ETM-LA is a prominent organization making a difference in children's lives early on. They are an essential part in supporting the development of learning, encouraging talent, and building confidence. I am proud to have joined the ETM-LA team as a volunteer, and truly look forward to continued support in any way possible.
ETM-LA is a great organization that truly inspires the entire educational and music community. Its commitment to providing children with the opportunity not only to learn (and love) music, but to develop math, reading, and social skills, is unparalleled and exemplary. I am so honored to be a part of this organization and believe wholeheartedly in its mission.
ETM-LA is an amazing organization. They bring inspiration to everyone involved in the group. As volunteers, you see kid's eyes light up with excitement when they learn something new, or perform in front of people. The kind of confidence and learning excitement that ETM-LA gives children will affect so many other aspects of their learning. Music is such an important component of education and learning that often gets left out. Education Through Music - LA is bringing that to the students who need it most and they are doing it in a way that is inspiring and fun.
I was delighted to learn about ETM-LA and their inspirational work with keeping music in children's lives through schools, so it was without hesitation that I joined their ranks of volunteers. I was incredibly fortunate to grow up at a time when music was offered regularly in my public schools. It's such a loss when children don't have an opportunity to experience music classes as a standard part of their educations. ETM-LA Executive Director Victoria Lanier has impressed me with her sincere passion and tireless efforts to make this an excellent organization. I am not surprised at the outpouring of support and continuing involvement in ETM-LA by so many professionals in the music industry.
Education Through Music - LA is a frontrunner in positive change in our broken education system here in the greater Los Angeles community. As a professional musician and former educator I can truly attest that this program not only provides underserved children with the highest quality music education, but more importantly enhances all aspects of these children's academic experience through its incredible comprehensive curriculum. This program's primary focus is to use the key fundamentals of music (rhythm, pitch, reading, mathematical divisions, emotional expression, historical context, sequencing, scientific principles of sound and physics, foreign languages, eye/hand coordination and motor skills, public presentation/performance skills, artistic expression ...to name a few) to enhance and support the students grasp on essential life skills and academics. In addition, this is not an after-school program. This program is part of the regular school day for every child! I have seen first hand the profound difference they have made in children's lives over the years and am proud to say I will continue to support the wonderful work they do in the lives of our children and our community!
ETM-LA brings inspiration and personal development for not only its students, but parents, co-workers and volunteers alike. ETM-LA has created an environment that is focused on people connecting and learning on a face to face basis. They take great care in providing resources and tools to people that would otherwise be forgotten about. ETM-LA helps to remind us that people providing information in an intelligent, caring, and nurturing way will always aid in developing future intelligent, caring, and nurturing mentors.
Education Through Music-Los Angeles is a non-profit that truly believes in the mission to bring music to every child in Los Angeles. Glad to be a part of this wonderful organization.
If you are passionate about music and would like to get involved in bringing first hand music education to the future generation; then I highly recommend volunteering and supporting ETM-LA. Victoria and her staffs commitment, passion and energy to bring music as a core curriculum to the inner city school community is truly unmatched. I've been a regular volunteer for the past 2 years and couldn't have been more proud to have served this organization.
This is a great charity, I have been working with them for a couple years now and the first thing I noticed is how dedicated and passionate the whole team is towards bringing music to every school. They are extremely hard-working and make all the events genuinely fun and exciting for all the kids who participate. Definitely a great non-profit!
This wonderful organization is child, education and music focused. They believe in providing high quality training for their teachers and the benefits are evident in the quality of programs that they provide. I was able to observe an elementary music class and was impressed with the children's enthusiasm and pride in the music they were learning and performing.
This is such an amazing organization! The people that work there are incredible. They are passionate, dedicated, sincere and so appreciative of anyone and everyone's efforts to help ETM-LA. I have worked with many different organizations in my lifetime, but ETM-LA stands out as one of the best non-profit I have been fortunate to be involved. These great people and the inspiring work they do for our community and children for education in music is life changing for many.
After being exposed to the lovely and competent leaders of ETM, my daughter was inspired to participate in the choir. She was so happy and motivated! The director is wonderful! The performance was fantastic, memorable and heart warming. I will never forget the evening performance and everything my daughter gets to do. Music expands people to be more than they thought they can be. I hope many more people can have this kind of experience.
ETM-LA is a terrific organization. The people who work there are dedicated, passionate individuals who absolutely love music. The work they do with the children is incredible, and the children love it, too. If you value wonderful people doing tremendous work, consider giving your time to ETM-LA.
i have both worked and volunteered for this nonprofit. I've seen many aspects of the organization, from dedication and passion from the staff members to the impact music instruction has on the students. ETM-LA has had a huge impact on the students of Los Angeles, and the music instruction is top-notch.
ETM-LA puts music into under privileged schools in the Greater Los Angeles area serving over 6,000 low income disadvantaged youth. The passion for having music education for every child as part of their core curriculum in schools is shared with the staff, faculty, and volunteers of ETM-LA. They work tirelessly to develop funds and raise awareness for ETM-LA's mission, education in music. I'm honored and appreciative to be a part of such a meaningful organization!
This is an outstanding non-profit that provides comprehensive music education to disadvantaged students in Los Angeles area schools. During a time where music programs are being cut, not only do they partner with districts and schools to support the reestablishment of school music programs, they level the playing field by making sure EVERY CHILD receives the highest quality music instruction from expert, well trained music teachers. This goes beyond after school programming, special assemblies or temporary artist residencies. They are IN SCHOOL for ALL GRADES for the entire school year. The programming is outstanding and schools are seeing real results not only for the learning of music, but the development of the whole student.
This is a fantastic non profit, doing wonderful work and really making a positive impact on childrens' lives all over Los Angeles.
Everyone is so friendly and supportive and I love being involved!
Education Through Music - Los Angeles is an amazing organization. When I was growing up my parents asked me "What instrument do you want to play?" There was no question that I would play one - but the choice of which instrument was up to me. The rest is history. This amazing non-profit gives each child an introduction to music through free public school based music education programs. The children light up when learning about music and they are inspired to grow as individuals. Each child deserves the opportunity to learn about the arts and Education Through Music - Los Angeles is leading this movement!
The Board, staff and volunteers are all dedicated professionals with a love of children and music.
I have known ETM-LA since April, 2011 and find them to be an excellent non-profit. They are very professional and I am glad to give my highest recommendation.
It is amazing when you find a unique nonprofit that truely is dedicated to the program goals and the children. Education Through Music - Los Angeles is that nonprofit and it is wonderful to see how the management and staff will do anything to support the childred with honesty, professionism and developing the musical goals for each child with interface to the community.
Education Through Music-Los Angeles provides music programs to students in public, parochial, and charter schools, with every child in these partnership schools receiving a general music education. With school districts cutting funding for the arts, I think it is more important than ever to continue the tradition of a comprehensive, sequential music education in schools so that every child may have the opportunity to learn and experience the gift of music. ETM-LA is a non-profit that truly cares about changing the lives of the children, and making a difference by strongly believing in the mission to bring music into disadvantaged schools in Los Angeles.
