Keeping Music in Schools: Education Through Music-Los Angeles

The reduction of fine arts programs in public schools sends the message that the acquisition of creativity and mastery of the abstract aren’t imperative for the proper growth and development of our students. Education Through Music-Los Angeles knows otherwise. In 2006 they began partnering with inner-city Los Angeles elementary and middle schools to bring quality music education to over 800 students without it. ETM-LA now serves more than 5,500 students pursuing its mission to secure music in education by providing disadvantaged students with qualified, well-trained music teachers.
