ETM-LA music teachers often need a pianist to accompany students during concerts and/or rehearsals. If you are a retired musician or music teacher, we especially welcome you!  If you are interested in playing piano to provide accompaniment services, please contact Victoria Lanier, Executive Director at

Office Intern Volunteers

Office internships are open to folks of all ages. Volunteers have included seniors as well as those looking for substantive work experience in a growing music education 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, where their efforts will play a key role in the organization’s short and long-term success. The exact duration and duties will be determined based on the applicant’s skills and the organization’s current need.

Professional Development

Throughout the year ETM-LA hosts intensive music teacher training for our staff as part of our ongoing efforts to provide top-notch music instruction in schools.  To that end, we enlist accomplished music educators and artists who have a proven track record of success in the music classroom to lend their pedagogical expertise.  If you are interested in supporting our efforts in professional development, please contact Program Director and forward a recent resume.

Strategic Planning

Our organization is committed to furthering our mission in order to serve increasingly more children each year with in-school music education.  A key to our sustainable growth is the dynamic planning and implementation of our strategic plan.  Our strategic planning committee serves to seek, research and make recommendations for ETM-LA’s strategies for long-term sustainability.  If interested in learning more about being involved with ETM-LA’s strategic planning, please contact Victoria Lanier, Executive Director, at

Music Teacher Interns

Perhaps the greatest advantage of being a Music Teacher Intern with ETM-LA is the opportunity to observe and work with a seasoned  Music Teacher. Music Teacher interns see first-hand what it’s like to work with children in a classroom setting. The ideas and routines used by the teaching artist will be invaluable for any intern who anticipates working with students in schools, camps or private settings.

All Music Teacher interns are eligible to attend music teaching workshops provided by ETM-LA. These workshops are invaluable to teaching artists or future teaching artists. Training is provided in classroom management techniques, musical pedagogy and methodology, developmentally appropriate practices, learning theory, assessment, lesson planning, etc. For more information on requirements and how to apply, please contact Victoria Lanier, Executive Director, at

Board of Directors and Advisory Board
