Learning through the Arts
The Royal Conservatory of Music Learning Through the Arts® (LTTA) is a proven transformative educational program that uses arts-based activities to teach the core curriculum by providing teachers with creative tools to engage all students in math, science, language arts, social studies, and more.
LTTA brings specially trained artists, certified to help teach curricular requirements, into the classroom to work creatively in partnership with classroom teachers. Together they create lessons that make the core curriculum exciting and relevant to all students and learner types. For example, students are learning numeracy through dance, literacy through media arts, and science through music. It is now the largest full school intervention program in the world, reaching more than 377,000 students in the last ten years. Demand for LTTA continues to increase exponentially across North America and around the world.
At the conclusion of a three-year Queen’s University study, students in the LTTA program scored an average of 11 percentile points higher in math than their peers in non-LTTA schools.
With more than 45 studies on the effects of the LTTA program, the research has consistently shown benefits to not only students, but also teachers, principals, and LTTA artist-educators.
Our hands-on programs fuse the arts, cognition, and curriculum in multiple learning paradigms, and are proven to enhance the capacity of teachers to teach, the ability of children to learn, and the potential of schools to inspire.
• One of the most extensive differentiated instruction programs in the world
• The only program of its kind to specially train and certify artist-educators
• The only arts-infused education program to demonstrate proven results through academic research
