California students lag behind national averages in arts instruction - up to 50% less in music instruction at the elementary level.Project Goal:
Research shows that when music instruction is included as part of the core curriculum, children show vast improvement in their reading, writing, mathematical, and reasoning skills. Yet thousands of low-income children are deprived of an education that includes music. This project will raise $50,000 to benefit 350 children of the 1750 students we serve annually.Potential Impact:
Education Through Music-LA empowers low-income kids through quality music instruction as part of a well-rounded education. Students demonstrate personal, academic, and creative growth, and the arts are fostered in the community.
