March is Music in Our Schools Month

We are grateful for your support to keep music in our schools!  As March is Music in Our Schools month, Education Through Music-LA has drummed up support by showcasing our students’ musical growth while building bridges between communities across Los Angeles and our nation.

On March 10th, ETM-LA students joined their voices with millions across the nation in the World's Largest Concert, hosted by the National Association for Music Education (MENC). At precisely 10 am PST, ETM-LA students and teachers from Castelar and Stephen Foster Elementary Schools sang and played in time with the nation in a simultaneous performance of music with the theme - “music lasts a lifetime”.

Then in April, Education Through Music-LA will commemorate its 5th anniversary by hosting its first-ever Music Unites the World Festival. Bringing together children from all of our partner schools, such communities from South Gate to Sylmar will be represented in an exuberant day of musical traditions and learning. Professional musical guests will lend their talents and their ears to our students as Castelar Elementary in Chinatown plays host to students, families and community leaders. Culminating in a concert en masse, this day is truly going to be a celebration of all the people and communities that have made ETM-LA's last five years a success.

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership to give at-risk youth quality in-school music education!
