Education Through Music-Los Angeles partners with inner-city schools with the mission to provide and promote music in disadvantaged schools as part of the core curriculum for every child to enhance students' academic achievement and creative and overall development.

In-School Music Education Programs Our primary activity is forming long-term partnerships with Los Angeles County schools to help districts and school principals establish and sustain school-wide music education programs steeped in Common Core Standards that serve every student. ETM-LA is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a licensed affiliate implementing the ETM model in Los Angeles County.

Our PSA is here!  Thank you to the Women in Film Production Program.

Consulting ETM-LA offers guidance in professional development, curriculum design, and program implementation to schools and organizations both locally and around the country. Clients and partners have included orchestras and public, private and charter schools.

Community We bring children, families, parents, and artists together to make music through school concerts, community events, and our annual Music Unites the World Festival.  This past year, we were honored to have Film Composer Joseph Trapanese (Insurgent, Straight Outta Compton, Oblivion), Colburn Choir Director Misha Shtangrud, and Woodwind Artist Phil Feather (Jurassic World) coach our students! Read full story here
