#1. In 2019, what percentage of CA students were enrolled in music class at school?

A low number isn’t it? Education Through Music-LA (ETM-LA) is here to fix that. Our mission is to provide music for every child. We strive to partner with more schools every single year.


#2. Arts Education mandated by the state of California for grades 1-12.

Section 51210(e) mandates the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA), which states that  music, dance, visual art, and theater be included in the school curriculum for all students in Grades 1-6 Section 51220(g) mandates that the VAPA be offered to all students in Grades 7-12.

How awesome! Unfortunately, there is little enforcement or support for schools to provide Arts Education for every student.


#3. Why do thousands of California schools lack Music Education?

Many school districts and leaders know the power of music education in schools. Unfortunately, schools in low-income  areas have had to make numerous cuts to their programs just to stay open. ETM-LA partners with under-resourced schools to offer high-quality and sequential music education for every student, at a shared cost with each school.


#4. Have you made a contribution to keep music in schools with ETM-LA?
