fascinating I have a renewed love for music and importantly the human spirit Plus, now I have a new love and respect for the people of Venezuela and I now I actively promote the idea that we are all American because we re sharing this continent and need to think globally because our decisions politics, environment, etc effect others.As a music educator, I found and excellent source of ideas through YOLA and inspiration to bring sistema style teaching to my school d [...]


  10. I read this book with than normal interest, because I just finished hearing all of Mahler s 9 symphonies and the fragment of the 10th conducted by Maestro Dudamel over the last 3 weeks M Dudamel conducted all but one the 8th of the symphonies from memory no score in front of him , and the quality level of the music was superb M Dudamel was a product of the El Sistema movement in Venezuela, started in 1975 by Jose Abreu The movement seeks to interest and engage young children from poor backgroun [...]


  11. I agree with many people on here The story of el Sistema is inspiring, but the writing is a bit bland and repetitive Plus some of the chapters just described famous concerts, ted talks or YouTube videos I feel like I could have found out about el Sistema just by watching that, so the book didn t add any new perspective I also would have liked a bit depth about how they over came their challenges Everything just seems too perfect The emphasis on social change is a positive step for music educati [...]


  12. For those interested in youth development, social reform, education, musicntially, providing hope, not hopelessness, the betterment of disadvantaged lives therefore society through the absolute joy of making music together, this is a command performance I couldn t put it downspirational, uplifting, a book that demands to be read.Caveat There are 16 pages of wonderful black white photos that are included only in the hard copy, not e readers.


  13. Very inspiring.Didn t very much like the intro, but then the story of El Sistema began and I was captivated.




  14. The book is worth reading and informative cI had hoped for information about Gustavo Dudamel, but I guess I have to wait for his biography.
