Education Through Music – Los Angeles

Funded in March, 2008: $20000 for 1 years
Education Through Music – Los Angeles is the first affiliate of Education Through Music, the New York-based music education program.   Education Through Music – LA partners with schools in underserved areas within Los Angeles County, and in its second year has expanded from two to four partner schools in Los Angeles serving approximately 1500 schoolchildren. With Dana funding, ETM-LA will offer a series of workshops to address the needs of their teaching artists and the in-school music teachers with whom they work.  Training will include: ongoing monthly mentoring and observations to support the work of ETM-LA teaching personnel; professional development for academic staff; and sharing of knowledge and best practices to enhance the programs.
