GW038: Hitting the Right Note in Education with Victoria Lanier
Dec 9 14
Education Through Music–Los Angeles, an independent 501(c)3 organization, began in the Fall of 2006 to provide and promote the integration of music into the curricula of disadvantaged schools in order to enhance students' academic performance and creative and general development. ETM-LA is based on the successful ETM model (New York, 1991).
Every child deserves a well-rounded education: one that includes music. Yet 61% of schools in California do not even have one full-time equivalent arts specialist. ETM-LA utilizes a comprehensive program that incorporates music into the education of every child, including those with special needs.
As schools look for ways to re-introduce the arts back into the curriculum, some schools are opting for exposure opportunities, by bringing in an artist here or there, or through programs that donate arts materials but don't include a plan for how to incorporate these things into the overall learning plan. Education Through Music is the only nonprofit in Los Angeles that provides a comprehensive program to bring music education to inner-city schools, ensuring that the work they are doing will have a long-term impact with the students being served.
ETML LA has many Hollywood stars champion their cause from Ed Helms (The Hangover 2, The Office..), Joshua Bell (Grammy Award Winning Violinist), Glee to John Williams, famous film composer, he has composed for movies you might have heard of like Jaws, Indiana Jones, Star Wars.. and many more.
Victoria Lanier grew up in New Jersey and was heavily involved in music from an early start. She majored in music at Princeton and after graduation started teaching for Education through Music at an inner city school in New York.
She saw firsthand how the program benefitted the children and when she later moved to Los Angeles, she was inspired to start the LA branch of Education Through Music.
"Music transcends cultures, school communities and languages," Lanier said. "Kids can come together and speak a common language." Victoria Lanier

I love seeing the light shine on those that deserve it the most. So many of the folks that are highlighted in this show are rarely recognized by other media channels, yet they are so deserving! Great work!
