School Partnerships

We form long-term partnerships with low-income area elementary and middle schools which lack the resources for school-wide music programs. ETM-LA provides music instruction on a weekly basis (30-32 weeks) as a core subject in its own right and as a means of supporting learning in other areas.  Schools interested in a partnership should be able to:


  • demonstrate that the school leadership, staff, and parents are committed to a school-wide music program,
  • show a multi-year commitment and vision towards building sustainability of their music program,
  • be designated a Title 1 School (ETM-LA’s partners typically have on average 85% or more of the population on Free or Reduced price lunch),
  • identify a designated music space,
  • draft a schedule which incorporates weekly music instruction as part of the school day for every student, including those with special needs, and
  • commit to contributing a portion of the cost of the program (ETM-LA heavily subsidizes the music program, typically beginning at 50% year 1).


Should your school be interested in pursuing a partnership with ETM-LA, please complete the application below.


Consultant Programs

For non-Title 1 schools, ETM-LA offers resources to help bolster music education programs across Los Angeles County through providing multiple services including:

  • curriculum support,
  • planning and designing a sequential, comprehensive school-wide music program,
  • on-site mentorship and evaluation, and
  • professional development for music and other faculty.
