BURBANK, CA – National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $80 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $10,000 to Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETM-LA) to support their In-School Music Education program.

“These awards, reaching every corner of the United States, are a testament to the artistic richness and diversity in our country,” said Mary Anne Carter, acting chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. “Organizations such as Education Through Music-Los Angeles are giving people in their community the opportunity to learn, create, and be inspired.”

“All children should have access to quality music education as part of a well-rounded education,” shared ETM-LA Executive Director Victoria Lanier. “We are grateful for the NEA’s support and partnership to help keep music in schools.”

Education Through Music-Los Angeles’ In-School Music Education Program puts comprehensive, high-quality, sequential music education back into the core curriculum at underserved, inner-city schools. Their work serves as a solution to close the student achievement gap and has grown from a reach of 800 students in 2006 to almost 15,000 children this 2018-2019 school year. ETM-LA has been recognized and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts since 2016.
