Give In-School Music Classes to Los Angeles Youth



ETM-LA serves over 6,000 disadvantaged students with weekly, yearlong music classes at no cost. We provide music teachers, instruments, and guidance for schools to sustain the program

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Research shows that when music instruction is included as part of the core curriculum, children show vast improvement in their reading, writing, mathematical, and reasoning skills. Yet thousands of low-income children are deprived of an education that includes music. California students lag behind national averages in arts instruction-up to 50% less in music instruction at the elementary level. This project will benefit 665 children of the 6,000 students we serve annually.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project forms long-term school partnerships to provide weekly, sequential music instruction for every child. ETM-LA trains and mentors professional musicians and academic teachers, and provides management guidance for principals.

Potential Long Term Impact

Education Through Music-LA empowers low-income kids through quality music instruction as part of a well-rounded education. Students demonstrate personal, academic, and creative growth, and the arts are fostered in the community.
