Our Mission

In 2006, Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETM-LA) was founded with the mission to provide and promote quality music education in under-resourced schools as part of the core curriculum for every child in order to nurture students' academic achievement, and their creative and overall development. We partner with school districts and schools to further equity and access for students in historically marginalized communities.

Our Impact

Education Through Music-Los Angeles utilizes music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school, and self-confidence, and nurtures the skills that can help students thrive in the future. We believe in equity and access for all children to receive dignity and hope through quality music education. We achieve this solution through comprehensive in-and after school music instruction, intensive professional development for music teachers, and leadership guidance for districts and schools to sustain their program long-term.
