Founded in 2006, Education Through Music-Los Angeles partners with inner-city elementary and middle schools to restore school-wide music instruction back into the regular curriculum for every child. We are an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization based on the ETM model with proven success in New York City and have grown to serve over 12,000 Los Angeles schoolchildren with sequential, comprehensive yearlong music instruction.

“When I was a kid…I was fortunate enough to go to a school where music was locked into the curriculum, elementary through high school.  It’s a real tragedy when kids are not exposed [to] and taught music at an early age.”  ED HELMS - Actor & Advisory Board Member, Education Through Music-Los Angeles
