Keep the Music Playing in LA County Schools

Tax deductible
Show your support for music education during Music In Our Schools Month in March!

Founded in 2006, Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETM-LA) is committed to providing quality music education in under-resourced schools as part of the core curriculum for every child in order to nurture students' academic achievement, creativity, and overall development. We partner with school districts and schools to further equity and access for students in historically marginalized communities. ETM-LA’s reach has grown from 2 schools and 800 students in our first year to 40 schools and over 18,000 students this year. Help restore music education for the 75% of elementary and middle school students in Los Angeles without it.

Your contribution today will go towards:
  • Expanding our Music Teacher Recruitment and Internship Programs three-fold to bridge the gap of available music educators in Los Angeles.
  • Supporting ETM-LA’s 14th Annual Music Unites the World Festival (MUWF): a two-day community event in which partner school students across LA County receive master classes, perform, and come together in celebration of music.
  • Providing high-quality, weekly, culturally responsive music classes taught by devoted music teachers to over 18,000 students this 2023-24 school year.

At ETM-LA, we believe EVERY CHILD deserves a well-rounded education: one that includes music. On behalf of our schools, music teachers, and thousands of students across Los Angeles County, thank you for joining us to keep the music playing!
