We believe that music fosters individuality, creativity, and a deep sense of fulfillment in young people and, as such, should be an essential part of our education system. Yet data from the 2012-2013 school year shows that more than 50% of high school students across Los Angeles County are not receiving any music instruction throughout all four years of high school. These ‘solutions’ to budget cuts deny our students a holistic educational experience and youth ultimately miss out on important platforms for creativity and self-expression.
SLAM! Program Los Angeles engages a network of passionate college student volunteers to teach after-school music classes in underserved public high schools, filling the critical voids left by underfunded or nonexistent music programs.
