Programs: Making Music in the Schools is a six-year old outreach program that impacts approximately 200 Los Angeles middle- high school students each year. On average, Making Music in the Schools conducts music workshops at four different schools, with two hour workshops twice a week, over a ten week period. Students of these communities usually experience their first opportunity to compose music with the instruction and guidance of professional music composer. During the program student learn basic fundamentals of composing all types of music from small ensemble, symphonic orchestra, film and opera house, to modern pop, jazz, and rock.

As one of the most innovative non-profit composer service organizations in Los Angeles, ACF-LA is dedicated to supporting composers and the advancement of new musical works in Southern California. Its mission is to provide Southern Californian composers, at all stages of their careers, with valuable resources for professional and artistic development. ACF-LA provides composers new opportunities to perform for audiences in communities where cultural events are rare, and engage audiences in the creation, performance, and enjoyment of their music. By combining communities with composers, the Forum helps develop the next generation of composers, musicians, and performers alike. To this end, ACF-LA has a long history of seeking venues in underprivileged areas, and locating composers of artistic merit and cultural diversity who will most easily engage these communities.
